Hans Olson, MA, LAMFT

Functional Family Therapy Practitioner

“There are many ways.” I am a relational therapist and feel that all behavior and communication serves a function to get needs met. Our job is to work together to find healthier ways to reach those goals. I strive to create space in which this can happen. I use the connections I form with each client and their family to collaboratively shape my intervention and our therapeutic path.
