Have you ever felt like your life is out of control? Do you have difficulty making decisions . . . maybe it feels like others are making decisions for you?

Nathan Hansen, LPC

No matter your professional or personal perspective, your greatest challenge in life is often yourself. We often overlook realistic solutions to overcoming past hurts, improving relationships, or achieving personal growth. We get caught up in the “what-ifs” of the present and fail to make the meaningful change we need for wellness and success.

You want to be the best “you,” right? It may be the perfect time to partner with someone who actively listens and develops a relationship built on trust and care – one where you can investigate your beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors. We all need to work on overcoming roadblocks in life, but unfortunately, we’re often afraid or don’t know where to start.

I believe that you can improve your life and make meaningful change. I believe that you can achieve new goals. I believe that you can improve your relationships and overcome past hurts. I have nearly a decade of experience providing professional support to adolescents and adults as a counselor, life coach, and athletic trainer. I also possess extensive experience helping athletes improve mental toughness and reach peak performance.

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Couples Counseling
  • Marriage Counseling
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Grief
  • Sport-Performance
  • Performance Anxiety
  • FLOW
  • Self-Harm
  • Crisis
  • Life Coaching
  • School Issues
  • Self-Esteem Issues
  • Eating Disorders
  • Sexual Abuse

I graduated with my Masters in Clinical Counseling from Bellevue University. I use the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Techniques with an emphasis on Solution-Focused Therapy. I am also certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Crisis Counseling.
