About Geoffrey Olsen

I have been working in mental health in various settings for the past five years. I began my career at the Utah State Hospital, working in inpatient units, before pursuing wilderness therapy as a guide. After wilderness, I worked in a residential treatment center for young adults until I eventually found myself back in a hospital setting at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute. I am currently completing the third year of my Master’s degree in the clinical mental health counseling program at the University of Utah.

As a clinician I strive to help clients address the roots of their struggles and find effective interventions to alleviate the stresses inherent to their situations in self-efficacious ways. My work with a variety of clinical populations and settings provide valuable experience which informs my work as a counselor.

Outside of therapy, I am an avid outdoorsman. I like to snowboard, rock climb, hike, and camp. If I can’t get outside, I like to read fiction, make electronic music, play the guitar, play video games, or spend time with my friends.
