Counseling with Gary Hanson was very literally a life changing experience. Gary served as a sounding board and graciously invited me into a process of expanding my perspective of my issues. Counseling provided affirmation that the challenges I was experiencing were difficult and should not be minimized by me or anyone else. Also, Gary provided tools that helped me outside of counseling sessions. Most of all, Gary was discerning and adept with the use of spiritual materials, so the integration of counseling and faith, which I requested, was seamless and provided hope. Gary was truly a conduit for God’s healing. I’ve referred multiple people to Hanson Associates and they too have been blessed by counseling with Gary and Joy.
