Liv Wolfenden

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

     Liv works with teens and adults from a trauma-informed, social justice-oriented, holistic perspective. She helps clients struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, body image, self-esteem, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), and ADHD. She also helps individuals exploring themselves in their sexuality, sexual orientation, relationship structure, and gender identity to live at ease with authenticity, peace, and liberation. She incorporates mindfulness and movement practices with clients and works from a strength-based, feminist, and person-centered approach. Liv helps clients 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.
     Liv deeply values the commitment clients make to themselves in therapy. Building a genuine therapeutic relationship and offering a warm environment to work on, for, and with yourself is her first priority. She welcomes all clients to feel empowered by the choice to seek help in their growth and healing. Liv identifies as a member of the LGBTQIAP+ community and as a polyamory/non-monogamy-affirming, sex worker-allied, and kink-affirming therapist. She believes that identity, values, and desires are to be nurtured and honored with expansion and free from shame. Feeling safe and supported to bring one’s truest and most raw self to a therapeutic environment encourages lifelong development. Liv cultivates the space for clients to move from positions of justification and explanation toward a life aligned with their whole and healed selves.
