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. For more detailed information about my practice, please visit my professional website at www.prosightful.org.

26 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am currently licensed in Iowa and Nebraska with over 26 years of professional work experience. The bulk of my career has been in community-based settings as I felt this type of setting was where I could give back to those that have helped me and my family of origin. I had a mother that was bi-polar and had a significant borderline personality disorder. Her first major hospitalization occurred following my birth. I have grown up in the Midwest but have lived in California and South Carolina as well as serving in the US military with one deployment to Afghanistan in which I served as the highest-ranking enlisted member of the Human Intelligence component of a Brigade Combat Team. I have a grown gay son and feel that my own healing process in coming to terms with my feelings toward my mentally ill mother were greatly facilitated by friendships in the queer community and feel a great depth of gratitude and respect for this community. I have been divorced, struggled with my own addiction, co-dependency and mental health issues throughout my lifetime and have carried various mental health diagnoses at different times in my life as well. I don't look at myself as complete expert on life but to quote Brene' Brown: "I might just be a little further down the road in recovery is all". I view therapy as more of an art form in that there are skills and techniques that can be learned and applied to the work of art that is being created, but it is the process involved that brings out the beauty of the final product. I understand the importance of being heard and feel that a person’s truth can emerge through a collective experience in the interaction and engagement with another human being. I hope to bring my experience in life and working with others to your life experience. I view it as a privilege to be able to be a part of the understanding of another person’s life and hope to be part of this journey with you.

I am licensed in Nebraska with over 20 years of professional work experience. I have therapeutic experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, anger management, motivation, self-esteem, confidence, transitions, guilt and shame, substance addiction, trauma and abuse, and personality disorders. I have worked with substance abuse clients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.

My unique experience working in Higher Education Student Services allows me to assist teens and adults of all ages with getting ready and transitioning into college. Not only working with the potential college student but also with parents sending their children off to college. It is a huge time of transition even if the student is going to remain in the same city as their family living on campus or off, or remaining in their family home. This has its own unique struggles. I truly enjoy working with the college-bound or college contemplators! Having someone help guide a first-generation college student or an adult learner going to college for the first time, or returning after many years can help take some of the stress, fear, and possible miscommunication out of this exciting transitional time for the whole family.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Dorchester. 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 Dorchester, 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 in the Dorchester region and in the state of Nebraska. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Dorchester or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Dorchester 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 Dorchester 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 Dorchester 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Dorchester 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.

Dorchester therapists 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 Dorchester 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 Dorchester 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in NE, therapists 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 68343 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Dorchester 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Dorchester.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Dorchester 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 with a Dorchester counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Dorchester, 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.

Dorchester 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
