Welcome to my practice!
A little bit about me.
My name is Misty Olsen. Welcome to my practice! We are here to help you through your journey, wherever that may lead. We offer a safe and respectful environment for you to learn, grow and change through this human experience.
I am a Licensed Clinical and Mental Health Counselor with a trauma-informed and multicultural approach. I've spent years learning the intricacies of change and motivation. I work with those who struggle with addictions, motivation to change, eating disorders, anxiety and depression. I've worked with adolescents to help them increase their social and emotional skills to secure their academic success.
I've worked helping people set and reach personal goals in the fitness industry. After years of watching people struggle through the commotion of health, I knew I was missing something as a coach and trainer!
I realized that as an industry, we were missing a more holistic approach to change that included a larger focus on mental health. I decided to increase my education and knowledge to better help those who desire true change.
I view life and my practice with an existential approach and use such therapies ACT, CBT, DBT and motivational interviewing. We all have opportunities in life to create and become what and who we want to be. We all have barriers as well
Creating your unique essence as a human and choosing to act authentically will create freedom. My goal within therapy is to help you gain self-awareness and learn more about yourself. When we as humans increase authenticity, anxieties and depressive symptoms can be relieved.
Learning to cope with many of life's difficulties is necessary. We can help you learn to manage stressors in order to feel more at peace with life. I would love to work with you if you are struggling with mental health or wellness issues that are causing chaos or continued stress in your life.
