Cole Stark

Title:  Mental Health Therapist

Email:  cstark@esu5.org

Phone:  (402) 223-5277


I began working for Educational Service Unit No 5 in August of 2018.  As an Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner (LIMHP), I am trained in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health and behavioral disorders. Personally I enjoy working with children and adolescents as well as their parents and this has been where the majority of my experience has come from. I tend to use a variety of techniques in working with this population, but tend to focus on solution focused, cognitive-behavioral, and dialectical behavior techniques.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.  I also received my Master of Arts in Couseling from Doane College.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Allison for 8 years. She is finishing up her Nurse Practitioner degree in December (2018) and currently is an ER nurse in Lincoln. We live in Waverly, NE with our two children Vayda (4) and Dierks (1).  I can't sit still. I constantly have several projects going at once. One of my newer hobbies is photography and have a website where I post my latest shots (www.colestark.smugmug.com). I like to be hands-on and create things and I enjoy woodworking when I can. I spend as much time as possible outdoors whether it be hunting, fishing, or camping; working on my in-law's cattle ranch in the sandhills, or kayaking with my wife.
