- Evonne Olson, Ph.D., LPCC
BA in Psychology from San Jose State College; MA in Counseling and PhD in Counselor Education from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Dr. Olson is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of New Mexico and a certified instructor of the NCDA Career Development Facilitator Curriculum.
Dr. Olson’s professional history includes working as a patient counselor at Presbyterian Hospital; an employment counselor at the New Mexico Department of Labor; an academic, personal, and career counselor and instructor at Santa Fe Community College; and an instructor at the University of New Mexico. Being a lifetime learner, she is passionate about supporting and encouraging students in their educational goals as well as their personal, emotional, and spiritual growth. Dr. Olson’s research agenda focuses on understanding structural level explanations of human behavior. To understand a person’s thinking, feeling and actions, she reasons, we must understand not only that individual but also the socially structured systems that comprise the context of behavior. Her doctoral dissertation explored the influence of the ideology and processes of White racial hegemony on counseling student resistance to racially themed classroom content.
