Clinical Psychotherapist



A Note From Olivia

“Reaching out to a therapist can be overwhelming, but finding someone you feel safe with can make all the difference in the journey. Many individuals hesitate toward the idea of opening up to someone new due to the trust and vulnerability it requires.

Fortunately, creating relationships is my passion and I truly believe the relationship between us is going to be the most impactful tool we have. My aim is to provide you with support and the necessary tools to navigate the ever moving pieces of daily life.

I utilize holistic, evidence-based, and trauma informed interventions throughout the therapeutic process. I strive to understand the various intersecting systems that inherently impact my clients and their care through a culturally-attuned lens. I am dedicated to providing my clients with a sense of safety, empowerment, and understanding as we work together in addressing individual needs.”
