Hi I’m a board-certified  psychologist with a private practice in San Francisco and Burlingame. I have 15+ years clinical experience in working with children, adolescents and adults in Bay Area. I provide customized and evidence-based treatment for each client. 

Along with my private practice, I've worked with both children, teens and adults in a variety of settings including community mental health centers, family homeless shelters, elementary schools, a hospital, and universities. I started my private practice (Dr. Akira Olsen Psychologist Inc.) in San Francisco since 2010. 

Currently, I'm also a clinical supervisor/faculty at Palo Alto University's Gronowski Center. I specialize in treating anxiety, stress, trauma, attention, emotional, family /Relationship issues. I also help my clients to improve motivation and find meaning and purpose in life.  

Through my clinical practice, teaching, consulting, and writing, I provide an integrative and holistic approach for healing and growth. 

I am trained in psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, biological, and play therapy methods, Child/Adolescent Psychology and Psycho-spiritual development. 

I also had intensive trainings of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Level I &II, Neuropsychological assessment, and Emotion focused therapy. 

I conduct in-depth assessments to determine the right approach for each of my clients. My working style is collaborative, empathic, problem-solving, and evidence-based. 

With more than fifteen-years  experience in public and private practice, I’m committed to improving mental health and personal growth for my clients and community.  I’m also bilingual, speaking fluent Japanese. I provide culturally sensitive treatment to my clients from diverse backgrounds.

Are you someone who has suffered from an emotional trauma?

Trauma can manifest itself in many forms and can be the result of direct attacks on a person or simply witnessing another being subjected to violence.

  • The different types of trauma
  • The aftermath and how it affects you
  • The relationship between trauma and addiction
  • Symptoms of PTSD
  • Ways to assist the healing of trauma
  • Mindfulness and meditation and how they can help
  • And much more…

This book is perfect for beginners to trauma, as well as mental health professionals, and provides an in-depth assessment that will help anyone who has encountered trauma in their lives, how they can face it and then deal with the problems it can cause.
