Counseling

 

Individual & Couples

 

Sometimes, we just need someone to listen to our story so we are not bound by our negative experiences and emotions. Counseling provides a safe outlet to explore, learn, challenge, and grow as individuals and/or as a couple.

Individual Counseling

My approach to individual counseling involves exploring the past and how that impacts the present and the future. By working together through past issues or traumas, clients are better equipped to live fully in the present and to prepare for their future.

Couples Counseling

My approach to couples counseling involves guiding couples in reconnecting, learning how to overcome conflict, dealing with life’s many transitions, identifying their shared goals, and/or letting go of the past. It is about making a positive, lasting change – as one unit. Through therapy, individuals become aware of their own unhealthy habits, thinking patterns, and actions, as well as the impact it can have on their loved ones.

Video Counseling

I offer video counseling to people interested or committed to therapy, but do not live in the Omaha area. Individual and couples counseling sessions are available in this format.

Without a doubt, fit is important for everyone involved. Because of my strong belief in this concept, I offer a free 30-minute session to new clients to determine if we are a therapeutic match. There are no hidden obligations or expectations here – only the opportunity for us to meet one another. I am available for sessions via telephone, in person, Skype, FaceTime, and Zoom. 

Please call 402.881.8125 to see if this is a good fit for you.

About Me

I have always enjoyed helping people better their lives. So much, in fact, I decided to leave the accounting industry in 2000, and after many different work experiences, I pursued my dream of becoming a counselor. As a native Londoner, moving to the United States was a major change, yet I knew great things were to come: I married Kris, became a US citizen, owned and operated several businesses, and earned a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and Counselor Education. I believe that by having a culturally different worldview coupled with my own life experiences and challenges, I am able to provide clients with alternative perspectives and options. Since 2008, I have assisted individuals and couples in healing past traumas, exploring what they want out of life, and learning how to effectively manage obstacles – ultimately resulting in a sense of freedom and happiness.

What Makes Omaha Counseling Different

Although it is important to learn from and embrace lessons from our past, my sessions tend to focus on solutions and results. By utilizing strengths-based approaches and emotionally-focused therapy techniques, I gently assist clients with the often-avoided exercise of looking inward to elicit a positive shift. What is it that troubles you? How does this make you feel? What holds you back? What do you enjoy/excel at? What can be done differently going forward?

Oftentimes, these questions are difficult to answer and may require a non-biased outsider’s perspective, guidance, and support. This is exactly my role as your counselor.

Exclusive Services Offered By Omaha Counseling

Counseling

Feeling a loss of control in your emotions, misunderstood, frustrated, completely alone, and not understanding why? This may manifest as grief, depression, anxiety, fear, anger, sorrow, or a combination of several of these. It does not have to continue this way.

Coaching

Whereas counseling works through the challenges of the past, coaching addresses the opportunities and fears of the present, as well as the direction for the future. In some cases, you may feel things are great, but you know they can be better. In other instances, you may be facing the challenges of feeling stuck, a lack of spousal alignment, lost, or without purpose. Coaching can help.

Retreats

You know you have more to offer and that there is more to life, but you are unsure what that looks like, let alone how to obtain it. If you find yourself asking, “What’s Next?,” these retreats may be for you. By connecting with your partner through various activities, you both will learn about dreaming big and will discover how to embrace the life you deserve.
