Barbara Olson  MA, LMHC, NCC


I invite you into a safe, confidential & compassionate place to receive relief from depression, anxiety, grief, & frustration…to leave with hope & encouragement. Counseling helps you learn about yourself, making changes to become the kind of person you really want to be. You can overcome the impact of the past, become strong, confident, & content, and embody the needed skills to influence life’s challenges.


I have 34 years of experience working with people, their emotional needs, and their personal journey towards growth and healing. My work encompasses a deep valuing of human experience in all its complexity, an unconditional regard for individual uniqueness, and a belief that the client has the capacity for positive change within.

Yes, I do accept insurance, as an Out of Network Provider. My fee is between $125 per 50 minute session and $180 per 80 minute session.  I accept cash, checks, Debit cards, Discover, VISA and Master Card.

A variety of day time hours at a discreet location are available to honor your confidentiality. Things often do not get better on their own; it takes us stepping forward, even when it feels difficult or uncomfortable, to make that first call and start on the path to healing. Call today: receive the support you need for healing. Please leave a message if you do not get me personally. I return calls promptly.
