Dr. Linda Olson is a licensed psychologist and psychotherapist, as well as a victim advocate, with over 30 years in private practice specializing in domestic violence, abuse, and trauma. Dr. Olson has a dual masters degree in clinical social work and clinical psychology from the University of Iowa, and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology, Argosy University, in Atlanta.

Olson’s postdoctoral work has focused on developing treatment programs for those who experience childhood domestic violence (CDV) and struggle with its impact.

Dr. Olson is a board member of the Childhood Domestic Violence Association (CDV.org) and is the chapter founder and president of the association’s Georgia chapter.

Olson has dedicated her life to raising awareness of CDV and helping deliver the solutions to those affected, in memory of her two sisters, who, she believes, lost their lives because they were unable to overcome that impact.

Growing up with CDV, Linda has a personal understanding of the profound feelings of loss, hopelessness, and feeling alone that are associated with childhood trauma. She has experienced firsthand the cycle of violence, fear, and uncertainty that ALL too often persist for those who have had similar experiences.
