How do you Meet change when it arrives at your door?
Abide, Trust, Honor
PRACTICE + PHILOSOPHY
I’m Emily Suzuki. I am an integrative, biracial, licensed Psychotherapist and forever Life Doula. My work is to support you during both big and small transitions so that you can feel prepared and confident when moving towards transformation.
Change and transitions are truths we can consistently rely on happening throughout our lives. Often we are pressured to hurry up and get on with life, to put on a brave or happy face, and pretend that everything is good. The truth is, change can be painful and messy. Turning towards it, rather than away, requires radical compassion and intention.
Whether you’re designing a new career, find yourself at the end of a chapter, in the midst of a separation or divorce, or ready to expand into new parts of your life, I would be honored to support you.
Emily Suzuki has her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University New England. She has been in the mental health field for 6 years and counting. She is Level 1 Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Certified. With a background as a birth doula and certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Emily helps individuals through an attachment and relationally based change process. Together, she and her clients uncover barriers, attune to their hearts, and hold space for transformation and the question “how will I meet change when it arrives at my door?”
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
LET’S MAKE SPACE TOGETHER
You are on the cusp of an ending and a beginning, and experiencing a spectrum of feelings and emotions as your transition unfolds. Perhaps you are navigating parenthood, leaving a marriage, moving or relocating, starting a new business, or grieving something beloved. You feel both fierce and vulnerable, it is stressful and honestly, you’d rather find a way around the discomfort. But Wisdom tells you to LEAN IN and set your course forward, but how?
You need a life doula, who provides unconditional, nonjudgemental and compassionate support. TRANSITIONS ARE HARD to navigate alone, so you need a mentor who has experienced and felt what you are going through. Someone who has also surrendered to the powerful lessons that accompany change, and has thrived. Having a coach who has walked this path before, INSPIRES HOPE that navigating this transition will have a profound impact on the rest of your life.
WHAT'S IN YOUR WAY?
Change can feel risky, especially when we find ourselves at our growing edge. We are all really good at distracting ourselves and hiding from our pain and suffering, even our joy. This ultimately effects the quality and depth of our relationship with our inner most heart and spirit. It’s really hard to nurture and nourish our relationship to self. In fact, I would argue, MOST OF US DON'T LEARN HOW to. Believe me, I know, it’s taken work and continuous practice to get where I am today but it doesn’t have to be such a tenuous process for you. Let me help you make your path towards transformation more clear and defined, and save you the headache by sharing with you the gems I’ve found along the way.
ARE YOU READY?
Is life calling you to change or is a transition approaching on the horizon? Do you feel a mix of anxious, excited, nervous, scared, doubtful, curious or determined? Even though you’re already doing so much, do you know somewhere inside that this process could be more profound and transformational? With the right support there is a way for you to deepen your relationship to yourself and live more aligned with your values. What would it look like to MAKE SPACE FOR THAT WHICH IS MOST FREE AND WILD within you? How would it feel to have someone support you in accessing and celebrating this moment of your life?
WORK WITH ME
As a woman, a mother, and a masters level counselor, I know that WE ALL NEED CONNECTION and heart centered support to thrive. We need a fierce and trusted confidant by our side who will hold up a mirror and reflect back our truest intentions and deepest commitments. You will meet with me one to one over six months for a custom meta process that will guide you through this period of change and equip you with important knowledge, insights, skills and rituals to prepare you for transitions ahead.
