My Approach to Helping
My name is Olivia and I am passionate about helping individuals and couples process and manage mental health challenges in daily life.
I love to help others learn about mental health and develop the skills to effectively navigate daily life with tools in hand to face life's inevitable hardships. I seek to educate while also compassionately evaluating and providing support to process in order for clients to learn, grow and flourish. I strive to encourage clients to expand the capacity to which they understand their mental health in order to enhance control over their mental health.
I have years of experience working in acute psychiatric settings with both adolescents and adults, which has shaped my practice and enhanced my insight and knowledge into diverse mental health challenges. I enjoy working with both individuals, as well as couples, to identify problem(s), set goals, and create a plan to collaboratively meet these goals.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
If this is your first time considering therapy, I applaud your courage as this first step can often be the hardest! Just like any other health challenge, our mental health takes time and energy to heal and develop healthy ways of functioning. Spending time devoted to talking about challenges and hardships has been proven to enhance our ability to process our past and navigate future adversity. While sharing difficult information with a new therapist can be scary, know that meeting with the right therapist will offer a judgment-free zone and provide guidance and tools to help understand what you may be going through. I encourage you to take the first step and reach out to find out more information. I'd be happy to talk to you about what led you to seek out therapy and discuss ways to support you. You can send me an email or give me a call to learn more about my approach and schedule a consultation.
