Barbara Olson MA, LMHC, NCC

Has life become too overwhelming?

I invite you into a safe, confidential, & caring environment to receive relief from your emotional pain and to leave with hope & encouragement. 

Passionate about restoration and healing, I specialize in helping adults who have experienced abuse and trauma as a child or lived in an unstable home with alcohol or drug abuse. These childhood events play a significant role in how we interact daily as adults. When these issues are unresolved, stress, difficult emotions, anxiety and depression can occur. This therapy is collaborative, respectful, soothing and gentle. Designed to address underlying problems rather than just the outward symptoms, this counseling process provides you with an opportunity to approach the issues in a safe, values-based environment. You can gain a greater sense of freedom, strength, and insight. Come, we will focus on resolving the underlying issues so you can have lasting change. Many of us long to be truly seen, heard, known and loved. Often times we have spent years accruing just the opposite, leaving us feeling invisible, silenced, isolated, rejected or abandoned.

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.
