Founder, Carrie Hillebrandt

Carrie Hillebrandt

M.S., LIMHP, Director of Operations

Carrie received her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Masters’ of Science in Community Counseling at the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2006. She has over 20 years experience working with children, adults, and families, in a number of different environments. She has additional trainings and certifications in a number of areas of practice including: Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Training for Adoption Competency (TAC), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), as well as Sandtray Therapy and Theraplay. With the changes encountered with the COVID 19 Pandemic, services have expanded from only in-office or in-home to telehealth. Carrie’s desire to help children, adults, and families pursue their ability to be the best version of themselves is what she strives for. With working with children as young as infants to adults allows families to recover from trauma using person and family centered practices and nurturing the relationship between caregivers and children in place of therapist and child is just what the family needs. Adults are also given the safe environment they need to improve quality of life; manage symptoms they are experiencing as well as process through areas of concern.
