Adolescents & Adults Therapist

Professional Background 

Hi, I’m Olympia, and I’m from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to counseling in the private practice realm, I interned at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in DC where I group counseled and provided psych education to patients on every unit who fell under the anti-social spectrum and other personality disorders.

I received a BA in English Language & Literature from Smith College and studied at Vassar College for my junior year away.  I taught English, Creative Writing and Visual Art at numerous private schools: The Packer Collegiate School, Northfield Mount Hermon School, The Loomis Chaffee School, Brooklyn Heights Montessori School, and Ross School.  I received my MFA in Creative Writing with a concentration in Teaching at American University.  While attending school, I finished writing a poetry book.  Upon graduation, I continued to teach as an Adjunct Professor of College Writing for four years.  Designing a writing curriculum on psychology content led me to create a psychology education channel on the Psychology, Anthropology and Philosophy of Romantic Love. 

Philosophy

I believe the path towards growth begins with a dream: the desire to reach your full potential.  Maybe you must heal.  Maybe you want to turn self-defeating beliefs into positive affirmations.  Maybe you are stuck in the same relational patterns.  Or maybe you want to undergo personality or character change.  Whatever it is, the way you tell your story with me can make all the difference in your journey towards self-actualization.

In our first session, we will uncover whether you need symptom relief or to work through interpersonal problems, maladaptive patterns to create adaptive behaviors, or deep-rooted problems. 

In the exploration stage and insight stage, I will work alongside you to tell your life narratives, and then I will use challenges to disrupt problematic narratives; finally, we will use interpretations to help you rewrite your narrative in a more productive light and to think about your concerns from different perspectives to take corrective action.  Thus, we will fine-tune your self-awareness and hone your insightfulness so that you are readily equipped to enhance yourself and ultimately your life.  Self-awareness is the first step towards change in one’s life. 

In the action stage, based on behavioral therapy, we will develop an integrated plan to achieve mental health expansion and wellness and overcome your obstacles—often combining the practices of Narrative, Cognitive Emotive, Internal Family Systems, Adlerian, Jungian (shadow work), and Existential Therapy.  I work specifically on anxiety, depression, attachment styles, life transitions, lack of purpose/meaning in life, family and relationship issues, obsessive love, ADHD and OCD.

I work under the supervision of Isabel Kirk, LPC
