Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska, with around 250,000 people Lincoln is also the home of the University of Nebraska. Lincoln was established in 1856, as a village of Lancaster. Omaha was formerly the capital but since most of the territory's population lived south of the Platte River, the capital was moved to Lancaster, even though Omaha tried to stop the change, the capital was moved. In 1867, Lancaster was renamed to Lincoln when Nebraska became a state.1 Lincoln is one of the only bigger cities in Nebraska that is not located along a river. The city was originally located next to Salt Creek, but with the growth of the area, the saline wetlands are virtually non-existent. The growth has unfortunately infringed upon the habitat of the Salt Creek tiger beetle, which is now endangered. There are virtually no suburbs in Lincoln as the city has annexed all the metropolitan areas. Any area that would have been developed as a suburb has been annexed to the city.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Lincoln, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Lincoln may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Lincoln public health department.
