Gerald Igboanusi


About Me

My name is Gerald. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Nebraska and a Certified Military Family Life Counselor. I have over 7 years of experience working with couples, individuals, and families in both military and civilian environments. I enjoy working with individuals and couples looking to overcome personal challenges, such as marital issues, infidelity, loss, and grief, depression, anger, family conflict, relationship issues, major life transition challenges or spirituality issues.

My primary approach is solution-focused counseling because it is result-oriented. I also use person-centered method depending on the needs of the client. Most of my clients describe me as authentic, friendly, nonjudgmental, and down-to-earth. I enjoy what I do and find conversations with my clients stimulating and exciting. You will always get honest feedback from me. One of my personal values is to practice what I preach. I will not ask you to engage in treatment modalities I have not practiced myself. Health and well-being is the backbone of my personal life practice and is an ongoing pursuit of my growth and learning. I am here to journey with you and to help you achieve your counseling goals if you let me.

I graduated from Saint Norbert College, Wisconsin, with a Bachelor's degree in Communication. I graduated from Creighton University with two degrees: a Master of Science degree in Community Counseling and a Doctor of Education in Interdisciplinary Leadership with Emphasis in College Counseling. Currently, I teach graduate-level courses at Creighton University, where I serve as a Resident Assistant Professor in the Department of Education, School Counseling and Preventative Mental Health Program. I also have my own private practice where I provide services to a diverse population and supervised training to interns.

Gerald Igboanusi is able to understand and empathise with me while translating that in better words or facts to my spouse. I feel that’s the most important requirement in a mediator.
