He has extensive experience helping adults with a wide range of issues: depression (including how men may experience mental health struggles differently than women), bipolar disorder, stress/anxiety, PTSD, marriage and family therapy, and young adults.
Skip's ideal client is not determined by their diagnosis, problems, or goals. Rather, it is someone who may be afraid or angry, but is still WILLING - because they are tired of hurting and struggling, and want their life to change. With a primary focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy concentrating in Mindfulness, clients are able to process the experiences from their life on deeper and more meaningful levels. Then, Skip works together with clients to identify ways to avoid emotional responses (like anger, defensiveness, or fear) and come up with real-world solutions to help clients achieve their goals.

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

I use both exposure and neuroscience based therapies to treat trauma. I believe in recovery focused approaches that may include psychiatric care, community supports, and 12 Step and faith based support groups.

Exploring strategies for life change is a fascinating endeavor. I partner with clients to help them create significant transformations, i.e. help change their point of view about problematic concerns, change behaviors that need to be increased or decreased and change longstanding destructive patterns to new life enhancing choices. I rely heavily on scientific findings to facilitate human change. There are varieties of effective traditional and modern psychological treatments such or eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Cognitive behavioral therapy is the gold standard for anxiety, depressions, phobias and fears.
