I'm so glad that you are reaching out for help! I believe with all my heart that there is hope, and purpose and healing from pain. I am a Licensed Addictions counselor in South Dakota, and a Licensed Professional Mental Health Counselor in South Dakota and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Iowa. I have been practicing for over 28 years working with adults and adolescents struggling with addictions and mental health issues. This is a judgement free zone! I am a Chrisitan counselor with a passion for hope and healing through the love of God and evidenced based strategies. I am experienced in 12 Step therapies, DBT and CBT. I approach counseling from an existential and spiritual perspective. We will work together to create a plan to best meet your needs and walk through the healing journey together. You are not alone!
Together we can explore God's Word and what it says about you and the situation you are in! Nothing surprises God and He has a purpose and plan for you!!
As for scheduling, I do not put all my open slots through self-scheduling. I am able to accommodate more than is posted. I have limited availability on nights and weekends, but am not opposed to making something work for you when you are willing to fully engage in the therapy process.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Christy Alten-Osmera. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
My time with Christy was quite short but I will say that she is professional and personable. She listened, assessed and had a game plan in place in one visit. She obviosly has a depth of knowledge and her skills as a therapist are deeply honed. I wouldn’t think twice about recommending her.
