All Those Yesterdays is EMDR and mental health therapy provider that includes: mental health assessments, diagnosis, individual therapy, and/or group therapy, or telehealth therapy based on each client's needs. These services are for people who are suffering from most any life stressor, or issue (substance use, misuse, job stress, divorce, marital issue, sexual issues, anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, trauma, DHS involvment, Department of Corrections involvement, etc). The owner and sole clinician’s dream was to one day be able to give the gift that he has received himself over the years in the form of therapy. Stigma has caused so many people to not seek help when they are stressed, or struggling with life issues. Professionals in our community can be especially afraid to seek help due to a certain public image that people think they need to have. Everyone can benefit from therapy including; police officers, lawyers, doctors, therapists, nurses, teachers, and other helping professions. Many in the helping profession end up with what can be called "compassion fatigue" where they expend all their emotional energy on others that they have a hard time taking care of themselves. Ryan understands this fully and wants to be the trusted clinician professionals can also turn to along with the rest of the population.  This is part of why Ryan chooses to use self-disclosure openly to help reduce the stigma and help people understand that our substance use and mental health is just as important as our physical health. He feels society needs to get to the point where if they are struggling with something emotionally or mentally they should feel the same about calling for a therapy appointment as easily as a patient would call a medical doctor if they are running a fever.

Ryan is now able to provide mental health assessments, diagnosis, EMDR, and outpatient counseling counseling. Appointments can be made by calling  712-363-8066 (work cell) and leave a message. If you are in crisis or have an emergency please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. There are NO WALK-IN appointments and the office will be open by appointment only. 

Ryan will be able to provide telehealth, or in person sessions at his regular office location depending on COVID-19 conditions at the time of your call.  All COVID-19 Guidelines are being followed and are in place (social distancing, etc). Groups will be held via telehealth at this time.
