Hi I’m a board-certified clinical psychologist and mental wellness specialist with a private practice in San Francisco and Burlingame. 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. I specialize in treating anxiety, stress, trauma, attention, emotional issues, and motivation. 

I’ve worked with people with diverse backgrounds from all walks of life: children, students, parents, educators, politicians, CEOs, artists, other professionals, and more.  

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

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

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 seventeen-years experience in public and private practice, I’m committed to improving mental health and wellness for my clients and community. I’m also bilingual, speaking fluent Japanese. I’ve been active in communities by serving a board member and Diversity Chair for San Mateo County Psychological Association and mentoring psychology graduate students in local organizations for the past three years.
