True North Counseling, LLC
True North Counseling was established in the tumultuous year of 2020, inspired by the idea to continually strive to be our best, authentic selves, especially during these challenging times amid a pandemic. I trust we all have an internal compass which guides us through our lives. My hope is that all who seek counseling leave my office feeling strengthened, empowered and inspired to live your unique purpose in life. Whether you are seeking help for yourself or your child, True North can guide you along your journey.
My name is Sally E. Hansen, MS, LIMHP. I received my Master of Science Degree in Community Counseling at the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2009. I have worked in community agencies, group home settings and private practice. My training and experience include working with children aged four and up, teenagers and men and women of all ages. I have extensive training and experience working with individuals addressing anxiety disorders, depression, anger management, trauma, family dynamics and childhood behaviors. I have taught classes for anger management and facilitated groups for children exposed to domestic violence.
I have specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT.) I am certified in Parent-Child-Interaction-Therapy (PCIT). I utilize techniques from Psychotherapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness strategies. Managing stress, increasing self-esteem, overcoming bullying issues, adjusting to life’s transitions, coping with grief and loss, improving parenting skills and building individual strengths are some of the topics commonly discussed in therapy. I am an LGBTQ ally.
During my free time, my family and I love to travel and discover new places. My hobbies include fishing, camping, reading, writing, playing volleyball, winning fantasy football : ) and enjoying music (80s and 90s preferably). I love being a parent to our two children who challenge us daily, keep us young and provide us with unexplainable joy.
