My name is Mari Flatt and I have been working in mental health counseling for about five years. 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 Psychology from the University of North Dakota. I am currently licensed in Colorado, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
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 educated 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 most recently military and their families.
My counseling style is warm, empathic, 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.
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’s really sweet and super understanding when it comes to anything I’m dealing with. She gets back to me fairly quick and knows how to talk to me in a way that I can see and understand the situation from a different perspective to were it’s not as bad as I originally thought.
I have been in and out of therapy for most of my life. Every counselor has offered the exact same methods, goals, and hopeful outcomes. While I don't think my symptoms are unique, they are unique for me. Mary Flatt seemed to understand that almost instantly and we have been able to communicate what my primary goals are in therapy and I feel she respects those, she respects the boundaries I need.
Mari has given me so many ways to help myself control my anxiety and be able to turn the anxiety into motivation to get through it! I feel like she really cares for me and my concerns, and she has definitely opened up my eyes to self help and growth!
Mari has been amazing in every way. I strongly recommend her.
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.
Mari is very understanding and easy to talk to. She doesn't judge and makes me feel respected and my thoughts valued. She feels like a good friend I'm talking to. She also comes up with different ways to help me with my situation. I really appreciate her guidance.
