Dr. Hart earned her Doctorate in Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Counseling Psychology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2009. She completed internship at Student Counseling Services at Iowa State University in 2009. For the next six years, Dr. Hart worked in secondary education at the Eastern Kentucky University Counseling Center where she was a staff psychologist and clinical director. She returned home to Nebraska in 2015 and worked for seven years at the Boys Town Behavioral Health Clinic where she worked primarily with adults (18 +) and provided supervision and training. Areas of interest include: depression, anxiety, relational and family of origin concerns, couples counseling, eating disorders/body image, identity development, trauma recovery, postpartum concerns, and phase of life transitions/adjustments. Dr. Hart believes change occurs when people feel heard, validated, and understood, therefore the therapeutic relationship is incredibly important. Her philosophy is that no problem is too little to too great. She aims to help clients relate to their thoughts and feelings in a new way. Some problems cannot be solved or changed, so the focus of therapy shifts to how to live a meaningful and fulfilling life despite what is out of our control to change. Helping clients connect to what really matters to them, showing up authentically in relationships, building upon strengths, and learning to accept weaknesses are examples of how she can help you change perspective and change your life.
