Are you not necessarily in crisis, but just seem to be stuck right now? Do you struggle in your relationships, or have difficulty with change? Is your child or teen struggling and you don't know what else to do to help? Do you have a sense your challenges have become unmanageable and it might be time to speak to someone who can help you positively move forward in your life?
Who I Am
Hi, I’m Olivia. I am passionate about empowering you to win the battle over your negative thoughts, swaying emotions, and anxious feelings. Loss, change, stress, sadness and uncertainty are a natural and deeply painful part of being human. These are difficult times, and we can all benefit from compassionate support and encouragement to not just survive, but to thrive.
I believe you are here for a reason. It can be difficult to manage your feelings of stress, anger, anxiety, depression, loneliness, or sadness. I will provide a space where you can be open and honest with me, and yourself, while you change, grow, and heal from the circumstances that have become challenging to overcome.
How We'll Work Together
We will start by making sure you are comfortable as you begin to tell your story. I will provide you with a compassionate, safe place for you to feel heard, understood, and fully supported. We will work together to explore the difficulties you are having, clarify your values and strengths, and get acquainted with your ways of coping. We will look at the impact this has on your life, without judgement, and identify positive solutions and opportunities for change.
I will provide you with skills, insight, tools and motivation to help you navigate the barriers that prevent you from living in accordance with your values. We will focus on building upon your strengths and protective factors that increase connection, coping, resilience, well-being, and hope.
I work with individually with adults, as well as couples seeking marriage, relationship and divorce counseling. I also work with struggling teens and pre-teens, age 10 and up. I offer a free consultation to answer your questions and to make sure you feel comfortable that I am the right fit for you or your child or teen.
