I ally myself with all that I resist and thus become whole.
Everything in your life is medicine. Everything is an invitation.
Any symptom or discomfort- illness, fatigue, despair, limiting beliefs, dissociation, menstrual issues, high-conflict relationships, trauma, etc, etc- shines light on the places within us that need our attention.
We’re conditioned to look for happiness is in the opposite direction from discomfort- to eliminate, ignore, silence or avoid our pain. These temporary solutions only create more problems in the long run.
But when we accept our struggles as an invitation to growth, then we find that our happiness isn’t in the other direction, but on the other side.
My work is to help you through.
Private sessions are where we can dive deep, centering whatever you’re experiencing at the moment or whatever goals you’re working towards and building out from there. Whatever the nature of your challenges, we’ll look at them holistically, through the lens of your physical, psychological, and relational experiences (otherwise known as symptoms). By breaking down the boundaries between these different categories of wellness, we restore you to wholeness.
Many of my clients gravitate toward conversational sessions (talk therapy)- sometimes to revisit formative experiences, more often to lay bare what’s coming up in the present, trace those roots back to the beliefs and experiences they’re tethered to, and then pick apart the tangles. My perspective is truly unique and sheds a very different light on things they’ve been struggling to understand.
Other clients want to work from a more body-oriented place. For them I offer somatic practices, art therapy, plant meditations, guided meditations, parts therapy, womb healing, homework like journaling or qigong, and more.
Of course, this is your journey and I love nothing more than to work with you to tailor my support to your evolving needs!
I believe we’re at a transitional point in history where people
are recognizing that modern societies have abandoned many of the fundamental elements required for optimal human mental health.

Freedom of Speech
I’m an empathetic listener. My role is not to judge, police, or change your views, but to hold them as one aspect of you that helps me to better understand the whole. I aim to model the acceptance that I want to see more of in the world.
Freedom of Emotion
One of my pet peeves is when therapists ask you what you’re feeling and then suggest that you’re using the wrong word, that that’s not really what you’re feeling, or that you should be feeling something different. Never! You’re the authority on you and I want to understand, not undermine.
Space Holding & Empowerment
Only you can heal yourself, only you can transform your life. I won’t take that away from you, As someone who knows this path well, I'll share my insight, while also empowering you to be your own best healer. Take what works for you and leave the rest.
Nature's Superior Wisdom
Nature is smarter than us in every way- her rhythms and complex sets of interwoven balances and counterbalances, in her astounding diversity. When we get blinded by our own cleverness we create problems. But there's no problem that can't be solved by watching and learning from Nature.
I've come to this work organically, a direct result of my life's path.
I've studied plant medicine and permaculture, learned from medicine women and midwives- but most of all, I've learned from my own experiences as a mother and abuse survivor, pulling myself up from very low lows without medication (I think there's a time and place when medication can be lifesaving and I don't shame anyone for choosing that) and finding beauty and humor even when life is incredibly painful.
Those are my credentials and I'm proud of them because they've allowed me to offer support that isn't available within the framework of the medical system.
But if you aren't comfortable working with someone without letters after their name,
then I'm not the person for you.
These are the ways of our ancient grandmothers,
the ancient ones who still live. These Wise Women are one with all life
as they tread the ever-changing spiral.
Every pain, every plant, every stone, every feeling, every problem is cherished as a teacher: not a teacher who grades, but a teacher who guides.
Night is loved for darkness and the stars. Day is loved for light and the sun. Uniqueness is our treasure, not normalcy. Our universe includes all;
it is both/ and, not either/ or.
This is a wise woman way the world round.

What Clients Say
I spent over a year researching and reaching out to mental health professionals in search of someone to talk with to work through some of the stuff I’m overcoming. I kept hitting road blocks and I should have taken them as a sign.
I realized that my values didn’t align with Western Medicine anyway and the answer I was seeking was in my insta feed the whole time!
I’ve been working with Olivia for over a season and it's been so helpful for better understanding myself and the relationships around me. I started with one of her classes where she demonstrated how much knowledge she has to share and her private sessions provide an opportunity to dive deep into the murky waters of the self.
She’s a safe harbor, I’m grateful that she has crossed my path and serves as my teacher during this phase of life.

She makes the simple and accessible profound and healing.
