Philip Prudhomme

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

Coping with stress, depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), mood swings, panic, fear and paranoia, lack of closeness to others, grief and loss (death, job, relationship), pain, chronic illness, spiritual growth (finding or following a spiritual path); relationship counseling (help building a healthy love or romance relationship, prevention of relationship problems, communication, decisions and conflict, playfulness); marriage preparation (looking at temperament, personal and couple strengths, premarital counseling, family of origin influences, preparing a wedding ceremony); strengthening the family; parenting problems with difficult children and teens; transitions at work, retirement, divorce; ongoing addiction recovery (after treatment). Therapeutic approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Pastoral Counseling, Rational Emotive Therapy, and Reality Therapy. Clients: Individuals (adults and adolescents, some children),Couples.

I work with couples who want a more satisfying life together. I help provide tools that can be used as solid foundation for individuals willing to commit time and energy between sessions. We will explore which personal behaviors contribute to deterioration of a relationship and behaviors which enhance the relationship. I have worked with training programs for Marriage Encounter for 7 years and participated in training for the Denver-based PREP (Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program). I provide opportunity for couples considering marriage to participate in FOCCUS, an Omaha, NE program that facilitates open couple communication, understanding and study.

My experience in both clinical and pastoral counseling adds deeper dimensions to my work experience. I have worked in private practice since 2004 and have been a member of non-profit teams for 25 years. Clients find my office setting provides ample parking as well as close availability to local buses.
