Intern

Olivia believes that the therapeutic relationship can be one of the most healing experiences in life. She views therapy as a means to connect with our deepest selves, to name and process our experiences, and to learn to trust our intuition. Through a warm and supportive approach, Olivia will guide you toward a place of radical acceptance. Her practice embraces slowing down, cultivating mindfulness in the body, and sitting with the big feelings.

 

As a therapist, Olivia strives to create a space that feels safe to go deep. Olivia has experience in crisis and trauma work, and embraces a therapeutic lens that is anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, and attentive to social location. Her areas of interest include identity, sexuality, kink, and relationship styles.
