Welcome, I'm glad You're here
My name is Asha Gozzelin (ze/zir pronouns) and I'm a licensed therapist (Licensed Masters Social Worker), Transformative Mediator, Somatic Therapist, pro-liberation facilitator and fifth-generation healer. I offer "Sacred Sadhana" or the invitation to participate in life as a sacred path and practice.
I approach therapy as an invitation to explore deeper connections between Self (body/mind), community and environment through self-regulation & co-regulation techniques, a relational focus and practicing new ways of being through self-inquiry and communication.
I have extensive training (over 500 hours) and practice (over 1,000 hours) on holistic body-mind practices, complex and developmental trauma, and anti-oppressive practices. I've also researched and published articles on these topics.
I offer evidence-based mental health interventions with holistic, affirming care for teens (12+), adults of all ages and families of all kinds, including couples. I strive to partner with folks who may be struggling with mental or physical health issues, as well as identity development and life transitions. I enjoy co-creating a space with clients where choice, shared authentic experience and unconditional positive regard are the foundation of healing.
As a member and ally of the queer and gender-expansive communities, disability community and polyamorous (RA) community, I bring empathy from my lived experiences into my work.
Depending on symptoms and goals, I use interventions and perspectives from Trauma Center's Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Transformative Mediation, and Functional Family Therapy (FFT). I've also trained extensively in offering Gender Affirming Care for youth and adults.
I'm happy to answer any questions about my approach, and to schedule an exploratory 15-minute call or video chat to see if we'd be a good fit. Please feel free to reach out and I'll get back to You within 3 business days.
