Olivia is a dedicated, loyal and caring person who helps put others at ease and provides a safe space to help people explore and resolve their concerns. She enjoys creating and working with a support team for people where possible and is particularly passionate about helping children and families.
She recently moved back to Echuca to get back to her "country roots" as she grew up in Country Victoria (Macedon Ranges) and wants her young family to do the same. Starting her career in the mid 2000's she initially worked in the corporate space but realised it was not a good fit for her and made the decision over 10 years ago to leave that world in favour of working more in alignment with personal values including client centred, strengths based practice and working in a supportive community based environment with like minded individuals. Since then, her practice has become increasingly focussed on working with children and families. After completing her Masters of Educational and Developmental Psychology in 2011, she has worked almost exclusively in schools and community based agencies. She is particularly interested in assisting children with behavioural and learning difficulties to not only survive but to THRIVE and recognise and build on their strengths.
Olivia loves ballroom dancing, yoga, taking her dog for a walk and spending time with family and friends.
