Hello Olivia, tell us about yourself
I am a trauma-informed transformational coach and the founder of Power To Thrive. I help women move past trauma, embody fierce self-love and confidence, and uncover their superpowers within to create the life they’ve always wanted. Through my experiences of abuse trauma and my healing journey incorporating trauma therapy, embodiment, mindfulness and self-actualization practices, I bring guidance and support to those who are frustrated with merely surviving and are ready to start thriving. I am also an advocate for human rights and animal rights and am working with a number of organizations and non-profits that support these various causes. I am currently a Board Member of the non-profit organization Survivor's Best Friend. I graduated from the George Washington University in 2013 with a B.A. in International Affairs and will be attending UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2021.
Why did you choose to be a sex therapist?
I had known I wanted to empower other women for as long as I can remember. It especially has been a focus of mine following my personal experience of abuse trauma, sexual trauma and friends who have been through the same. I wanted to ensure I had done the inner work of healing so that I was strong enough to act as a channel to serve others. Being a coach has been and is one of the most rewarding experiences - to see my clients heal, embody fierce self-love and confidence, and act on their previously perceived impossible dreams. We need more women who realize their true power and understand how unstoppable and impactful they are. That is why I do the work I do.
What are the most memorable moments of your work experience?
The most memorable moment from my work as a trauma-informed transformational coach is working with a client through her PTSD following sexual assault. Based in Egypt, she has now since created a safe space for women in the Arab world to share their sexual assault stories and seek help.
Do you have any advice to us women?
Healing is not linear, but it is about the bravery and courage to embark on the journey, knowing that the life you deserve is waiting for you on the other side. In building a strong relationship with yourself through exploration and compassion, you will not only find and reclaim your sexual confidence but find empowerment in all aspects of your life.
