About Me

Welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Olga Maxwell and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Georgia as well as Nationally Certified Counselor. I am local to Columbus, GA. I graduated with honors from Troy University in 2015 with my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a recipient of the Intensive Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Schizophrenia Certification from the Aaron T. Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I have 7 years of clinical experience working in a variety of clinical and leadership roles in the community mental health setting. I am specifically trained in treatment of Severe and Persistent Mental Illness, such as Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorders, and very skilled in treating Anxiety and Depression Disorders. I have been trained in Hypno-counting, which is a hypnotherapy method for treating discrete trauma and aspire to complete my training in hypnotherapy in the next few years.

I am truly passionate in helping people overcome obstacles and figure out how to live their best lives.
I believe change is possible!
I believe in treating every client with dignity and respect.
I use Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), Solution-Focused (SFT) and Mindfulness approaches to therapy.

It takes courage to seek help and the first step is always the hardest! I'm honored to be considered to be your therapist. If you're ready to make a change, I'm here to help you set a goal and start working towards it!
