    About Olivia

    Hi, I’m Olivia! I am committed to providing a safe, non-judgmental space for all people of all ages. My goal is to empower my clients to experience growth and help them remember that they are enough. 

    Therapy Approach

     I have focused most of my career in navigating trauma with individuals and families from many different backgrounds. I am passionate about not only helping individuals who have experienced trauma, but individuals who are experiencing any type of mental health crisis or transition in their life. I firmly believe in the power of a strong therapeutic relationship and that it is the foundation of counseling where trust and mutual understanding pave the way for positive change. My goal is to help my clients freely express their experiences, thoughts, and feelings with open and empathetic dialogue. Each therapy session is an opportunity for growth and a better understanding of yourself.

    I have experience working with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress syndrome, life transitions, perfectionism, conflict resolution, poor body image, low self-esteem, workplace stress, grief and loss, and peer and relationship issues. I integrate cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and trauma informed care in my practice. My goal is to end the stigma surrounding mental health support and empower my clients to feel confident in themselves and their lives. I hold my Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) license in the state of Louisiana. I am also National Certified Counselor (NCC), as well as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). 

    Therapy is the first step to cultivating meaningful change in your life. If you are ready to face that change, no matter what led you here, I am looking forward to being with you each step of the way. 

    Education and Training 

    I received my Bachelors degree in Child and Family Studies from Baylor University and my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) as well as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). These two models of counseling are highly regarded in the field of trauma work.
