“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” Maya Angelou
I am Olivia Adams from Richmond, Virginia, and I am invested in transforming lives. Change can be a challenge and it can be uncomfortable to feel vulnerable; however, I am proud to say that I have had the pleasure and privilege to witness and be a part of vast transformations of numerous lives over the past 15 years.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), I have assisted many men and women with rehabilitation from addiction, incarcerations, mental illness, and trauma. I majored in Rehabilitation Counseling and Psychology with a minor in Substance abuse, which has enabled me to have a broad perspective and a wide scope in being an effective helping professional.
The therapeutic approaches that I find most effective are Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. Although those have been found to be most effective in my experience of counseling, I am not limited to those approaches, as I embrace the philosophy “To meet you where you are.” With that being said, my goal is to be supportive and empathetic with open and honest communication to reach the personal goals of my clients. I have had the privilege to be trained in various therapeutic approaches; therefore, will utilize whichever approach deems most effective to meet my clients’ needs.
Overall, my hope is to work WITH you and to support you in making radical changes to achieve YOUR transformation.
