Bio

Octavia is a respectful, empathetic, compassionate, and plant-loving provider who will show up for her clients authentically and with bright smile!

Octavia takes a trauma-informed approach to her practice and is a pre-licensed practitioner pursuing her LPCC. Octavia uses person-centered techniques, motivational interviewing strategies, and CBT approaches. She enjoys working with all clients, but is especially invested in working with clients of color; especially clients who identify as Black/African-American/African and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Octavia has experience working with multiple age groups including kiddos, at-risk youth and middle-aged adults. She also has experience working with at-risk youth as well as clients of color and those who identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ community, in particular.

Octavia believes therapy should not be a daunting experience and strives to make it worth your while. With change comes work, but why can’t there be some fun thrown in there along the way? She offers a safe and supportive environment for clients to become the best version of themselves.

Octavia is eager to meet you where you are and walk alongside you in your journey. So, if you appreciate realness, and a challenge, Octavia is your girl 🙂
