Hello! I am Kathleen von Kampen, a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner (LMHP) and Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Nebraska, with an M.A. in Clinical Psychology. I have been working with individuals, couples, and groups for over 6 years across a wide variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, family/couple conflicts, postpartum depression, coping with grief and loss, and crisis response. I received my degree at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California, and practiced in the metro-Detroit area of Michigan before moving back to Nebraska.
I approach counseling from a person-centered perspective, with a deep passion and belief that people are equipped with gifts and strengths to help them navigate through life's stressors. In my role as the helper, I am there to reflect those strengths, support and encourage along the journey, and offer tools and skill-building to address concerns. I utilize different modalities of treatment, and often draw on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist clients with exploring new ways of thinking to further impact feelings, behaviors, and overall success toward goals. I seek to prepare clients to navigate life with new skills, such as mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation. This provides a foundation for tackling life's challenges, while also experiencing joy and excitement for increased self-awareness and improved relationships.
I sincerely look forward to working with you and witnessing your story!
