Olivia Wolfenden, M.Ed.

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

I help teens and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, body image, self-esteem, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), and ADHD as well as individuals exploring themselves in their sexuality, sexual orientation, relationship structure, and gender identity to live at ease with authenticity, peace, and liberation. Clients find the most powerful and congruent changes by pulling from their own values, beliefs, and strengths. I believe that we each have the right to explore and become our truest selves, and I hope to join you in creating and aligning with the changes and goals that you want.

I use a trauma-informed, social justice-oriented, person-centered, strength-based, holistic approach and incorporate mindfulness and movement practices to process past and present experiences, develop positive coping skills, enhance self-esteem and self-compassion, navigate life transitions, and explore barriers as well as pathways to holistic well-being.

I hold deep respect for the commitment that you are making to yourself through therapy. Building a genuine therapeutic relationship and offering a warm and open environment to work on, for, and with yourself is my first priority. I welcome all clients to feel empowered by their choice to seek help in your growth and healing.
