Our office is made up of nine independent counselors who offer unique specialties as well as being versed in over 105 years of collective general counseling experience. To the right, you’ll notice the four main categories of assistance we provide, and the amount of time we provide them.
General Counseling – This is day to day sort of stuff. We’ll help you get through any hard time you run across, whether it’s depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, stress management and many other topics.
Relationships – This can be father/mother and their children relationships, couples that are intimate, friendships, etc. If you’d like to chat about your relationships, we’d love to help.
Parenting Skills & Adolescents – We have a wide array of knowledge when it comes to great ways to assist an adolescent to be the best version of themselves they can be.
Substance Use Issues – This covers using substances that may or may not have a control over a portion of someone’s life.
Growth is painful. Change is painful. but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong.
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
Always end the day with a positive thought. No matter how hard things were, tomorrow’s a fresh opportunity to make it better.
You are not a burden. You HAVE a burden, which by definition is too heavy to carry on your own.
Don’t try to overhaul your life overnight. Instead, focus on making one small change at a time. Over time, those small changes will add up to a big transformation. Don’t give up!
Energy is contagious, positive and negative alike. I will forever be mindful of what and who I am allowing into my space.
You are not your illness. You have an individual story to tell. you have a name, a history, a personality. Staying yourself is part of the battle.
One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks.
Today do something for you: Relax, Clear your mind, Take a break, Go for a jog, Watch the sunset. Enjoy the Simple Things. Enjoy You.
For the first session, we want to hear your story. We want you to discuss what brought you in, any specific goals, or anything that is on your mind.
At the end of the first session, we'll chat about the frequency of future sessions and/or the possibility of meeting at the same time every week.
After the first few sessions, we'll make sure we're compatible together...If not, you'll be recommended to another more suitable counselor within the office that may better match what you're looking for.
We'll work with you to develop specific & achievable goals to work towards over the next few sessions. As your goals change, so will how we go after them.
Mr. Gary Potter is amazing! His heart is gold! He helps you find the answers to life's most difficult questions! He's a SUPER listener! He genuinely cares! I've had the pleasure of his company now for over 10 years.....I feel he knows me more than anyone as its real easy to open up my feelings to him! His love of the Lord is big and true!
Thanks Gary for being here for me through my many life trials! I praise God for bringing you into my life.....again and again! I pray God steers others to you and your wisdom and peace......so that they may find happiness and joy!
Gary is a wonderful and easy person to talk to. He helped me get through the loss of 2 children in 3 years. It was definitely a dark time in my life but Gary was always there to help. Thank you Gary.
Gary is a good Christian man who is easy to talk to. He listens to your problems and helps you find ways to heal from past hurts or current problems you are facing today. Its not always easy, but he works with you to find a solutions you can live with. Going to counseling is a great way to find that peace we all deserve. He is very perceptive and a good reader of people. Need help, give Gary a call.
The world can be a rough place. Imperfect people and unpredictable situations can take a toll on even the strongest person. In those times, everyone needs someone they can talk to. Everyone needs a confidant that will listen and help you to find your strength or offer an impartial suggestion. And someone that will gently, but firmly, point out when you are trying to lie to yourself. I have been working with Marv for several years. He has been the person that knows the right time to hold my hand, and the right time to slap it. Marv's patient and impartial counseling has helped me to find the person that I want to be, and helped me find the path to become a better husband and father to my family.
Great place and great associates. I am not sure where I would be without the help of these professionals. They genuinely care about your life and do all that they can to help you in every aspect of it. I highly recommend any of the associates to anyone who is looking into counseling care. It really does help to just "talk" to someone. These professionals also do a great job of working with your schedule even if you are a busy person, they manage to get you in.
They were able to work with my schedule when I was in high school while playing sports, and also all through college while being a full time student and 2 sport athlete. Now today, being over 300 miles away and living in Colorado they STILL work with my schedule and allow me to do sessions over the phone and even squeeze me in when I am back in Kearney visiting family. I have been someone who has been involved with their office for more than 8 years now and they have really helped me get through the ups and downs of life.
I am lucky to have Dawn in my life. She is pretty amazing.
