Olivia Bower, MSEd, LPCC joined the Holistic family in May at the Clintonville office. Welcome Olivia. Olivia understands the difficulties that can come from changes in life or identity. She believes people can learn and heal from their past and present experiences to find new dreams for the future. Her role in this process guides clients to trust and listen to themselves for the next right step.
Using interventions to increase emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and self-compassion, Olivia’s approach to therapy is strengths-based and trauma-informed. Her current clinical interests are life transitions, anxiety, depression, gender and sexuality affirmation, and various forms of trauma, including religious and childhood trauma.
She comes to Holistic Consultation with experience in community mental health and bereavement. She has worked with a wide variety of issues at many life stages and in different settings, including schools, outpatient clinics, juvenile justice, and an equine center.
Olivia is a licensed professional clinical counselor with a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Ohio University.
