Why Olivia Became a Therapist

Tutoring adolescents has shown me that before individuals can meet the demands of work or school, their basic physical and emotional needs must be met. The systems that influence our lives rarely give us the time and space to regulate our emotions, make sense of what we want, and learn how to cope. I transitioned from tutoring to behavioral therapy, where I have been honored to serve families and individuals who are constantly asked to change themselves for the comfort of others. I have since moved to study clinical psychology in the hopes of understanding the emotional and cognitive needs of individuals who are often overlooked or placed under extreme stress. Now I see that our identities, families, communities, and cultures shape our goals, skills, and worldviews, and I am excited to empower individuals to navigate those influences.

How Olivia Lives Authentically

Honoring true self care, like mealtimes with family, hygiene routines, caring for pets, and contact with cherished friends.

Making lists and then celebrating when I can cross off things that are done.

Trying to view setbacks as opportunities to learn about myself.

Relying upon a support network when it’s difficult to think clearly.
