Meet Kalene

Hi, I’m Kalene Sharstrom. I am a licensed associate marriage and family therapist from Moorhead, MN. I grew up in central Minnesota and moved to the Fargo-Moorhead area about 10 years ago to pursue my undergraduate degree at Concordia College in Moorhead. I decided to stay in the area following graduation and completed my graduate studies at North Dakota State University (NDSU). I love the Fargo-Moorhead Community and have enjoyed making it my home!

My style of therapy is collaborative and client-focused. I work with clients to identify solutions, channel strengths and navigate barriers to help improve their overall quality of life. I have worked with a diverse range of patient needs and identities and am an LGBT-affirmative therapist.

Much of my clinical experience has focused on providing care to adolescents who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, peer relationships, bullying, family conflict, and navigating life events. I have also provided these services for adults in addition to pre-marital counseling, couples therapy, and parenting support.

If you would like to discuss your therapy options or schedule an initial assessment, please email me at kalene@colerhansontherapy.com or call 701-353-5336
