Considering therapy is a big step and here you are. Welcome.
Mental Health Provider of Virtual Individual Therapy
Hi, my name is Giovanna (she/her). I’m a Therapist, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), and owner of Ola Sol Therapy, PLLC. I’ve been in the field of social work since 2015 and have spent the last 4 years as a Mental Health Professional. I am a first-generation Chicana and a local to the Seattle Area. I am also an English speaking therapist only–I share this to say that I am proud of my Mexican heritage and there’s also the reality that parts of me have been severed from my culture, which includes my native tongue.
Are you looking for a therapist who can provide a warm and honest therapeutic space? A therapist who can utilize intuition, empathy, and clinical skills to provide an individualized experience? Do you want to let your armor down and set aside your mask to finally BREATHE? Lastly, are you open to incorporating mindfulness practices into your life and would like to receive guidance on this?
Individuals seeking this style of care can benefit from therapy services at Ola Sol Therapy. If you believe we can be a good fit for one another in your journey to healing and would like to explore the possibility of working together you can schedule a consultation now
