Melody Olson, MA
Hello, I'm Melody Olson (She/Her), and I understand the unique challenges that empaths, neurodivergent individuals, those who are twice-exceptional, and creative spirits, especially musicians, often face. If you're an empath, the overwhelming nature of the world might be a familiar struggle. As a neurodivergent individual, navigating a world designed for neurotypical experiences can be challenging. If you're twice-exceptional, you likely embrace exceptional strengths alongside distinctive challenges. For creative souls, particularly musicians, finding solace and understanding in a world that may not fully resonate with your vibrant inner world can be a difficult experience.
My own journey into therapy was fueled by a deep belief in its transformative power. Having earned my MA in Psychology and currently pursuing my LPCC, I am on the path to becoming a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. Under the guidance of Mary Wandrei, PhD, LP, I am dedicated to providing a supportive and collaborative space for individuals and parents alike.

I believe in the inherent goodness within everyone and the profound impact of finding meaning in life. As a therapist, I aim to help individuals and parents navigate the complexities of their unique journeys.
Your Unique Journey
If you're a parent raising an empathetic and creative child or teen, or if you have a neurodivergent child navigating their unique strengths and challenges, my approach is crafted to address your specific needs. As a parent seeking therapy, rest assured that my practice is designed to create a therapeutic space where both you and your child feel seen, heard, and understood.
If you are a creative individual seeking support for your artistic journey or someone on a path of spiritual exploration, my therapeutic approach extends to embrace the distinct dimensions of your experience. Together, we navigate the intricacies of your unique journey, fostering growth, understanding, and positive transformation.
In therapy, I integrate cognitive-behavioral therapy, emotionally focused therapy, somatic experiencing, play, music, art and mindfulness-based practices. Our collaborative and nonjudgmental partnership is tailored to explore new ways of thinking, feeling and approaching problems that have held you or your child/teen back from realizing your/their full potential.
