  • What is therapy?
    Psychotherapy is a tool used to come alongside you and help you cope with and manage your life. It can provide support for difficult circumstances you experience, help you problem solve when you feel stuck, and teach you coping skills to help you manage mental illness.
  • What are common reasons to pursue therapy?
    If you have difficult experiences in your history or have suffered a loss. If you are diagnosed with or suspect you may have depression, anxiety, or another mental illness. If you are feeling stuck in a relationship, work, or personal issue that is creating distress for you. If you feel overwhelmed with your emotional experiences and want to gain skills for understanding and contributing to your own mental health and wellness. If you find that you are fractured from your own sense of self worth--the way you talk to yourself (about yourself) is negative and demeaning. Therapy can also assist with family needs including: Premarital counseling Couples’ Enrichment Couples’ counseling for relationships in distress Resources, coping skills, and problem solving for difficult family dynamics and parenting issues
  • How can therapy help?
    Therapy is a useful tool for processing past trauma or navigating grieving a loss. Therapy can help you understand how your losses and past experiences are influencing your current emotional health so you can take agency over your emotional experiences. Therapy is useful for helping you to manage and treat your mental illness. Therapy can help you get “unstuck” when you do not feel you have the tools you need to change a harmful pattern in your life or relationships. Therapy can assist you to develop a more compassionate, gentle voice with your own self. Therapy can help you restore your sense of self worth. Therapy can help you navigate difficult relationships, restore marital and family connections, or enrich a current relationship that you want to keep strong and healthy.
  • How much does therapy cost?
    Sessions range from $100-$175/session. Rachel and Jami are private pay therapists only, and Caitlin accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare commercial plans, Midland’s Choice, Aetna, Ambetter, and private pay clients. Each insurance plan requires differing deductibles and copays, so prices on insurance are quite variant.
  • Why therapy is worth the cost:
    Therapy, just like any other health service, is an investment in you. Study after study has shown that the quality of your relationships, your stress management, and your emotional well-being impact the rates of illness, life expectancy, and overall quality of physical health just as much (or more!) than any other health factors. At Wholehearted Therapy we truly believe that every person is worthy of having the enriching and supportive experience of engaging in therapy. People often tell us that they think their issues are too “small” or “insignificant” to warrant therapy. We disagree. Just like we turn to experts for information on how to manage other areas of our life (finances, fitness, etc.) it is natural to also seek better understanding of our mental and emotional processes and this can greatly contribute to our overall well being. Our goal is for you to be as holistically well as possible, and we believe that the benefits of giving your mental and emotional health some set aside time through the practice of therapy is priceless.
  • How do I make an appointment?
    Here at Wholehearted Therapy we strive to create an atmosphere that feels comfortable and relaxed. We know that making the decision to reach out for therapy needs takes courage and can feel vulnerable. Here is what you can expect that process to look like: First, you fill out the contact form and one of our therapists (or the therapist of your choice) will respond to you directly. They may ask to give you a brief phone call to better assess/evaluate if they would be a good fit for you. Your therapist will work with you to schedule your first appointment. Once you have an appointment scheduled you will receive paperwork through our HIPAA compliant client portal, Simple Practice. This will help us get the process started of getting to know you and best meeting your needs.
  • How often do I meet with my therapist?
    Clients typically come weekly at the beginning of therapy for 50 minute sessions. A weekly schedule helps gain some congruence and momentum at the beginning of your therapy process. As you gain coping skills and gain more agency every other week or monthly visits may be more appropriate. Your therapist will work together with you to assess how frequently and for how long you will attend.
  • What is an LMHP or PLMHP?
    In Nebraska an LMHP is a licensed mental health practitioner. This means we have completed all coursework, supervised hours, testing, and licensing steps necessary to be able to practice mental health independently in Nebraska. Jami is a PLMHP, which means she is currently provisionally licensed and receiving supervision until she has enough hours to be a full LMHP.
  • What is an LMFT or PLMFT?
    An LMFT is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). All of the therapists at Wholehearted Therapy have completed MFT degrees. Both Rachel and Caitlin are dual licensed and Jami is provisionally licensed (PLMFT) which means she is working under supervision while she logs hours toward full licensure. It is a myth that family therapists only work with couples and families, we actually see a lot of individuals just like any other therapist. Marriage and Family Therapists receive special training to work with families, couples, and individuals from a systemic perspective. This means that we do not see you as just an individual with “issues” but as someone whose issues are embedded in systems beyond themselves--family and larger societal systems that impact the way you think, feel, and experience your life. We attempt to acknowledge and perceive your story within a greater context.
