Overcoming Blocked Care: What to Do WhenYou Run Out of Compassion (Wed 10am-4pm)
Olivia Dahlin is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and TBRI Practitioner. She brings more than 15 years of experience working in the field of mental health services. For 14 years she has served and managed a Mental Health Treatment program for students in Alternative Education settings. Her years serving adolescents, often struggling with substance abuse, and involved in the juvenile justice system, has given her a greater awareness and sensitivity of systemic oppression on marginalized groups. These experiences have also shaped the framework and lens of cultural humility and empathy from which she operates. Olivia has extensive training and experience working in the areas of Stress & Trauma, Grief & Loss, Depression, Anxiety, and Behavioral concerns, as well as experience in adoption and attachment.
Focus in the areas of child adolescent mental health treatment services using Gestalt therapy, Play therapy, Mindfulness, and Trauma Treatment such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), and Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). Supervision and training of associates and trainees in AMFT, APCC, ASW. Training presentations for educators, law enforcement, practitioners and medical professionals in mental health, suicide prevention and trauma informed care.
“One of my greatest joys is working with children, teenagers and young adults as they journey through development and find out who they are meant to be. Each of our healing journeys are unique and require us to look at patterns, beliefs or behaviors that are getting in the way of thriving. There is often very little choice outside of awareness, and with awareness and choice we can then develop responsibility. The more aware we are as parents, educators, medical/mental health providers and loved ones of those who have been impacted by trauma, the greater source of healing and support we can be.”
