child counseling

there is hope for the biggest of hurts


Angry outbursts, defiance, low self esteem, manipulation, trauma, depression, sexuality, behavioral concerns...

"Nearly 35 million U.S. children have experienced one or more types of childhood trauma."

Having worked domestically and internationally with children, Olivia has witnessed not only the need for child therapy but also educating parents on how to parent a child who has had trauma, anxiety, depression, sexuality or performance issues.

How do you handle a child who has  angry outbursts, defiant or unsure of their sexuality? What does it mean when your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, PTSD and/or ODD?

At Sunshine City Counseling, we utilize Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Trust-Based Relational Intervention Therapy to address all types of struggles. A lot of work can be done with just the child alone but we believe in treating the whole issue, not just a piece of it. We work really hard to provide psycho-education to the parent and the child in addition to treating the behaviors that are difficult to manage.

Your child is so much more than the trauma he/she has endured and the ways the past works itself out behaviorally.

Get your kid back to being a kid, again

I strongly recommend Olivia. She worked with my 12 year old daughter through some really challenging issues she was having... Olivia was absolutely fabulous. She was able to connect with my daughter on a very personal level, which was critical to get her to open up. Within the first few sessions, I saw my daughter make significant improvement and over the next few months, Olivia helped my daughter return to her “old happy self”. I would definitely recommend her to others...
