Rebel Gustafson

Life is full of twists and turns. Sometimes no amount of training can prepare you for what comes. When you find yourself overwhelmed and confused, it can be useful to talk things through with a neutral person who can help organize your thoughts, explore your feelings, and work collaboratively to create solutions and next steps.

With practice and experience, most clients find they are able to relax, find the relief they need, and begin a new journey of growth and healing that greatly improves their life and well being. Together we can help you find the peace of mind you deserve.

Put yourself first and take the first step down a path of growth and change. Most people find therapy a deep and meaningful experience that helps that in ways they never could have imagined. Together we can accomplish your goals.

I work with families and individuals. I have experience with depression, bipolar disorder, traumatic experiences, grief and loss issues, low self-esteem anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and stress management.
