Oliver Flores, AMFT
Oliver Flores (he/him) is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist who works with children, teens, and adults. He earned his Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Southern California and his Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of California, Irvine. Oliver’s therapeutic approach emphasizes the role that an individual’s intersecting identities have on their mental health, and he works with his clients to ensure that he provides support in a culturally and identity-sensitive manner. He meets his clients with empathy wherever they may be on their journey toward healing and personal growth. Oliver works from a CBT theoretical approach but combines psychodynamic theory to help clients better understand how their current selves are being impacted by past events throughout their life.
Oliver has worked in community mental health settings, school systems, and private clinics providing support to individuals with mood disorders, personality disorders, and those needing ADHD support. He has experience working with children and adolescents needing behavioral and emotional support due to complex trauma, as well as children and adolescents involved in the foster care and criminal justice system. Oliver has worked with adults needing support with anxiety, depression, and relationship/interpersonal problems, as well as adults with serious mental illness experiencing homelessness and/or struggling with substance use.
