About My Clients

Dr. Olsen understands the complexities of sexual struggles and how they can consume your life. Because no two people are the same, he believes in thoroughly assessing for other co-occurring mental health difficulties that can fuel sexuality struggles. Moreover, he works to understand the underlying nature of the behaviors or concerns. Each client has their own story and unique struggles, Dr. Olsen will tailor treatment to address your specific concerns.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Hiding a secret sexual life can feel shameful and empty. Over time, you lose pieces of yourself and your relationships are put at risk. Taking accountability for the hurt your behaviors have caused and developing empathy for your hurt partner is an important part of the healing process. Dr. Olsen will help you acknowledge the true nature of the problem, regain stability, and repair the damage to your life.
