Olga is an avid reader and has an insatiable appetite to learn about the world, the mind, and relationships. She began analyzing herself and others at a very young age and knew she wanted to become a therapist by the age of 12. Olga set off on her path to become one and while the journey has led her various directions in the field, she never lost sight of the calling to help heal broken hearts and dreams.
Tapia-Farrell grew up in Texas and went to the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities for her Bachelor of Science, followed by University of Wisconsin- Stout for graduate work in Marriage & Family Therapy. She now lives in Farmington with her family. Tapia-Farrell has been happily married for 17 years to Rich and has 4 beautiful daughters.
As Tapia-Farrell states, “My experience has led me to multiple directions. In my early career, I worked with at risk Latino youth and their families and child abuse and trauma work. While this work was emotionally challenging on me, it was also very rewarding in getting children and their families to a more loving, safer, and harmonious place. I am also very passionate about my work with couples and families. As a systems therapist, I enjoy guiding and supporting individuals finding their strengths and their passions. Helping couples who have lost sight of what led them to each other in the first place! Families with adolescents can be exceptionally rewarding. Adolescence is a time where young people think of themselves in relation to the world and often pull away from home, but it can also be place where they can connect and love the people who made them!”
