Emily Perlberg, PLMHP
Emily Perlberg is a Provisional Licensed Mental Health Practitioner. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Child Youth and Family Studies with a minor in Education from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a Master of Science in Clinical Counseling from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. She currently works as a therapist in Catholic Charities’ School Mental Health program providing school-based mental health services to elementary and high school students throughout the Omaha Archdiocese.
She loves working with young children and adolescents who experience a difficult time managing emotions causing a decrease in their ability to live a happy, healthy life. She understands the uniqueness each client brings to session and utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with play to address their treatment goals. Building rapport and creating a safe, comfortable space for children to connect is of upmost importance to her. She uses many interventions such as therapeutic games, worksheets and books along with an array of grounding techniques and coping skills to individualize treatment for each client.
In her spare time, Emily enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She is a dog mom to two gentle giants named Oakland and Lincoln. She loves spending time reading outside on her deck, going to the gym, traveling and catching up on the latest Netflix releases. When it’s cold and rainy or freezing and snowy, you can catch Emily by a warm fireplace with a coffee cup in hand and a Hallmark movie on the television.
Emily is currently in St. Phillip Neri, St. Cecilia, and Mary Our Queen schools.
