In particular, Olivia is helping Innovative Express Care address our patients with anxiety, PTSD, minor depression, and ADHD. She also specializes in trauma, mood disorders, family and relationship difficulties, and women’s issues.
Olivia utilizes a flexible, eclectic and integrative approach that draws upon mindfulness, client-centered, relational / psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavioral (DBT) and ego state therapies. She is also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a holistic, mind-body approach that is evidence-based and very effective for treating past trauma, as well as many other mental health disorders and concerns.
Olivia tailors her evaluation and interventions to help each client authentically explore and express their innermost thoughts, feelings and desires, at their own pace, while offering gentle guidance, coaching, warmth, humor, empathy and compassion.
Olivia strives to create a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic space that allows the client to identify and work towards their own personal goals, gain increased insight and self-awareness, develop coping skills and strategies to better tackle life’s problems, in order to achieve balance in all realms, mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, relational and professional.
