Olga takes a positive and empowering approach and has worked with individuals, couples, families and students of all ages. She also enjoys helping clients sort through interpersonal difficulties and work-life balance challenges, and to improve their personal performance in all areas of their lives. Olga believes that what once may have served an adaptive function in a stressful or traumatic environment can later transform into a limitation that confines one’s innate potential to thrive, connect and find balance. With an empathetic and non-judgmental approach she quickly establishes rapport and meets clients where they are at in their lives and their struggles to help them connect to their authentic selves and effectively challenge these limitations. Olga feels strongly about environmental sustainability and social justice and her personal interests comprise a rough combination of yoga, snowboarding and loosing herself in a good book while listening to metal music.
