Heather Olivieri MSW, RSW has been practicing social work for over 18 years. She has experience in a variety of settings including children’s mental health, schools, the criminal justice system and pediatric healthcare. Heather has extensive experience in supporting neurodiverse children & youth including those experiencing emotional dysregulation, social and behavioural concerns, chronic illness and pain.
Heather incorporates Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and narrative approaches into her practice. She has a particular interest in Single Session Therapy (SST) and has experience in establishing single session counseling clinics in other settings. SST offers a focused consultation on a current problem or concern that is facing children, youth and their families. The client/s and therapist work together to explore values, priorities, strengths and skills and generate new ideas for coping moving forward. SST is a “one session at a time model” assuming that one session can be helpful and often sufficient in helping move children and families towards goals and preferred directions in their lives.
Heather received her Bachelor of Social Work from Ryerson University (now Toronto Metropolitan University) and completed her Master of Social Work at the University of Toronto. She is registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). She also holds a Diploma in Child and Youth Care. She has additional training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as mindfulness-based approaches to mental health care. She has also published in peer-reviewed journals and has been engaged in lecturing and supervising students with the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at The University of Toronto.
