Professional statement

Shakti Sutriasa is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Florida, Massachusetts and Washington states with expertise in anxiety, trauma, self-esteem and female empowerment. Shakti specializes in working with adults navigating major life transitions – be it a career change and connecting to life purpose, relationship struggles, empty nest challenges, or grief. She has a knack for helping her clients hone in on the core issues that are causing pain and disharmony, and assists them in a compassionate, safe manner to release these old patterns.

Many of her clients lead outwardly successful lives yet secretly feel unfulfilled or inauthentic. She supports her clients in gaining clarity about what they really want. This entails identifying and releasing unconscious, limiting patterns that have been preventing them from experiencing deep satisfaction and joy. Once these patterns are cleared, new habits and practices are established to support her clients in stepping into authentic, fulfilling lives.

Shakti’s gentle approach immediately put clients at ease. She creates a safe space through HIPAA compliant tele-therapy that enables her clients to quickly establish trust. Her approach typically begins with a question: What do you want to be true for you? She then uses a combination of inquiry, somatic (body based) techniques, and skills to support her clients’ positive change and self-transformation. She is a certified Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) provider, has completed trainings in mindfulness, EFT (tapping), and is a happiness and success coach. She has had an active spiritual practice since the 1990s, which has included studying with Hindu gurus, Buddhist teachers, and shaman, helping her deepen into her relationship with the Divine Mother. She currently teaches and studies the metaphysical text, A Course in Miracles, and is a popular meditation teacher on Insight Timer.

Message to clients

Are you a high functioning individual who’s come to the realization that even if your life appears to be outwardly successful, on the inside you feel alone, disconnected or not authentically engaged in your day to day existence?

This dissonance between how your life appears and how you actually feel is causing unhappiness and pain. This is where I step in.

We’ll begin by objectively exploring your life, identifying what’s working and what needs to change for you to feel genuinely present, happy, fulfilled, and on purpose.

This emotional inquiry requires a commitment of time and financial resources. It’s a journey to essentially re-wire you from the inside out. which can sometimes feel scary and uncertain as old ways of living are released. Yet this work is the most important commitment you can make to yourself.

It’s you making a stand to claim your authority. It’s you being willing to wake up to the truth of who you are in all of your magnificent glory. And as you do, you will experience everything you have always wanted- genuine peace, joy, liberation, a real sense pf purpose- and so much more.
