As a counseling psychologist, I take a process-oriented approach to patient care with humanistic, psychodynamic and developmental considerations. I provide individual and couples counseling and I specialize in treating anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders. In addition, I facilitate a skills-based group designed to assist patients who are struggling with chronic pain. I use evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and solution-focused therapies, and tailor treatment to meet the unique needs of each patient. I believe therapy is a collaborative effort grounded in the strength of the patient-physician relationship, which itself can be transformative and healing.
I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the exciting and collaborative atmosphere. Each day presents new challenges and opportunities to grow while working alongside a number of talented faculty and staff dedicated to providing our patients with the highest quality care.
In my free time, I like to spend time outdoors working in the yard. I also enjoy reading and drinking a good cup of coffee.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 11/01/2020, Dr. Olenick has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
