Olivia Mark, LPC
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Creighton University in
2014. In 2019 I completed my Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health
Counseling from University of Nebraska Omaha.
I have worked in a university counseling center helping students address
life changes, identity development, trauma, anxiety, depression, and
relational issues. I have extensive experience with youth and families
through residential, outpatient, and in-home settings ranging from mild to
intensive severity of needs.
For the last two years I worked in a community mental health setting with
youth and families who have been impacted by complex trauma. I have
received specialized training in mindfulness, trauma informed yoga
interventions, trauma treatment, polyvagal theory, play therapy, somatic
interventions, LGBTQ inclusive care, and EMDR.
My passion is working with youth, adults, and families impacted by complex,
generational, and acute trauma. I believe that trauma can present itself in
myriad of distressing symptoms including but not limited to outbursts,
isolation, dissociation, difficulty in relationships, anxiety and fear, and
loss of self.
I use a whole-person, client-focused approach to work with clients to
regain a sense of self and autonomy in the healing process. I begin by
creating a safe environment and identifying the areas that bring the most
suffering or conflict. My foundational theories include attachment theory,
Trauma Systems Therapy, and existential. I use a variety of evidence-based
practices including EMDR, ego-states, CBT, mindfulness, and body-based
