About Swede Siverson, M.Ed, LCPC
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Swede and his puppy
I am very passionate about helping people find their true path to healing and comfort in their lives. Having been a professional counselor for more than 20 years, I have had the honor of helping teens, adults, couples, and families in the process of breaking down barriers to allow them to live a life of freedom. I am trained in many types of counseling and apply the approach that works best for the person I am working with. My style is to be very present, caring, and interactive in the counseling process. I will listen to you, challenge you in a supportive manner, and seek to give insight when you are confused. This may mean helping you to heal from wounds of the past, deal with depression and anxiety, or helping couples communicate with more understanding and unity. I regularly see a noticeable improvement in the vast majority of the people that I work with and can help you. For people who are Christian-based, I do this by combining a Christian perspective with my training and effectiveness as a therapist to help my clients heal, grow, and thrive in their lives. I am also very adept at helping people from a non-Christian perspective and using a more traditional psychological approach while working within the person's belief system to help them make the changes they want. 

I do not work alone. I am also teamed up with my dog Chara. She is working on her therapy dog certification and has the sweetest most loving personality I have ever met. If you are having a tough time Chara is also there to comfort you and love on you.
"I have been seeing Swede for the last year after a very traumatic incident brought me to my knees. I prayed that I would find the right therapist quickly, and Swede was the answer to every prayer. Over the last year he has not only counseled me through the different (and very difficult) stages of grief, but he has shown me just how beautiful life can be throughout the process. He provides a safe place for all of my thoughts, fears, and doubts to be discussed with zero judgement. He’s helped me to not only live life, but at a pace that it can truly be enjoyed and appreciated. I’m so grateful for everything that he has done and continues to do. I will forever be in debt to Swede for the care he has provided."
