Professional statement

Amity Olson is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Jacksonville, FL. Amity offers compassionate support to clients who struggle with the fallout after a traumatic experience. This includes one-off traumatic experiences like an accident, sudden death of a loved one, or difficult conflict. It can also include long-term trauma like abuse or chronic illness. Many of Amity’s clients turn to therapy to find relief from their anxiety, sadness, frustration, disappointment, or fear. Amity helps these clients reintegrate into their everyday routines and feel safe, whole, and joyful once more.

Amity uses a variety of evidence-based, trauma-informed therapeutic modalities with her clients. She teaches clients effective coping skills through Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). She also offers Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which assists the brain to remove painful memories from the forefront of the mind. She helps clients identify their motivations, values, and emotions as they process through their difficult experiences and look ahead towards their futures.

Amity earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Her practice environment is relaxed, affirming, and welcoming. Her goal is to help clients identify their goals for themselves and work towards those goals intentionally and with the right tools. She strives to help clients live authentically, without trauma holding them back.
