About Ryan Knutson


Ryan Knutson is an outpatient counselor with Stein Counseling & Consulting Services, Ltd. He received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 2011. In 2014, he obtained a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling, specializing in Addiction Counseling, from Viterbo University.  He is a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), and Clinical Supervisor-In Training (CS-IT).

Prior to Stein, Ryan worked for the correctional system and an outpatient setting, providing individual and group counseling. He has experience working with a variety of populations and issues including: those court-ordered for treatment, those with both mental health and addiction issues, teenagers in day treatment and group home settings, and individuals struggling with severe mental illness.     

Through various unique life experiences, Ryan became interested in being a counselor. These experiences allow him to have a different level of understanding when working with clients. While versed in numerous therapeutic approaches, Ryan thinks counseling should seem like just a helpful conversation. He believes clients are experts on their own lives and simply sometimes need help seeing or thinking about things differently.
