I counsel from the perspective that we are a product of our relationships-past and present. I approach difficulties from a relational perspective, helping people to resolve problems from a strength-based, solution-focused, brief therapy approach. I involve family members as appropriate to help work through difficulties. A safe space is provided to heal when one or more areas of life is out of balance or causes pain, and I actively support and aid my client's healing process. Clients focus on developing skills to better manage their emotions and problem solve more effectively--leading to happier, healthier lives.
I use DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) to help individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, anger issues. I am also certified in EMDR and have been practicing EMDR for trauma intervention for over twenty years. It is a very effective, fast method for trauma recovery. See EMDR.com regarding this method.
I am trained in hypnotherapy by world-renowed hypnotherapist Michael Yapko, PhD. There are few, if any, therapists in Nebraska who have taken this training. Hypnotherapy is very useful in the treatment of depression and anxiety, as well as with people wanting to stop behaviors such as smoking and overeating.
My practice is located at 440 North Minnesota Avenue in Hastings, Nebraska, near the post office in the Depot Plaza office complex. My office is comfortable--you will feel like you are sitting down in a family room instead of a formal "office." Every effort is made to ensure this is a place of safety where you will feel like you belong. There is room for one or room for an entire family. I look forward to welcoming you to my practice!
