About My Clients
I hope to relieve psychological pain and build a future that excites and motivates you. Together, we examine the patterns which have emerged in your life, work to understand their origin, and shift the patterns you no longer find helpful.
My Background and Approach
Dr. Olivia Carelli earned her Psy.D. and M.S. in Clinical Psychology at Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Carelli primarily treats teenagers, adults, and families experiencing depression, anxiety, OCD, complex trauma/dissociation, eating disorders, borderline personality disorder, suicidality, self-harm, substance abuse, and bipolar disorder. Dr. Carelli practices from a relational model and often uses emotion-focused and person-centered interventions. She also incorporates more concrete skills, including the Unified Treatment Protocol, DBT, and CBT. However, she knows that trust and the therapeutic relationship are the most important aspects of healing. When treating teenagers, Dr. Carelli focuses on helping them develop emotional awareness and emphasizes building self-esteem.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
