Our Mission

 

Omaha Therapy and Arts Collaborative (OTAC) is an innovative therapeutic group practice which includes the combined knowledge and talent of highly motivated, independent mental health professionals all working in a spirit of unity and collaboration towards a central mission on behalf of our clients and the community.

We welcome people of all ages, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and cultures. We honor and embrace the diversity of the community by incorporating approaches based firmly on a respect for each person’s right to dignity and the beauty of individuality.

We believe in the importance of sound practice methods, yet are equally committed to assisting and guiding each client on the path to discovering his or her own unique abilities and strengths by utilizing his or her own innate creative and natural instincts. Additionally, we strive to bring our expertise in these areas to the community through outreach and in-service workshops, trainings, student placements, and consultation opportunities. 

OTAC is dedicated is to providing high quality therapeutic services to individuals, families, and groups of all ages with treatment methods based on the most current evidence-based models such as PCIT, CPP, EMDR, Compassion Fatigue, and TF-CBT. 

We are passionate about providing our clients access to our unique and specialized expertise in treatment methods such as Expressive Arts Therapy, Animal Assisted Therapy, and Ecotherapy (Nature-Based Therapy). We also provide additional treatment services in areas such as play therapy, sand tray therapy, and mindfulness-based practices. 

We believe that the healing process can be intensified through immersion of the self in art and nature, and through our connection with others. With this in mind, we have designed an inviting and family friendly space which incorporates the ability to explore creatively in a large group setting in our art studio space and explore the elements of the outdoors including nature-based play and art exploration in our outdoor studio/garden area. We are thrilled that we have the ability to bring a fresh perspective to our clients which includes a larger array of treatment setting options.
