I’m Emily Rose Barr (she/her), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). At A Soul Awake Psychotherapy, LLC, I specialize in working with women in their mid-20s to mid-40s whose lives have gotten a bit off kilter.

Resilient, bright, determined women.

Fatigued, stressed, and anxious women.

Women who need a reminder of who they are beneath their carefully polished exteriors.

A reminder that they are whole because of their flaws and failures, not in spite of them.

I know what it’s like to hide behind the pretenses of perfectionism and people-pleasing; to appraise yourself based on the opinions of others; to take on the emotions of loved ones without paying enough attention to your own,

When you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or uncertain, you are not alone. Therapy can help you get in touch with your inner self and make meaningful changes to honor your needs and live by your values.

You + Me = We

Whether this is your first time in therapy or you have worked with a therapist in the past, you are welcome here. In my role as a therapist, I help women become active participants in their own well-being as they redefine how they engage with the world around them.

I empathize and encourage, and invite you to come as you are. I will always ask how you’re doing, how you’re really doing, and sit with you as you find your voice.

We might be a good match if you struggle with;

» Anxiety
» Codependency
» Depression
» Life Transitions
» Low Self-worth
» Perfectionism
» Quarterlife Crisis
» Relationships
» Women’s Issues
» Work-life Balance

I’m not here to tell you how it is. You’re the author of your story.

I believe that each client has the capacity to integrate her most difficult experiences with a fundamental desire to change and that this union is what allows her to flourish.

Throughout our work, I will invite your feedback and engage with full transparency. I will honor your boundaries and ask that you honor mine. When I falter (because I’m human too) I will offer an explanation and make room for your questions or concerns. You will always be fully seen, fully heard, and fully respected.

By providing a comfortable and safe space, I hope that you feel like you belong.
