Meet Barbara Olinger

I'm Barbara Olinger. I have a masters in Social Work. I'm a parenting consultant and director of Family Development at YWCA Sta. Monica west side. I've been working with families for 30 years. I started out as a child and family therapist and moved to more educationally-based approach about 20 years ago. In my work, in my private practice, I do couples work, parenting workshops and pre-school teacher trainings. At my YWCA job, I supervise several different programs and do mommy-and-me groups, toddler-and-me groups, parent support groups. I have 2 children, 2 sons: Alex who's almost 23 years old and Nathan who's 19 years old. I like hiking and reading and I love my job. I get to see families grow everyday.
