Osman Baar

MS
EAP Counselor
Fargo

I enjoy working with all ages, and I have worked with new Americans, refugees, seniors, and disabled people for the last four years. I enjoy using person-centered, DBT, and CBT techniques. In a person-centered approach, I believe the therapist is a facilitator in the therapeutic relationship where the client is the expert.

I enjoy working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, grief, unemployment, and work-related stress. I like working with diverse populations, and my deep understanding allows me to provide a level of care to minoritized people rarely seen in therapy. I speak English and Somali.

Since my childhood, I have always had empathy, and I still understand and share the feelings of others. I encourage and instill hope in my clients by translating their dialogue into goals that they can work towards resolving. I pride myself on providing culturally-competent therapy. Having gone through the process of settling in the US as a refugee, I have personal experience navigating systems and enjoy helping my clients connect with other needed services and providing therapy. I enjoy providing family-centered work and psychoeducation through a culturally appropriate lens. In my clinical training thus far, I have gained significant experience in helping clients overcome both internal and external barriers.

I graduated from Minnesota State University (MSUM) with a bachelor’s degree in Health Services Administration with an emphasis in Long-Term Care Administration. I also have a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
