I like to solve problems with creativity, with your unique needs in mind.

I received my MSW from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 1980. I have advanced training in Clinical Hypnosis - using this tool for habit control, pain management, personal growth and psychotherapy.

My work typically often includes individuals and families dealing with the emotional impact of chronic or life-threatening illness. I assist people with Stress, Self-Esteem, Affairs, Relationships, Depression and
Anxiety - including phobias, fears, and excessive worry. I have a special interest and advanced training in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Hypnosis
My specialty is clinical hypnosis. I've been studying and using this fascinating tool since 1982. I find that it has wide application, and brings satisfying results. It has the potential of assisting with stress & anxiety [phobias, too], depression & self-esteem issues, along with pain management, and habit control. Since 1997, I have held the title of Certified & Approved Consultant in Clinical Hypnosis. This allows me to supervise other mental health professionals who also want certification from the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.

To say that there are misconceptions about hypnosis is a substantial understatement. Most of what you will find on the Internet is unregulated & unsubstantiated bunk. Please -- call with you questions before you schedule a time to come in. I am always happy to answer your questions.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OCD is a tricky problem to solve, for a number of reasons. It is tricky because, in the short run, it is tantalizingly easy to just give in to obsessions, do the compulsive behavior, and hope it won't come back.

The problem is that it always does. OCD is persistent, and can be tremendously disruptive to one's life. It can invade work, relationships -- and often leads to deep depression. The good news is that there are treatment strategies that help. Sometimes that includes medication; behavioral therapy is always part of the plan.

Typically, I work with older teens [16+] and adults throughout the lifespan. Over the years, I have occasionally worked with children or younger teens, but these populations often need and benefit from specialized help from those who have the right training. If you are looking for a clinician in Omaha to work with your child, I'll help you with that, too!
Bio
I grew up near Chicago, Illinois, but Nebraska has been my home for nearly 40 years. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 1980. My BA in Psychology and Sociology [1977] came from Creighton University.

Previously, I worked in at Children's Hospital, the child & adolescent psychiatric unit at Midlands Community Hospital - in the days before they became part of Alegent Health, and the community mental health center in Kearney, NE.

I'm proud of my affiliation with Associated Counseling Professionals, PC. We opened our business in 1993, and have discovered a lot about the art and science of running a small business. Whew!
