Psychologist and Therapist in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey Margaret Olave, PhD

Margaret Olave, PhD

Educational Background: I earned my Doctorate in Forensic Psychology from Alliant International University in Fresno, California. Throughout my graduate program, internships, and life experiences I have been exposed to an array of clinical populations. I have worked with the severe and persistent mentally ill, adults with developmental delays, severe personality disorders, chronic and persistent substance abuse and with a forensic population. I have years of experience conducting group and individual therapy. I have extensive training in Motivational Interviewing, Violence Risk Assessment, Trauma Informed Care, Cognitive Behavioral Interventions, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

Therapeutic Approach: I am a firm believer that our past affects us, but it does not define us. My therapeutic approach is designed to understand where you come from while helping you work toward your future goals. I utilize various therapeutic techniques to engage my clients toward change and an insight-oriented lifepath. I strive to develop a strong therapeutic alliance with all my clients based on trustworthiness and transparency.

In my free time, I am busy enjoying time with my family and friends. I enjoy running, listening to music and I listen to various podcasts. I love animals, especially giraffes, and enjoy spending time outdoors.
