When your world turns upside down, it can take all the courage you have to hold on. Life can throw some blindsiding curveballs — difficult transitions, traumatic experiences, profound loss , unexpected and worsening symptoms, relational brokenness, and so many more. As the world begins to spin, we wonder how the dust will settle, and what life will look like when it does. I’ve been there, and understand that moments and seasons of life, just like this, take incredible courage to face. It’s risky to look change and challenge in the eye ... but you are far braver than you know.

I love relationships - family relationships, faith relationships, work relationships. It hurts when a relationship breaks down. That's why I started studying marriage and family therapy. It was so fascinating that I completed all of the coursework and then an 1800 hour clinical internship, even though only 1300 hours were required. Since then I've helped hundreds of couples and individuals with highly effective, very inexpensive therapy - it's the most satisfying thing I do. I'm available seven days a week. I would LOVE to help you with my faith-based therapy. - Dr. Chuck Olson

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
