“I have known Anne Barker for  well over a decade, and had the opportunity to work closely with her treating adults and children in a large human services agency. She is a skilled clinician and a compassionate and caring person. The Omaha mental health community is fortunate to have such a gifted psychotherapist and knowledgeable colleague working in our midst.”

“I am pleased to welcome Anne Barker back to our community of mental health practitioners. Anne and I worked together at Heartland Family Service some years ago. In our work with blended and divorcing families, I was impressed with her patience, insight and understanding. Skilled practitioners of family therapy are “rare birds” and we are fortunate to have one back with us. In the meanwhile, she’s gained valuable experience and training to enrich her practice. With Anne, you will find a terrific balance of skill and compassion.”

“As a colleague of Anne Barker when she was a middle school social worker, I quickly realized how much she genuinely cared about the students. Whether a child was dealing with a developmentally appropriate challenge, a crisis, or a topic in a group setting, Anne worked diligently to establish rapport and assist each student to develop constructive strategies to cope with, or overcome, these challenges.”

“I am so happy that Anne Barker has returned to Omaha and opened a private practice; she will be a wonderful addition to our professional community! I worked with Anne when she was the Coordinator and Therapist for Child Saving Institute¹s SAFE program. She provided in-home therapy for children and parents referred by the Omaha Public Schools. While at Child Saving Institute, she also provided therapy to pregnant and parenting teenagers in the Mama and Me Program. Anne brings a wealth of experience in treating adolescents and adults and I plan to refer clients to her whenever possible. I know her to be an excellent collaborator and value her clinical judgment and skills.”

“I had the distinct privilege of working with Anne Barker for six of the eight years she served as a middle school social worker. Anne demonstrates a solid understanding of children and adolescents with matters ranging from mild school and social difficulties to chronic behavioral and academic issues. She possesses sound clinical skills, coupled with a profound understanding of child and adolescent development. Anne has the incredible ability to work with children and families in developing sound and effective strategies to help them achieve their goals.”
