My Approach to Helping

⫷ONLINE AND PHONE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE⫸

Here are some common reasons people contact me:

-Nothing feels like it makes sense. You may be angry, frustrated, exhausted, or experiencing other emotional issues. You want to feel at home in your body and feel safe again. I can’t wave a magic wand and make your pain go away, but I can help you focus on your needs.

-It feels like no one ‘gets’ you which might be true because you’ve gone through something life-changing. It can be scary to talk about your experiences, but I offer talk therapy in addition to other types of therapy (such as Art Therapy and a trauma therapy called EMDR) that don’t require you to tell your whole story unless you want to.

-While there’s no ‘right’ way to heal, there are ways to help you decrease your suffering. I teach new skills and check-in on what works for you.

-You need help trusting yourself and hearing your intuition instead of second-guessing. I work with you to restore your relationship with yourself. You need reassurance that your experience and responses are valid and normal.

-You want to be able to focus on yourself again and all of the dreams you thought you lost along the way. You want to be able to think about your future and feel hopeful instead of constantly ruminating over what "couldshould" have happened differently.

-If you are not sure if I can help, send me an email, I’d love to talk: journeyinward@oliviaclear.com. I offer a free 20 minute phone call!

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Sometimes therapy is scary. As a client and now a therapist, I understand your feelings of being on the fence about going to therapy. At 13 years old, I had my own therapist. In my 20s I went back to therapy again. From a client's perspective sometimes we feel as if we can do it on our own. For me, it was hard for me to go to therapy. I was afraid of being seen as weak. I was also afraid to face my weaknesses and accept that I had flaws. I also battled with the thought that if I went to therapy or told someone that I would be labeled and stigmatized as crazy. I now know that my personal experiences with therapy and receiving support demonstrates that as a person I am human. That I, too am worthy of receiving support, being heard, and being given tools I need to get through difficult moments. That these flaws make me human and that I, too, can heal through sharing my story and opening up to another human being.

Practicing since 2011, I have been honored to work with many clients on a variety of different issues. I have worked with clients as young as 12 years old to 75 years old. I know that coming to a therapist takes courage. I salute you, admire you, and am honored you are choosing this journey of becoming your best self.

I see therapy as a way to gain clarity in your life. In addition, it is an investment to your marriage, career, family, and even school. Where ever you are in your journey, I am ready to meet you where you are in your life. I look forward to meeting you and providing you with daily tools you can use in your life as well as an objective perspective.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

1. Therapy is an investment to your current relationships, yourself, and your future. Your future self will thank you.
2. Trust the process
3. Honesty heals (be honest with yourself and with therapist)
4. Call yourself out (tell on yourself to your therapist)
5. Getting help demonstrates that you are courageous. This is an admirable and likable trait.
6. Therapy keeps you youthful, healthy, and attractive in personality and in your attitude.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

I do not label my clients. Yes, there are diagnoses such as anxiety, ADHDADD, depression, grief, borderline personality disorder, etc. However, with my approach, I see you as a person of value, worth, and not the problem or diagnosis. Yes, there are life stressors, family issues, or even job or school issues but there is also a solution and there is hope. On my end, I seek to listen, provide clarity, and support to my clients. In my experience, I have seen the therapeutic alliance of client and therapist working together to develop a relationship help to heal whatever was going on in their life. As a therapist, I seek to provide a nonjudgemental space where you can heal and a space you can freely talk about what is going on in your life.
