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.

Philosophy

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.

Therapeutic Approach

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.

Join me on a Transformative Journey

Whether you're an individual seeking personal growth or a parent looking for support for your child or teen, together, we will embark on a transformative exploration of self-discovery, empowerment, and healing. I am here to help you navigate life's complexities, uncover innate strengths, and cultivate lasting positive change.

If you are seeking a nurturing and empathetic environment for your healing and personal growth, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. Please don't hesitate to reach out. Positive change is right around the corner!
