Olivia (or "Olive") is a Pennsylvania transplant who stuck around after getting her MA in Rhetoric in Public Discourse. She's worked in a variety of fields in Missoula, most recently transitioning from adult case management into therapy. She is experienced in working with adults with severe disabling mental illnesses and she is passionate about Neurodiversity.
While her career has veered toward mental health, her love of rhetoric is still intertwined in her work every day. Olivia has several years experience developing strengths-based, person-centered, trauma-informed care framework. She is trained in a variety of evidence-based modalities, though she is most skilled at helping clients challenge their thoughts, find meaning, and look at the world from a new perspective.
In her free time, Olivia enjoys writing, cooking, eating, hiking, and digging into her special interests: movies, social movements, Neurodiversity, or whatever most recently grabbed her attention.
