Melinda Olson, MA, AMFT

Are you feeling overwhelmed, helpless, anxious, sad, or having some trouble in your relationships? I can provide a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate space for you to process what you need, and work toward change. I help highlight some of the vicious cycles and patterns keeping you stuck, and challenge clients in a gentle way to help them achieve personal insight into problems. I use an integrated approach, primarily with elements of CBT to challenge any maladaptive thinking patterns that might be in the way, and Solution-Focused to help you define and reach your goals. I have clinical experience treating anxiety, depression, trauma, relational conflicts, and grief and loss.

As a marriage and family therapist, I can offer a unique perspective on issues you’re struggling with not just from an individual, but also a systemic lens, looking at how your biology, relationships, and psychological factors are all playing a role and how they may be contributing to the problem. I have experience treating many age groups including children, teens, adults, and families.

It is a courageous task to realize that we need help, and then to seek that help. Therapy is for anyone and everyone! You are not alone in the fear that may come along with taking this step. Through a therapeutic relationship we can build together, I can help you achieve what you’re hoping for.
