Kevin M. Whelley, was born in Queens, New York and was raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania. He attended Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, MD where he earned a Bachelor’s of Arts in Sociology, and later attended the University of Scranton in Scranton, PA where he was awarded Master’s Degree in School Counseling, and additionally earned a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study. After Graduate School he relocated to Cape Cod, MA where he was first hired as a counselor at a treatment center in Falmouth, MA. It was during this time that he developed his passion for working in the field of substance use disorder treatment, and knew it was the career path he would follow. After several more years on Cape Cod, in various roles including Evening Supervisor, Treatment Coordinator and Clinical Manager, Kevin decided it was time to return to Northeastern Pennsylvania in order to continue his passion for his work, and serve the community where he was raised. Kevin joined the Banyan/Clearbrook team in April of 2019 as a primary therapist, and was then promoted to the role of Clinical Director in August of 2019. As Clinical Director, the most rewarding part of his job is watching a team of dedicated professionals work collaboratively and tirelessly to help unlock the strength and resiliency within the patients we treat here at Banyan/Clearbrook. Kevin is proud to work for a company that is always striving to be an industry leader in the field of substance use disorder treatment.
