Dr. Kevin Skinner - VP Behavioral Health

The rear window of Kevin's car displays large letter-shaped decals advertising the web address of his addiction treatment site. He doesn't advertise because he needs more clients for his therapy practice. He advertises because he knows the vast majority of people who need help will never find their way into a therapy office. So Kevin is looking for ways to bring therapy to them.

Kevin graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1996 with his master's degree in marriage and family therapy. In 2000, He completed his Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy at Brigham Young University. A licensed psychotherapist and enthusiastic mental health researcher, Kevin entered his profession because he wanted to make a difference. He built a thriving private practice but soon confronted a frustration typical among therapists. He found himself repeating the same things over and over with each new client. Much of his therapy time was spent teaching basic concepts associated with mental and emotional wellness. He kept thinking that there had to be a more efficient and cost-effective way to educate his clients. He first turned to print media. Kevin has authored three books, and his book Treating Pornography Addiction: The Essential Tools for Recovery is Amazon's number one best-selling book on the topic. Yet, Kevin wanted to reach an even broader audience, including the millions of people who are not likely to pick up a self-help book. Kevin turned toward online education, creating multiple online mental health assessments that have been utilized by over 250,000 people. This initial foray into the internet contained the seeds that eventually gave birth to one of the basic concepts behind MyExpertSolution: taking therapeutic tools out of the office and into people's homes.

As one of the founders of MyExpertSolution, Kevin brings the best therapeutic information and mental health services into one location, acting as a liaison with experts and ensuring the quality of educational resources, thus filling the void between education and therapy. Kevin continues to do independent research, presenting his work at academic conferences and publishing in scientific journals. Kevin also enjoys long distance running and spending time with this large family. He is married and has seven daughters and one son.
