About Olivia Fae Stadler

Call or email olivia.stadler@yahoo.com for a complimentary brief consultation: 415-964-0892.

I currently offer in-person psychotherapy services in Pacific Grove, CA as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) #115228 and Certified Hakomi Therapist. Telemedicine online therapy services are an option for clients non-local to the Monterey area, (within the state of California and internationally). COVID safety protocols are in place.

I obtained my Master's degree in Integral Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco. My alma mater reflects my value system of taking a grounded approach to The Perennial Philosophy integrating Eastern and Western thought. As a transpersonal therapist, I bring non-dual wisdom traditions including Buddhism, mystical Christianity, and the New Thought movement to the process of deep inquiry.

Read about my Subtle Energy Medicine practice.

Additionally, I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Principia College in Illinois. My earlier career in web design/development includes management experience in education, non-profit publishing, human resources, and e-commerce. Born and raised in California, I have also lived in the midwest and on the east coast. I love animals, and work with my Shiba Inu as a therapy dog.
