Marilyn Olson, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Carlsbad
Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I believe an individual should feel comfortable with a potential therapist at the very first meeting. I encourage you to shop and take your time at fining your right fit. Thus, I offer a free 30 min. meet 'n greet to provide you with this opportunity. While this is not therapy, it does give you an opportunity to get a feel for my office, my personality, and style. I have over 15 years experience working with individuals and couples who are facing challenges that may need a professional to find clarity, direction, and a more satisfying life.
My focus: Painful relationship patterns (single/married), anxiety, depression, grief, addiction (former therapist at Betty Ford and Casa Palmera), bi-polar issues, pre-marital, and co-dependency.
I do not accept insurance at this time. Fee: $120 (cash/check), $125 charge.
