hello there

I’m Emily Rose Barr (she/her), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). Whether this is your first time in therapy or you have worked with a therapist in the past, you are welcome here. 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,

But I also know what it’s like to lead from a self-affirming space, one in which you can honor your needs and live by your values.

You + Me = We

I believe that there are no “good” parts or “bad” parts, only parts that long to be heard; and that when we are at our best, these parts function in harmony. Throughout our work together, I’ll encourage you to welcome each of these parts of yourself with curiosity and compassion.

You’ll learn how to accept your experience while quieting the inner voice of self-judgment, and replace thoughts of inadequacy with a balanced understanding of who you are and who you are working toward becoming.

I’ll invite you to come as you are, not as who others demand you to be. 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
» Relationships
» Women’s Issues
» Work-life Balance

You identify as a

» Creative
» Graduate Student
» Helper
» Millennial
» Over-achiever
» Parent
» People-pleaser
» Professional
» Type A

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.
