I am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner and Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Nebraska. Since 2005, I have provided therapeutic services to individuals, families and groups from age 1 to 89.
While some people believe that counseling and therapy are for people with problems, I have come to believe that these services are for people that have goals and I have worked with thousands of people in the identification and attainment of personal, relational, vocational and spiritual goals.
With undergraduate and graduate training in philosophy, psychology, religion and linguistics, my approach involves helping others find meaning in life and resolution of their situational concerns.

Ryan is easy to talk to, intelligent, non judgemental, and he had given me solutions to help better deal with my mental health issues as well as relationships in my life that I had been struggling with.
Ryan is patient and has the expertise to identify my areas of concern and provides the tools to help me understand myself better and manage my stressors so I can work on achieving a happier me.
Reaching out for help wasn’t the easiest thing to do. I knew Ryan was the right therapist for me from the first session. He listened to my issues, gave me alternative ways of thinking, and provided me with the tools needed to succeed. I came to Ryan 112 days ago for help with alcohol abuse, anxiety and stress. I have since been alcohol free and am very grateful for his help. For anyone hesitant about online therapy like I was, this is one of the best things I’ve done for myself. Ryan is a true professional. Thanks again!!
Ryan surpassed expectations I didn’t know I had. He really does his best at trying to understand my concerns, respects emotional boundaries and drives the conversation in a very respectful manner. He shares insights that I can process at my own pace and rhythm. One can see that Ryan cares for his patients and is a good listener. Since I started my therapy sessions my anxiety has decreased significantly. Overall, this had a great influence on my quality of life and I am looking forward to every session. Couldn’t recommend more!
Ryan is an excellent counselor who lets me dump all the puzzle pieces out, and then lets me put them back together with some helpful guidance. He's not afraid to let thoughts or reflections hang in the air in silence, and I respect that approach. I've been extremely satisfied with BetterHelp so far and I recommend it to everyone I can. Thank you! I'm excited to see where I can go from here.
Ryan is a very helpful counselor because he is educated in philosophy. The life skills he has to bring and the arsenal of perspective give me the confidence that I am speaking with a professional that can offer me help.
Ryan is thoughtful, and a good listener. His experience and expertise are invaluable, and he makes you feel heard.
Ryan Suhr has been a massive help with my situation as well as general anxiety by explaining the different issues to be looked at in a way that allows me to understand and make informed and smart decisions about my goals in life. Highly recommend!
Ryan is a phenomenal counselor who was able to draw from literature, philosophies, psychology, and sociology in our sessions. It's always tough finding a counselor who works for and with you, especially one who turns the session into a responsive and dynamix conversation without deviating from your needs from it, and Ryan has been amazing with that. I say that last bit as someone who is easily distracted and distracting in my topic changes, but his focus on my needs, encouragements and patience while we talk has always been a huge help.
Ryan is fantastic, he's extremely personable and really helped me out over the last year.
Ryan Suhr is proactive, professional, speedy in his responses and has been great in helping me deal with complex issues.
Ryan has been a great help and listener. He listens and comes back with questions to help me understand and reflect on my life. His approach might not suit every service user but there again our choice therapist is very personal and based on our personal needs and experiences. For me it has been a good fruitful and fortuitous choice.
Highly professional and enthusiastic. Is a patient listener and understood the problems discussed.
Ryan has been extremely helpful in helping me work through my issues and concerns. I’ve have several moments of realization and have received a lot of help and support. Would highly recommend counseling with him! I look forward to continuing my counseling with him.
I really appreciate Ryan's input.
Immediately I felt his energy and eager to assist. He is someone that I can express my ramblings to and he is able to untangle the chaos and locate origins of some of my concerns.
He always listens to what I have to say and finds some understanding that I may have missed with it. I love to hear his thoughts on what I say, because it helps me make sense of my childhood.
In my first session with Ryan, I felt seen and understood. He has a way of boiling down all my chaotic thought processes and self doubts into a human experience. Really great to talk with him, and he gives insightful prompts for me to think on
Very friendly and easy to use. I really like this form of counseling given we are currently locked up. I appreciate the variety of means of connecting. Thank you.
Ryan is honest, unbiased, and non-judgemental, professional, and a great listener.. I was having thoughts that I believed embarrassing and weird, but when I told him he made them seem very normal and understandable. I have had a great experience with Ryan so far and I am excited for the future with him as my counselor.
I am so thankful for Ryan. I am a very private person, but I am very comfortable being open and honest with Ryan. He listens and validates. He is kind and honest. He reminds me that I can’t control others and their actions, but I do have control over my own actions. He helps me problem solve and offers suggestions regarding communication, breathing & relaxation techniques, and encourages me to take care of myself. I’m so appreciative of his perspective and the perspective I have gained through talking with him.
Ryan is really great and I’m so happy I got his help.
Ryan is great. He has a unique perspective, great intuition, is receptive to what I’m feeling, helps me figure out why I’m feeling that way and how to learn ways to push through those feelings towards my growth.
Thank you Ryan for your time and expertise. I'm beyond grateful for the help you've given me.
Ryan is empathetic, understanding and very knowledgeable. He's very grounded and able to take you through a steep learning curve in a way that feels safe and supportive. He's action oriented so if you're willing to do the work, he can help you to make a lot of meaningful mindset shifts and behaviour changes. His spiritual insight and intuition makes him a true gift to all those suffering.
Thank you again.
Very intelligent and intuitive. Very willing to try every approach to understand where I am coming from and what I am trying to say. His questions and comments are relevant and engaging.
Ryan is genuine and helpful. He’s down to earth and a realist. He’s easy to talk to and understands where I’m coming from. I have found these sessions useful.
