Mari Flatt

LCMHC, LPC

About Me

My name is Mari Flatt and I have been working in mental health counseling for about eight years (two years while in Graduate School). I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from North Dakota State University and I received my Master's degree in Counseling from the University of North Dakota. I am currently licensed in Colorado (LPC), North Carolina (LCMHC), and Tennessee (LPC).
During my time in this profession, I have worked with many individuals struggling with a wide variety of issues such as; depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress management, grief/loss, ADHD, relationship discord, family conflict, and trauma. When working with someone on an issue that I may not be very familiar with, I educate myself on the topic so I can provide the best level of care. I have worked a good deal with children, trauma victims (specifically domestic violence and sexual assault), and couples. I have worked with military members and their families for four years. With this work along with being a military spouse myself and a former police officer, I have a unique understanding of the culture and stressors for first responders/military.
My counseling style is warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental. I believe in meeting clients where they are regardless of success or set-backs and celebrating those small victories and providing encouragement along the way. My counseling approach combines person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, and solution focused techniques. I will, however, tailor my counseling approach to meet your specific needs.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, two daughters, and Husky. I love going to sporting events, concerts, running half marathons, and watching/reading true crime.
Getting started is a big step and can sometimes seem overwhelming, but I am here to provide you support and motivation along the way! I look forward to working with you on a healthier YOU!

Mari has been fantastic to work with so far. I am new to therapy and so I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am to be working with her. She listens and doesn’t make you feel you are being studied. She is real, and very kind. Work with her will be a wise choice for anyone considering getting help,

Written on Dec 27, 2021 after therapy with Mari for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and career difficulties

I’ve been working with Mari for quite some time now, I believe I first signed up April/May 2021. Her help has been instrumental in the progress I’ve made this year. I feel so lucky to have been partnered with a therapist that allowed me to communicate on my terms and was always responsive and helpful. My life has been in a really great place for the last few months, so I haven’t written as often but she still provides the same excellent service every time. I highly recommend Mari Flatt and BetterHelp!

Fits what my needs and wants are in a therapist. Being able to communicate if and when I need help, but not feeling confined to a set schedule has been helpful. She seems in tune with what my concerns are and I'm excited to continue to work with Mari.

Written on Jun 01, 2020 after therapy with Mari for 2 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and grief

My confidence in Mari has been strong right from the start. I had some doubts about online counseling itself, but it has been really positive and she has helped me move forward in a kind supportive manner. Mari has helped so much with her experience and knowledge of abuse scenarios and opened the ground for me to open up and deal with the fallout from an abusive relationship. She is a really good practitioner.

Written on Mar 08, 2019 after therapy with Mari for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

Mari isn't what I was expecting finding a counselor online. She is able to clearly communicate in a way that makes you feel like you can share without the harshness of face to face or trying to schedule in a session in your daily chaos. I am working with her in a variety of areas and have definitely felt supported the entire time. Highly recommended.
