Kent Brooks, MS, PLMHP

  I am currently looking for a few select clients in the state of NEBRASKA that need help with mental illness / life issues.  I will come directly to you for your first session if you live anywhere in the State of Nebraska.  I am also able to provide treatment online for *some* disorders without meeting you in person.  I am currently in the process of positioning myself to accept insurance and will work with you to get your sessions for AS LITTLE as possible.  I am willing to work on a sliding scale for individuals that do not have insurance, or, that have insurance I do not accept.  I am willing in most cases to work for the same “copay” that your insurance would require.  I have worked with individuals whom have a primary diagnosis of a Pervasive Developmental Disability (i.e. Autism Spectrum Disorders, Asperger’s Disorder, etc) since 2010, many of whom also have some form of major mental illness.  I also have significant experience in a long term residential treatment center focusing on dual diagnosis (substance abuse/dependence + major mental illness).  I am confident and comfortable working with a diverse range of issues, but no one can be an expert at everything.  I will do the research necessary to ensure that you get the most cutting edge treatment available in the mental health market today… Bottom line ~ I will help you if I can.

    Mark – sorry for the delay in the response. I have been up to my eyebrows in books attempting to prepare myself to answer questions like the one you asked. At this time I am wholly unable to answer that question as a “therapist” or a “clinical counselor.” The best I can offer is friendship- and an ear.

    Understand – at this point I am not a therapist. However, if you would like, feel free to send me an email and I would chat about this. If you prefer and are comfortable, share it publicly – but I have to cordially ask that you change names to protect the confidentiality and anonymity of anyone you would be discussing if you decide to take the public option.

    Hello!

    I am a psychotherapy intern (seeking a Marriage & Family Therapy credential) in SF’s Bay Area. I am always interested in learning about–and from–students in other states. As such, I look forward to reading you posts.

    Best!
