Karen E. Baumstark, PhD, CTACC, Psychologist in Omaha
You want to make changes in your life. You want to break out of the old patterns and problems that are holding you back. But you're not sure what to do. I can help you access and develop your inner and outer resources to create better relationships and a more satisfying life. With over 35 years experience as a therapist, I am an effective life-change partner for you. We will work together to understand the root causes of your problems, so you can make real, lasting, and significant changes in the aspects of your life that are making you unhappy.
I work with adult individuals or couples dealing with depression; anxiety; panic attacks; past or current trauma, PTSD; abuse or neglect; life transitions; relationship issues; narcissism; bipolar; divorce; work problems; money issues; general stress management; graduate school stress, and medical problems such as preparation for surgery, medical fears, chronic pain or illness, and weight management.
I am interested in helping you learn about yourself, including your dreams, so you can gain control over your own life. I use a compassionate and respectful approach, believing it best to let you determine the pace and timing of change. I consistently focus on understanding your experience, feelings, and needs.
