About

Olivia has worked with clients of all ages with various levels of trauma experiences, narcissistic/ sexual/ physical abuse survivors, attachment difficulties, life transitions, codepedency, depression, anxiety, grief, and familial/peer relationship concerns. Practicing both personally and professionally from an anti-racist/ anti-oppressive lens and being LGBTQIA+ affirming, Olivia honors the intersectionalities of identities, lived experiences, and the ways in which these experiences are held in our bodies. She uses movement and expression to promote holistic healing that can aid with how these experiences show up in our bodies.
Olivia utilizes a somatosensory approach to therapy, and she also values feminist, psychodynamic, relational and multicultural theories that guide her framework of practice. Olivia prioritizes a strong therapeutic relationship and connection in her work, creating a safe space in therapy.
"A unique part of my practice is that I welcome somatosensory experiences into therapy – whether that be through breath work, yoga, dance, art, movement. My belief is that our bonds to trauma drive our subconscious, dating back to when we were infants & children. Tapping into those spaces to reparent and rewire our nervous systems is crucial to healing."
