Reaching out for help can be an intimidating endeavor, but having the awareness that your life is not where you want it to be is a great first step. While I generally focus on the present, as we cannot change things that have already happened, we may look to the past in our search for previous success in managing the issues before you. I believe the trust built between client and therapist is the most important aspect in the counseling relationship and the pursuit and maintenance of this trust is an ongoing process. Whether you have been struggling for years or experiencing a new obstacle, I believe we can work through the concerns together. The strength it takes to ask for help is the same strength that will lead you to happiness. I completed my Master’s of Science in Counseling from the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2005. I have been working as a mental health therapist for nearly 19 years in Nebraska. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families struggling with a variety of issues, such as anxiety and depression, trauma, anger management, life transitions and infidelity. I believe I bring a multi-faceted perspective to my work, as I have professional experience with inpatient care, case management, as well as outpatient therapy. Typically, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused and Motivational Interviewing while always stressing the importance of building the relationship between client and therapist based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional positive regard. I look forward to the opportunity to help people with life issues that have left them unsatisfied. Our growth is a life-long journey and sometimes we lean on others in pursuit of our true potential. My hope is that I can assist people on their path when they are looking for guidance.

Hello! Thanks for reaching out for support; I know that can be hard to do sometimes. I’m so glad you’ve come to BetterHelp for some support. Finding the right person to help you is very important. If you don't have a good relationship with your clinician, you won't make the progress you are hoping to achieve. I want to provide you with some information about me in order to help you decide if my experience and style will be a match for you. I have been a clinical social worker for more than 10 years and in private practice providing therapy for 4 years. I have experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and the challenges of today's busy world. I have significant work in the areas of adult and older adult life transitions and grief and loss especially. The feedback I receive from clients is that they find me to be compassionate and nonjudgmental, and they appreciate that I am honest and direct with them. You can expect me to walk with you through whatever difficulties you are facing and help you learn more about yourself and the way you interact with the world. I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it very helpful to participate in video sessions so that we can get to know each other better. At the same time, I am also available to you via phone and text if that is more comfortable for you. Most of my availability is in the evenings and on the weekends but I will check messages at least once during each weekday. I know how hard it can be to find a clinician who you feel a connection with and I would be honored to work with you through this stage of your life.

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!

I am a licensed mental health practitioner in Nebraska with 10+ years experience as a psychotherapist and coach. I work with individuals, couples, families, and work teams in a wide range of areas such as anxiety, depression, mindfulness, grief, life stage change, relationship issues, conflict resolution, and critical incident debriefing, among others. My approach combines solution-focused therapy with cognitive behavioral, person-centered, and mindfulness to provide an accepting and supportive relationship toward the vision each person I serve desires. I am privileged to be able to work with you on the areas in your life you want to address or make changes in. Counseling is a process and may take a few sessions or many sessions. I am committed to helping you on your journey to finding the solution that works for you. Although counseling sometimes takes longer if the issues are complex, many times a short solution-focused approach is appropriate. At the beginning of the session, I will gather information to help assess the issues and the order of importance to you. If you have any questions about any part of the process, Please don’t hesitate to ask. I serve in a warm and interactive way. We will talk about the issues and there may be exercises given to help you move forward in the journey. It is my responsibility to use ethical therapy practices which are designed to help you work toward your goals. It is your responsibility to be an active part of the process. I will work with you to visualize your goals and emphasize the strengths toward success. I believe that creating a plan unique to you is part of this process. I approach counseling with the belief that although life can bring about events or issues that are stressful, even traumatic, our response is important and can empower us to live to our desired vision. Learning how to respond in healthy ways to the stresses in life can help to navigate through the hard times. Intentional and purposeful living is important to fully living the life you love to live: mind, body, heart, and soul. I appreciate the opportunity to work with you!

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Papillion 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.

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 Papillion 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 Papillion 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 68046 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 Papillion 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 Papillion 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 Papillion, 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.

Papillion 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.
