My name is Evan Hanson and I have been an active Marriage & Family Therapist for 30 years. I have owned my own clinic during those years and have worked in several western states. I completed my training at Reformed Theological Seminary receiving a national certification in MFT. My style of therapy is brief with a Solution Focused approach to solving relational problems. I believe people appreciate an active and direct approach to identifying the issues and then working toward real life solutions that allow you to move forward with your life. I also believe personally in therapy as I worked through some major personal challenges as a client early in my career.
My areas of specialty are working with men issues and helping parents who are raising boys. I have authored two books and hosted a podcast for raising boys.
Trained Mediator (Court appointed)
