About Me

Hi, my name is Angie Olsen. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Clinical Practice, (LISW-CP,) I am licensed to practice in South Carolina. I have been practicing for 22 years.

My specialty is working with adults who suffered childhood trauma or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). Why? Because I am a survivor of childhood trauma. I developed my own program to help others to be able to go into the tunnel of pain and successfully make it into the light. If you are willing to do the work that I require, I can help you.

Types of childhood trauma or ACE:
Physical abuse
Sexual abuse
Bullying
Grief and loss
Divorce
Having a parent in prison
Witnessing violence
Physical neglect
Emotional neglect
Abandonment
Domestic violence
Mental illness
Substance abuse

If You Carry Your Childhood With You, You Will Never Become Older

Unresolved childhood trauma or ACE can cause:

Anger
Being emotionally unavailable or build up walls
Anxiety
Depression
Relationship issues
Substance abuse
Suicide thoughts or attempts

I received my Bachelor's degree in Health Science from the Medical University of South Carolina. This is the degree you earn when you fail organic chemistry twice. I received my Master's degree in Social Work from the University of South Carolina.

It’s worth whatever I’m paying almost to talk to this lady every week. I enjoy it and look forward to it. Even when I’m not having a problem it is extremely helpful to be able to just talk with somebody that is not judge mental for an hour

I’ve had three sessions and really like her!

Work with me!
