Professional statement

Olivia Rios is a Licensed Psychologist providing individual therapy in Colorado. Many of her clients are finding their footing in adult transitions and milestones, like balancing professional and personal demands, navigating family roles, or relationships with peers and authority figures. Olivia is particularly passionate about serving Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) who are impacted by the current sociological climate. She is trained to provide EMDR and services in Spanish.

Olivia’s approach is rooted in Feminist Therapy and Interpersonal Process Therapy. She employs Feminist Therapy beyond its traditional use with women, utilizing it in a broader sense to bring awareness to issues of power across marginalized identities and the impact on mental health. From an Interpersonal Process perspective, she believes that relationships and community are an essential part of our healing as human beings, and centers the therapeutic relationship in the healing process.

Her style is warm, supportive, and collaborative with just the right balance between listening and offering guidance. She is gently challenging when opportunities for growth arise, both in session and beyond. Her goal is for clients to finish therapy with greater clarity, increased connection, a mastery of coping tools, and feeling more confident to take on the difficulties ahead.

Olivia is deeply committed to fostering an inclusive and affirming space for clients who hold marginalized identities. She has worked at various universities serving BIPOC students, faculty, and staff. She is passionate about helping folx find their voice and strength as they navigate oppressive and disempowering environments and situations.

Olivia offers the accessibility of remote therapy sessions. She also offers Walk & Talk sessions in the Loveland, Longmont, and Boulder area. She is eager to support the wellness of all individuals and welcomes new clients.


Message to clients

It takes courage to shine a light on what isn’t working in your life, and even more so to take steps to change that. To make matters worse, you may be feeling like no one understands or that you *should* be able to deal with it on your own, which inevitably gets in the way of reaching out. Indeed, that first step is always the hardest, but you don't have to do it alone. My commitment to you is to hold a safe and affirming space where you can process the painful and difficult parts of your life, and to always be in your corner. I would be honored to walk this path of exploration, healing, and growth with you.
