My name is Lindsay Olson and it is my intent to offer you a comfortable, safe place where you can feel heard and understood. I work with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, communication difficulties, adolescent concerns, and many more topics. As a Christian and a practicing Catholic, I value spirituality as an important part of life. My background includes attending trainings through the Catholic Church focused on dealing with spiritual battles. If you are interested in incorporating your faith into therapy, I would be happy to do that. If you are interested in experiencing change in your life, I encourage you to contact me and I will help guide you to your goal. I look forward to meeting you!

Life is full of challenges. Sometimes one comes along that sets us back and we may struggle with ways to see a positive future. A decision to see a counselor is an action that can enable us to share the burden, have a sounding board, and gain understanding and insights into those issues troubling us. Counseling, at its best, is a partnership that restores hope, and gives you the strengths and skills to regain energy for life. I believe that our thoughts, health and behaviors strongly affect our emotional and physical well-being.
I can help if you:
º Have lost a loved one
ºAre dealing with a serious illness of yourself or family member
ºHave difficulties at work
ºAre experiencing stress overload, sleeping difficulties or anxiety
ºFeel a constant lack of interest in life and yourself
