Angie Olsen, LISW-CP, LAC, CACII
Question: Have you ever asked yourself, “Why do I keep the same type of people in my life over and over?”
The answer is, “Because you speak the same language.”
Angela “Angie” Olsen received her bachelor’s in health science from the Medical University of South Carolina and master’s in social work from the University of South Carolina. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Clinical Practice (LISW-CP), Licensed Addictions Counselor (LAC), and a Certified Addictions Counselor, level 2 (CACII). She brings many years of experience to New Hope Counseling and Wellness Center. She specializes in the treatment of adolescents and adults with substance use and abuse issues. She also brings much experience in working with adolescents and adults struggling with unresolved childhood trauma, relationship problems and co-dependent issues.
Angie says, “what happens to us in childhood determines who we become as adults.”
Angie’s philosophy of treatment is that no matter what you have done in your life, you still deserve to be treated with dignity, respect, and love. And if the people in your life do not do that, they don’t belong in your life.
I was trained by the late Dr. Albert Ellis in Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT). One of the reasons I have a deep regard for Dr. Ellis is because he believed that “because you are alive, your life has meaning.”
“If you want to know about my original question, come see me at The Saluda Center. To can break what you won’t talk about, so let’s have a conversation.”
