Hi. My name is Andrea. I'm a Mental Health Counselor licensed in Massachusetts and Nebraska with 10 years experience as a therapist. I began my career working in an inpatient dual diagnosis unit. I simultaneously worked as a therapist for the federal government proving therapy to men and women looking for guidance on making good life decisions. For several years, I ran an outpatient clinic and was fortunate enough to work with clients ranging in age from 5-68. Needless to say, my experience as a therapist has been vast and includes people from all walks of life! For the entirety of my career, I've done initial evaluations for all of my clients, in addition to clients being seen by other therapists. This has given me the opportunity to learn about and work with an array of clients with many different presenting problems. Some of specialties include depression, anxiety, self esteem, communication issues, and relationship problems. In addition to these specialties, I have worked with many people who have suffered traumas due to abuse or other factors. My counseling style is collaborative. It's important to me that the people I work with feel like they're being heard and that therapy is being tailored to their needs. I do not believe that therapy is a one size fits all so I will work hard to figure out what works best for you instead of providing generic responses and interventions. You can expect that I will be honest, friendly, and supportive during our time together. I hope to provide a judgement free zone where you feel able to share whatever is on your mind, no matter how embarrassing or uncomfortable. I use cognitive behavioral approaches but I will tailor my approach to meet your needs so there is a greater change of success. I have been providing online therapy for some time and find that this is the best way to provide access to mental health for everyone. I have found that this platform allows people to share their thoughts, reflect, and receive fast responses that just isn't possible with traditional face to face therapy. We no longer have to wait weeks for appointments in order to start working on feeling better.

Hi there! My name is Kerri Taylor, MS, LIMHP. I currently reside in Omaha, Nebraska. Throughout my childhood and adulthood I have lived in many parts of the country from little towns to large cities via military moves. It has been a pleasure to work with individuals from different backgrounds and cultures. For the past few years, I have been privileged to work with low income individuals specializing in trauma, domestic violence, major mental health and life skills assisting with finding hope in situations that can feel overwhelming. Some of my practical experience includes extensive volunteer work and support services for military families and individuals in transition. Life often goes in waves. My goal is to assist you on your journey in a way you can enjoy the calm times and navigate through the periods of high tides. I am trained in many treatment modalities but tend to find the most success utilizing solution-focused therapy, trauma-focused therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Confidentiality is of the utmost importance so that we can have a strong therapeutic bond and you feel comfortable sharing those parts of your life which you generally do not expose to the public world. I look forward to working with you!

Hello! I'm Sadie, and I hope I can be helpful in whatever has brought you here today. I am a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner in Nebraska. I have 17 years of experience working in the mental health field in residential, outpatient, in-home, and hospital settings. The largest part of that time has been spent working with children and families dealing with trauma, abuse, relationship conflicts, depression, and anxiety, among other issues. I received my Master of Science in Family and Youth Services/Clinical Counseling in 2012 from Bellevue University in Bellevue, NE. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trust-Based Relational Intervention but also feel comfortable with other modalities depending on what might be most effective for the client. I know that there is always a modality that can be matched to the needs of the individual. My style begins with being person-centered. I don't believe there are cookie-cutter answers to life's challenges, so I begin by learning about the client and what will best help them achieve their own goals. I have experience as both the client and the clinician, so I know how difficult it is to seek help and open ourselves up to vulnerability. I focus on empathy and connection in my approach to meeting the client's needs. I see therapy as a team approach to tackling life's complications, so I will work with you to determine measurable goals and achieve them.

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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Greenwood 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood, 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood 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 68366 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood, 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.

Greenwood 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.
