About me

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 is an amazing counselor, she listens and gives advice when prompted. She really has helped me in my mental health. I can't recommend this counselor enough.

Written on Sep 29, 2022 after therapy with Andrea for 10 months on issues concerning lgbt, trauma and abuse, and bipolar disorder

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.

Written on May 05, 2020 after therapy with Andrea for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I feel like Andrea and I are making a connection, and that she will be able to help me through this crazy time. She's open and wonderful to get to know. I have a belief that your counselor should feel like a friend, and that's what I expressed to her. She has helped in every way to build that connection. Now I said neutral to her helping me with my problems because we have just started! I feel like she is more than capable to help, and that she will be able to help for sure! No doubt in my mind! She's fun to talk with, listens, and relates to you. Even this early in my counseling I can relate to her, and find myself at ease talking to her.
