What You Can Expect

I am continually seeking to grow as a therapist and expand in my knowledge and capacity to care for the diverse people groups I serve. I approach my work with clients as a scaffolding experience of combining our knowledge, lived experiences and ability to navigate collaboratively with compassion, non-judgement, cultural awareness and empowerment. I work best with individuals and couples who lead with openness, curiosity and a true desire for personal growth. I feel most effective at working with those who have experienced infidelity/relationship ruptures and want to heal their partner and relationship, those who have experienced sexual assault/trauma, people who want to explore emotional stuck points related to sexuality and folx who want to broaden their sexual relationship with self or partner(s). “Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you; doesn’t mean you can, should or need to do it alone.” ~Lisa Olivera

My Story

With an Indian father and a Latvian mother, I was raised in an ethnically and culturally diverse family. Being a white-presenting biracial therapist, cultural awareness and cultural humility are values that are deeply meaningful to me and I cherish diversity and welcome all LGBTQIA+ identities and orientations to our therapeutic space. My previous career as a high school sexuality educator and my 26-year career as a fitness trainer, nutrition consultant and wellness coach inform the work I do as a therapist. As a single mom of three teenagers, I appreciate the constant juggle of navigating relationships and balancing the needs of others while prioritizing my own self-care.
