Hey, I'm Olivia! Are you ready to laugh, cry and create a connection with someone who is not going to give you cookie-cutter responses? Then keep reading. I am passionate about creating a safe space for my clients to throw it all out on the table, be met with compassion and validation and begin to piece together what they want to keep and what they want to toss. Many times in our lives, we put on certain identities and expectations that may not be ours but we keep them on out of comfort, fear, habit, you name it. I am here to help you sift through the pieces of you that you know but also become curious about the parts of yourself that you do not know. During that process, you can begin to find power in your choices and practice the art of being able to decide for yourself who it is you want to be. The stories you have come to believe about yourself are worth exploring and together, we can build a relationship where I will challenge those beliefs with you and assist you in building confidence to shift into your most authentic and understood self.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I focus on collaborating with you on a plan to build tools that are realistic for where you are at in your life. Together, we find ways to find clarity in your decisions where you would often feel uncertain. We explore the patterns of behaviors that are no longer helping you, and remind you of your power to change.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I prefer to utilize more of an eclectic style but gravitate towards Reality Therapy which is based on choice and implementing humor. I also pick from attachment since don't we all want to blame our parents for our messes?

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I love working with preteens, teens and adults to help them find their voice. I have worked with clients for years and have found that my biggest strength has been to humanize our experience. I am no different than you with my own set of challenges and I believe that my clients have appreciated my down-to-earth presence. Based on that, teenagers and new moms typically flock to me. I pride myself on not being too uptight, which helps the client feel at ease and comfortable being their most messy self.
