17 years of experience

I have been in practice for just over 17 years and have worked in a number of positions providing psychotherapy to individuals, children, adolescents, couples and families in different settings. I have worked with individuals expressing many different concerns, some have adjustment concerns and some have major mental health diagnosis and supporting through life changes. I graduated with a Masters of Arts in Counseling in 2004 and I am an Independent Licensed Mental Health Practitioner (LIMHP) as well as an Instructor for a Community College. In working closely with people I have found that using a multitude of different theoretical approaches is finding the one that best suits the individual. A few of the approaches are Client Centered, Cognitive behavioral, Dialectal Behavior, and Existential to name a few. It is beneficial to match the style that is most productive with the concerns of the individual and determine together the approach to the most beneficial outcome. I have worked with diagnosis that range from depression/anxiety to Paranoid Schizophrenia and individuals that are self mutilating. I encourage questions and best fit determination as this is a special journey for most individuals to partake it, so it is essential to be as comfortable as one can be as this reduces the uncomfortableness in those sensitive situations that we all work through. I would love to discuss your pathway that is going to most fulfilling for you through life and would be delighted to be part of that if possible. Shane M. Crockett M.A. LIMHP, LMHP

Am I the right therapist for you? I would say that finding the right therapist is based on the “goodness of fit model”- whether my approach to therapy and personality are the right fit for you. So let me share a little more about myself, so you can decide if we would work well together. Most clients describe me as authentic, friendly, nonjudgmental and down-to-earth. I enjoy what I do and find conversations with my clients stimulating and exciting. You will always get honest feedback from me. One of my personal values is to practice what I preach. I will not ask you to engage in treatment modalities I have not practiced myself. Health and well-being is the backbone of my personal life practice and is an ongoing pursuit of my growth and learning. I enjoy working with individuals and couples looking to overcome personal challenges, such as marital issues, loss, and grief, depression, anger, family conflict, relationship issues, major life transition challenges, or spirituality issues. My approach is solution-focused counseling because it is result-oriented. I also use person-centered or CBT (or an integrative approach) methods depending on the needs of the client. I've spent nearly two decades in ministry-helping kids, teens, adults, parents, groups, and families navigate their unique situations, and I have been teaching counseling at the graduate level since 2016. I am currently a Military Family Life Counselor, with over 7 years of military service. I have traveled the world and embrace all peoples, cultures, and beliefs. I use a holistic, non-judgment and multicultural approach to counseling. I believe in working with clients' strengths and support systems to enable them to meet their goals and I am here to journey with you and to help you achieve your counseling goals if you let me. I graduated from Saint Norbert College, with a Bachelor's degree in Communication. I graduated from Creighton University with two degrees: a Master of Science degree in Community Counseling and a Doctor of Education in Leadership with Emphasis in College Counseling. Currently, I teach exclusively at Creighton University's Graduate School, where I serve as a Resident Assistant Professor in the Department of Education, School Counseling and Preventative Mental Health Program. I also have a private practice where I provide services to a diverse population and provide supervision to pre-licensed therapists, interns, and graduate students.

I am licensed in Florida and Nebraska with 7 years of professional work experience. My family and I moved to Florida from Nebraska this year to be closer to extended family. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology and my graduate degree in Clinical Social Work. I began my career in the Community Mental Health setting where I provided both group and individual therapy. About three years ago, I transitioned to the private practice setting while maintaining a working relationship with adult and juvenile probation, and the public schools in my area. I have worked with most age groups and assisted in providing support for various obstacles and transitionary periods in people's lives. I can't say that I have a preference regarding demographics or challenge faced as I genuinely enjoy learning and problem solving. I have gained a better understanding of and an appreciation for the human condition through my working with a variety of clients and look forward to continuing to do so. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I pride myself in tailoring treatment to meet your unique and specific needs.

How to find counseling in Carleton

Finding the best therapist close by in Carleton can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Carleton. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Carleton, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Carleton or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Carleton area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Carleton, elsewhere in Thayer, or in the greater state of Nebraska.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Carleton area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Carleton therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Carleton due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Carleton may not take health insurance, some in the state of Nebraska may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Nebraska you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Carleton, Nebraska working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Carleton above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Carleton helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Carleton therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Carleton therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Carleton therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in NE, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 68326 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Carleton counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Carleton licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Carleton, Nebraska can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Carleton has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
