Tori Olds, PhD
Dr. Olds is a psychologist in private practice in Austin, TX. She specializes in emotionally attuned psychotherapy with individuals and leads several young adult groups. Tori has many years of training in mindfulness-based practice and has been engaged in her own daily practice for over 12 years. Tori says, “As a therapist, I am honored by the opportunity to help individuals find greater peace, strength, and fulfillment. Often our lives are so busy, there is very little opportunity to stop and discover where support is needed. Taking this time for oneself, whether to reflect on one’s relationships, to work through difficult emotions, or to gain awareness as to one’s behaviors or self-perceptions, can be transformative. She is a member of the American Psychological Association and the American Group Psychotherapy Association. www.deepeddypsychotherapy.com/tori-olds-phd.
