Mental Health Provider of Individual Virtual Therapy

Meet Giovanna

Hi, my name is Giovanna (she/her). I’m a Therapist, Clinical Social Worker (LSWAIC), 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.

. Engage in mindful and somatic moments in session to strengthen your relationship with your emotional body and assist in the processing of emotions
