Octavia Phoenix


From an early age, Octavia had an interest in the human mind and human behaviors. She was intrigued by shows like Criminal Minds and Law & Order, and realized she wanted to help people who have experienced violence, trauma, and daily life stressors to process and cope with their experiences. To achieve this, she has earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and her Masters in Mental Health Counseling.

Octavia is a native New Yorker, having been born and raised in the Bronx. In her free time, she enjoys creative writing, crocheting, and spending time with her two cats.
