OUTPATIENT THERAPY PROVIDERS

Susan.jpg

SUSAN ECKER, LISW

Susan has been providing counseling support to children, adolescents, adults and families in southwest Iowa since 2003.  She earned her Master of Social Work degree from University of Missouri in 2002.  Susan has a passion for working with adults that are experiencing some form of loss or life transition to include divorce, chronic illness, conflictual relationships, and grief associated with death and dying.


For most of her practice, she has treated a full range of symptoms with cognitive-based approaches to include the practice of mindfulness.  In 2019, Susan became a EMDR trained therapist. She is amazed, after all her years of practice as a therapist, in how utilization of the EMDR protocol rapidly produces reduction of symptoms and restoration of balance.


Susan was born and raised in northwest Missouri.  She and her husband live on a farm in Missouri.  Susan spends most of her time away from work outdoors, and has a deep love of nature.  She enjoys spending time with friends and family, hiking, golfing, gardening, and watercolor painting.  Susan holds a strong belief in mind body connection and practices yoga and meditation.

CAROLINE OBERMILLER, LPC

Caroline grew up in West Wales and moved to US after marrying her husband. One of the first things people often comment on is her accent. Caroline attended Missouri Baptist University in St Louis for both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees.


As a Registered Play Therapist, Caroline believes strongly in the power of play and the healing properties it offers. Play is the language of childhood and through play we support growth, strength, and individuality throughout all phases of our life. Utilizing play therapy with EMDR allows for a unique opportunity for therapy to be tailored to meet the needs of each client she meets.


Caroline approaches therapy with humor, positivity, and a belief that each of us has unlimited potential. One of her favorite phrases is “there are no wrong answers in here.” Caroline will walk alongside each client and meet them wherever they are at in their journey. 

In her spare time, Caroline loves to travel, read, take trainings and spend time on her front porch. She currently has two cats, one dog, three children and a husband who often shakes his head in wonder at her ideas. Time with family and friends is always a priority to her. 
 

 

MEDICATION MANAGEMENT PROVIDERS

STEPHANIE GRAY, ARNP, FNP, PMHNP

I earned a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Nebraska Methodist College in 1996. I then earned a master’s degree in the Family Practice Nurse Practitioner program from Creighton University in 2004. I went on from there to earn a post-master’s certificate in Psychiatry from Creighton University in 2006.


I have extensive experience in the Emergency Department delivering medical care as well as Psychiatric care. I have practiced in close to every level of psychiatric care available which brings a seasoned and well-rounded view into my practice abilities. I have a very special interest in Individuals with intellectual disabilities and co-morbid psychiatric illnesses.


I enjoy the autonomy that my dual licensures provide for me. However, I am also a collaborator with many other disciplines, as they say, “it takes a village”.


Although, I have carried these advanced degrees for an extended period of time, I am a nurse and love to teach students at all levels….Empower those that are our future!
