Learn About Me and How I Can Help
Oli Soto, AM, LCSW
We are shaped by our life experiences and circumstances, by experiences that we welcome and by those we do not. And by circumstances within or outside of our control. The stresses of life sometimes have a positive impact: pushing us into action and helping us accomplish our goals.
However, during other times, the stresses of life have a negative impact: hampering our motivation, weighing us down, and making it difficult to recognize our self-worth, make decisions, or have successful relationships. Therapy can be helpful when stress becomes overwhelming or when the things we rely on to cope no longer work for us.
You Don’t Have to Face Your Struggles Alone, I Am Here to Help
My clinical approach is psychodynamic, strengths-based, and trauma-informed. But my first job is to create a safe space to listen and learn about you: What do you see as your strengths? What gives you hope and peace of mind? What are the things that matter most to you? Together, we will build a plan to help you navigate any challenging life experience. I will support you along your journey.
Get to Know A Little Bit More About Me
I am a psychotherapist with experience working with individuals, adults, children, and groups on issues related to depression, stress, anxiety, trauma, grief, and loss. I believe that psychotherapy is a gift to the self and should be accessible to all. Therapy is also a tool for personal growth, and I will guide you in applying what you learn in our sessions to your everyday life.
I am bilingual (English/Spanish) and bicultural. I have a background in working with family, marriage, caregivers, immigrants, gender identity, eating disorders, self-esteem, domestic and sexual abuse, work-related issues, aging, and life transitions. In addition, I respect and appreciate that for many of us, religion and spirituality are guiding forces in our lives. I am a licensed clinical social worker with a master’s degree from the University of Chicago, School of Social Service Administration.
