Olson opens new counseling office in Ishpeming

ISHPEMING — Another counseling option opened up in downtown Ishpeming recently.

Paul Olson, LMSW, CAADC has opened a private counseling practice in the Gossard Building.

Olson has been a licensed master’s level social worker for over 14 years and is now providing services for adults 21 years old and older with mild to moderate mental health or substance abuse issues.

Highlights include:

Ability to bill Medicare and Medicaid, as well as private-pay.

Accessible location in the Gossard Building, downtown Ishpeming: elevator access to the third-floor office location, and accessible rest room facilities in the building

Telehealth options are also available

“I am most excited to offer services to Medicare clients,” Olson said, “because I know from previous counseling work that people who have Medicare as their primary insurance often have trouble finding a counselor. Working with the senior population has been an important part of my practice in the past and I look forward to continuing to serve them.”

Olson said he is continuing to add insurance providers and hopes to be working with Blue Cross Blue Shield and employee assistance programs soon.

To arrange counseling, Olson recommends contacting him directly at 906-290-7492 or visiting his web site at paulolsoncounseling.com.
