Anthony Kokalj, LCPC

Owner of Fox Bend Counseling

Individual, Adolescent, Couples, and Family Therapist 

My passion is getting to know you in your experience.  I listen and get to know you by creating a "judgement free zone" where we can work together on the challenges and hurts you are facing.   I am well versed in all modalities of evidence-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, ACT, and the Gottman Method, which sort through our cognitive conflicts, but can also integate your emotional self through Psychodynamic & Mindfulness techniques.  My goal is to get you back to your life as soon as possible for I understand everyone's time is valuable, which is why I believe in being interactive in our sessions.  The days of the client talking 80% of the time with minimal feedback are a thing of the past.  My hope is after each session you are able to make the life changes needed so you feel you are gaining back your old self, or possibly a new and improved version.

I have been working in mental health for over 15 years, starting at the bottom and through the school of hard knocks, have become a very successful business and family man.  I love spending time with my wife and coaching my kids in their sporting events.  In addition to counseling, I am a professor at Lewis University teaching psychology in the undergraduate and graduate programs.

I am experienced in treating:

  • Depression
  • Couples & Marital Conflicts
  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety/OCD
  • LGBT
  • Mood Disorders/Bipolar


Graduated from Lewis University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology.
