“You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts.” Khalil Gibran

Hello! I’m so glad you’re here and you’ve found my little corner of the internet!

Here are some thoughts for the moment:

As an immigrant I’ve struggled with identity for most of my life. Whether I was questioning my cultural identity, sexual identity, identity in roles I was forced to be in, and as a female-identified person, I could never feel whole, nor could I feel like I fit in. In order to feel a sense of belonging, I’ve sacrificed parts my self to fit into one group or another, feeling split and shattered the entire time. So in my deeply healing personal and spiritual journey I’ve come to realize that “identity” is ever-changing and fluid; whether it’s sexual, cultural, gendered, etc. Perhaps, what I am as perceived my others isn’t as important as what I feel in every exact “now” moment. Ive come to see myself as movie reel; wherever it’s paused is how I identify right then. 

Thanks to my own incredibly deep personal and spiritual journey, I understand how people’s sense of identity is who they are in any given moment. Forget the boxes of identities we can fit into for others’ sakes. I realize the BIGGEST struggle for clients is the lack of self identity in the truest deepest form. While we are trying to fit into the bigger “boxes” of sexual, gender, cultural identities, we forget to truly know our Self. By helping clients shatter past prescribed boxes of identities, belief systems, and colonial/oppressive notions, they discover a truer, deeper, more freeing sense of identity. Then I work to empower clients and help problem-solve so that they can safely and effectively be their full selves from a healed liberated space.

This is Me. I am That.

My name is Ashwini Addala and I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a holistic approach. Along with my extensive professional experience working with a wide range of people, I also utilize my own journey in dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, and existential crises to help clients navigate through similar storms.

 

My main goal is to help people gain a deeper understanding of the limiting belief systems they established throughout their lives so that they can uproot them and live healthier, more enjoyable, and fulfilling lives aligned with their purpose.

Flourish with Optimism,

Live Deliberately!

With a global, spiritual perspective, I help guide people toward their ultimate mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. I am also a certified MotoKi energy worker that uses Earth energy to heal and am enroute to getting certification in Reiki to incorporate Universal energy into the session. This approach combines healing techniques with traditional therapy to create more impact with my clients.

“Ashwini values real human connection. When I’m session, I feel like I am talking to a real person who has their own life outside of session. I feel safe to express myself in session and I feel related to.”

Aphrodite

“A beautiful, strong, secure, healthy and very connected therapeutic relationship. Ashwini has given me the best therapeutic experience I’ve ever had.”
