I am Justin Olmstead, a Master's Level Graduate working with clients to unlock their full potential in life and relationships. I have degrees in philosophy, theology, and a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I specialize in sex addiction, anxiety/depression, couples, pre-marital, crises in faith contexts, and dreams/nightmares. I am a member of several professional organizations and commit to ongoing professional development.
Potential clients often wonder what to expect in therapy. Our sessions are geared to your unique treatment needs, which we will identify together, based on our conversations and hand-picked assessments during intake. I collaborate with you on creating an action plan for home in order to reinforce what we build together in session. With me, you can rely on structure without stale routine and responsiveness to unique needs without pre-packaged gimmicks.
A typical session may utilize brief psychoeducation on thoughts, emotions, and neurobiology. I may invite you toward integrity in your own professed faith as an important dimension to holistic psychological healing. I might quote ancient texts, modern psychologists, and especially your own wise words back to you. All sessions are dynamic yet grounded and strategic.
My commitment to you is to be an authentic human being---a therapist doing his best to live from the principle of love for others, "Love your neighbor as yourself," and the Golden Rule, to "do unto others as you would have them do to you." I strive to be what I call a "genuine therapist," a co-struggler that does not see himself above you as an expert but a person who strives to offer prepared knowledge and high-standard service. It is my privilege to journey with you along one stretch of life's road together.
Please contact me for a FREE 15 minute consultation to discuss your needs and how I can assist you in reaching those goals; for yourself and for your family.
I practice as a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC) under supervision with Charise Schwertfeger, LMFT (License #15133).
