About Me


Holly Hansen

Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and Licensed Addiction Counselor.


Simply put, altering our beliefs, feelings and behaviors can be a hard-won battle. But people are amazingly resilient!

Together we will explore your current beliefs, challenge long-held perceptions, and transform problematic patterns, making life more joyful and improving your connections with others.

My approach is not one size fits all and is tailored to fit the needs of each individual, couple and family. It is my belief that good therapy is collaborative and that each individual, couple and family are the experts in what they need. I bring the experience, knowledge and curiosity to help you achieve your goals.

Feeling alone is the thread that runs through all painful experiences. Whether it is depression, anxiety, loss, disappointment, addiction, losing our sense of purpose, or other issues that leave us feeling stranded. I will help you to create a map towards the connection you seek.

I want to emphasize my ongoing commitment to continued education in understanding the impact of current systems of oppression I am dedicated to fostering a welcoming and affirming environment for individuals from diverse backgrounds, including varying races/ethnicities, sexualities, gender identities, class distinctions, abilities, and religious/spiritual orientations. I have pursued and have an ongoing to commitment to obtaining specialized training, and have access to consultation resources to ensure that I am informed and able to support individuals across a wide spectrum of identities and systems.

I invite you to contact me for a free consultation to discuss your needs and goals to determine if we are a good fit for each other. Email or text me to schedule an appointment at your convenience. I look forward to speaking with you.

My Goal

My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and unique purpose so you can lead a life that you feel is worth celebrating. While I cannot change what has happened in the past, I can help you to live fully in the present, free of any self-limiting beliefs or behavioral patterns that no longer serve you. By applying a variety of effective interactive and solution-focused therapy techniques, we will work together as quickly as possible to achieve the results you are hoping for. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to overhaul your life so it is moving in a more positive direction, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
