Molly Hefner, MS, PLMHP, NCC, acknowledges that there’s a stigma surrounding mental health care and tries to normalize counseling with humor and sarcasm.
One of the ways she tries to break the ice with clients? “I have a sign in my office that says, ‘Ask me about my cats.’ And no one ever asks me,” she joked.
Hefner especially enjoys working with teenagers and young adults, and she became interested in psychology when she was a teenager herself. She has extensive experience in suicide prevention and spent four years working at the National Suicide Prevention Hotline before joining the Best Care EAP team.
Hefner received her bachelor’s in psychology from Nebraska Wesleyan University and her master’s in clinical mental health counseling from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
