Focus on the Family's Christian Counselors Network

I provide in the office and Telehealth (online therapy services) for residents in the State of Nebraska! Are you having trouble moving forward in your life? Have you had losses that you are having difficulty healing from? I have experience working with depression, anxiety, fears, substance abuse, codependency, trauma, PTSD, and grief and loss. Let me help you work through your concerns in a safe, confidential, and compassionate setting. I have a group currently forming: "Healing from Betrayal" Women's Group is for women who are dealing with a spouse with sexual addiction, including porn addiction. Sign ups are now taking place, and a pre-group interview is required. If you live in Nebraska but live too far to drive to Omaha and are interested in a phone group, please contact me.

I am a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors and a member of EMDRIA (EMDR International Association). I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Certified Therapist. EMDR is a very effective therapy to process traumatic events. I am a licensed alcohol and drug counselor. I provide substance use (also known as chemical dependency) evaluations for adolescents and adults. I also provide substance abuse therapy for adolescents and adults, including level 1 outpatient substance use treatment. I am not currently seeing couples.

Note that I am not a Medicare or Medicaid provider.
