Professional statement

Alia Stewart-Silver is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California, Colorado, and Virginia. Alia believes that each of us are capable of breaking free from the habitual patterns that hold us back from experiencing the joy, connection, and meaning that is available. Alia has observed how the coping strategies her clients developed as children or adolescents trying to stay safe and accepted by others often end up causing more pain than benefit by the time they reach adulthood. These strategies often become clients' unconscious operating software through which they perceive the world, re-enact previous patterns, and remain trapped by limiting beliefs. She has seen how operating from these outdated mental and behavioral patterns stunts holistic well-being.

Alia’s approach to working with clients is to create a space of radical acceptance and unconditional care, so they can uncover who they truly are and what they need to thrive. She lovingly invites clients to reflect on past traumas and difficult experiences so they can integrate the residual feelings while maintaining a sense of safety in the present. She also encourages clients to examine how societal conditioning and intergenerational wounding have shaped their sense of self and life choices. Alia provides life coaching around self-identified goals and supports clients to access greater motivation to make the changes needed to meet those goals. Through mapping a fuller picture of who they are and where they want to go, Alia's clients have expressed living with more purpose, authenticity, and direction.

Alia earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from UC Berkeley in 2014 and has nearly 10 years of clinical experience supporting individuals and couples. She is also a trained Reiki healer, wilderness guide, community facilitator, and regenerative agriculturalist. Alia weaves the diverse threads of her training background into a unique and transformational therapeutic offering.


Message to clients

I am so glad you found me. I understand first-hand that it can be vulnerable and challenging to find the right therapist. Having been through my own healing journey, I have compassion for the moment you find yourself in whatever the details or specifics may look like. It is courageous to seek out support! Throughout my journey of personal healing and professional training, I have developed a wide-range of skills, practices, frameworks, and modalities that have both served me and now benefit my clients. So many of us are striving to navigate these unprecedented collective times with grace and vision, and as a holistic psychotherapist, I see my role as a trusted ally who can support you in doing just that as you walk your uniquely unfolding path.

If you feel called to learn more about my approach to healing or to explore the possibility of working together, I encourage you to schedule a free consultation call so that we can take the next step of meeting one another. I believe that we are all here for a reason and that the right kind of healing support and holistic guidance can help catalyze our process of healing and empowerment. It is an honor to support individuals to repair past wounds, clarify guiding visions, identify next steps, and celebrate small and large victories of living in more alignment and deeper purpose. Please reach out if you feel called to do so and no matter what, blessings on your journey.
