Barbara Olseen, LCSW
Hello, I am a therapist who has lived in Conifer for over 20 years. I currently
have a private practice in the Bailey/Conifer area. During my time as a
therapist working with young people I am continually amazed at what young people have to offer to their peers, family, community, and the world.
However as we reflect on the world that we are living in today we are facing
situations on an individual and social level that are much more complex and daunting than ever before. Values, norms, and social media are
constantly changing so that the solutions to today's problems can be very complicated and confusing. Trying to find peaceful resolutions around conflicts, using creativity to express oneself and be heard, and learning to live a life that is teaching us to grow and expand can be both exciting and frightening all at the same time.
I believe that therapy provides one with opportunities to stretch and challenge oneself in ways that maybe one did not envision being able to do. Join with me in exploring options and new ways of being present in the world when it can be so easy to hide away and lose oneself.
