Alexis Olson, CSWC

As a graduate with a Master of Social Work, I now have over eight years of clinical and non-clinical experience working with families. I have explored, analyzed, and used effective interventions for families based on what I've experienced as a nanny, child behavior specialist, social worker, and mental health therapist. Additionally, I specialize in working with children and adolescents struggling with defiance, neuro-typical difficulties/differences, trauma, and general anxiety/depression. I also work with adults and I believe trust and rapport are the foundational elements that make a therapeutic journey successful.

Teletherapy (video or phone sessions) is a great alternative to in-person therapy if desired, and I would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty.
