Hi! My name is Andrea Joyce. I am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner in the state of Nebraska, a Licensed Mental Health Clinician in the state of Iowa, and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Kansas. I have been in practice for 16 years. I work with diverse populations and have certifications in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Adoption Competency (TAC), and Parent Child Interactive Therapy (PCIT). I specialize in treating trauma and am certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), I also treat depression, anxiety, grief, and PTSD, in addition to other mental health concerns. I have worked in an agency setting, a university setting and with Law Enforcement. I also work very closely with foster care and juvenile court in my face to face practice.
I believe to heal we have to focus forward and honor ourselves and our expereinces that have made us who we are. I believe therapy is a process that is best facilitated by taking a person centered approach and creating a safe space to begin the process of healing. By meeting the person where they are at in life, they learn to understand the path that has led them to seek growth and to work to acquire the skills needed to be successful and strong.
Focus should be strength based. Just because a person is struggling, doesn’t mean they are failing. Focus on what is working and how that can be strengthened to bridge them through those struggles and get to the other side, where they can feel the success to keep moving, and thus, focusing forward.
I am so grateful to be able to take this journey with you.

Andrea does really well with getting to the root of the problem, even if you don't know what it is. She is very non-judgemental and it's easy to open up to her. I very much enjoy working with her :)

Andrea is by far the best therapist I have ever had. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have worked with her. She is always there to listen and provide feedback, and she genuinely cares about me as a person. We worked through a lot of trauma, and addressing it has made my life so much better. I felt like I would be accepted and not judged no matter what I told her, and it really helped me talk about subjects that I felt uncomfortable about. I cannot express how much better my life has become because of Andrea's help, and I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you so much for being such a positive influence in my life. I will be forever grateful.

Andrea has helped me overcome so much of my anxiety in the time we've worked together. I feel completely comfortable explaining my frustrations and problems to her, because I know that she'll accept them for what they are and help me find healthy ways to work through them.
