Nathan Hansen, LPC

No matter your professional or life perspective, our greatest challenge tends to be ourselves. Living in complacency, our mindset often overlooks solutions to moving forward and dwells on the "what-ifs" of tomorrow. You want to progress and be the best you. Have you ever considered working with someone to find this path? Someone who listens, and develops a relationship built on trust and care where you can investigate and change your perspective? We all need to work on overcoming roadblocks in life, but a lot of us are too afraid or don't know where to start. Why not start now by picking up the phone?

My specialties include:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma

  • Sport-Performance
