Krista Olson psychotherapy for you

Krista Olson

B.A., B.S.W., M.S.W.
Registered Social Worker

Welcome. I am so glad you are here.

I am Krista Olson, Registered Social Worker, and proud member of the Psychotherapy for You team. I honor the courage and vulnerability it takes to ask for help and to truly look at ourselves. It is a privilege to hold safe, meaningful space and collaborate with clients in the
often delicate process of self exploration, experiential healing, and growth. I would love the opportunity to join you on your journey.
I have always been fascinated by the “why” underlying human behavior and from a very young age felt a natural inclination to listen closely and understand people on a deep level. This instinct led me to complete my graduate Social Work education and expanded into my
dream career of being a Psychotherapist firmly grounded in authenticity and intentional presence. From many years of human services work in a beloved First Nations community to decades of experience in the field of mental health and addictions, I am a forever learner and lover of all life adventures. My clients describe me as authentic, safe, insightful, present, grounded, deeply intuitive,
non judgmental, honest, open hearted and someone who “walks their talk”. That therapist whom you can journey through challenging experiences with and have a good laugh along the way.
I believe that each one of us can be fulfilled in our lives. Our individual healing journeys are unique and sacred to who we are. I take the time to get to know you, your values, your experiences, and your goals. I will meet you where you are and support you in taking meaningful action towards discovering your own path. I believe a well lived life embraces all the experiences we encounter on this life journey. If you are ready to explore what is getting in your way and figure out what to do next, it would be my honor to assist. Outside of work, I love to be in nature, wa(o)ndering harmoniously with my sweet cocker spaniel at our cabin in the woods, reading, practicing yoga, swimming, sipping tea by the fire, gardening and deeply nourishing my relationships with self and loved ones.

And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself? ~Rumi
