Empathia Counseling: Olga Lopez-Rangel, LSWAIC
I am a Social Worker Associate Independent Clinical License providing mental health therapy services and immigration evaluations to individual adults, children, and families. I have specialization with pre-teens and teens. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness.
I believe that therapy should be a safe space to the individual. I can create that for you when you want to start services with me. I have worked with trauma clients as well as clients with issues with anxiety, depression, PTSD. Mindfulness is said to be an ancient technique, I incorporate my practice with this technique and can teach you the tools.
Immigration evaluations and teen support are my passions. I enjoy working with people of all races, ethnicities and cultures, and I am passionate in advocating for social justice issues. I believe that when transgressions occur and cause trauma, one should have a place to find safety. I myself have Dyslexia and HSP (Highly Sensitive Personality), which have presented challenges in my life, but I have learned to use them as the gifts that they are. For example, being highly sensitive enables me to be an excellent empathetic listener, and my dyslexia sometimes allows me to see possibilities for growth that others might not.
