Soul Rooted Therapist & Facilitator
Holistic Guidance Along Your Unfolding Path
Alia Stewart-Silver, LCSW
Are You Hearing the Call?
We Live in Unprecedented Times.
Things within and without are rapidly changing. Many of us may be feeling alone and uncertain about what lies ahead. I believe we’re in a moment of immense crisis but also one of profound opportunity. Are you ready to answer the call?
I believe that each of us has a unique role to play in these pivotal times, which we can uncover with loving support and a reorientation toward what truly matters. I believe that when we come to know and heal ourselves deeply, we can then build a life rooted in deeper meaning, larger purpose, and boundless gratitude.
Are you ready to answer the call toward a more authentic and purposeful life?
Are you seeking an accountability partner to help you stay committed to your true path?
Is it time to heal past wounds and let go of old ways of being that no longer serve you?
Are you ready to build up your confidence and empower yourself to step into the next chapter of your story?
Life Purpose Discovery
I believe that each of us has a purpose to live into that fulfills us personally while also supporting the well-being of our loved ones and the world at large. We are part of an interconnected web of life and so it makes sense that all beings would be happier and healthier when we are thriving individually. I draw upon narrative therapy, somatic practices, earth-based wisdom, and expressive arts to help you uncover and embody your true calling.
Intimacy and Partnership Support
Humans are deeply relational beings, called to deep and transformative love. I weave together my background in attachment theory, mindfulness practices, somatic awareness, restorative justice, and earth-based ritual to support you in cultivating relationships built upon the solid foundation of deep love, self-respect, and authentic interpersonal exchange.
Resiliency and Capacity-Building
These efforts of personal healing and wholing are foundational to cultivating internal resilience and capacity. When we begin with healing ourselves, we are able to then offer more of ourselves to our loved ones and the world at large without it depleting our own emotional reserves. When we come from a place of internal resilience and capacity, we’re able to ride the waves of external change with less reactivity and resistance because we can always return to the solid ground we’ve built within.
I want to be a collaborative partner with you in processing and making meaning of these past experiences. By utilizing a trauma-informed therapeutic approach that combines integration tools from soul guiding and reauthoring practices from narrative therapy, I can help you reveal the deeper meanings found hidden in even your most traumatic stories and experiences of being human.
Soul Rooted Counseling
Soul Rooted Counseling (SRC) is an approach to healing that sees each of us as having a unique essence, or soul, that is the seed of our true being striving to express itself through us like a flower in bloom. Just like an actual seed, our soul requires the conditions of our life to offer an environment of safety, light, warmth, and wholesome nutrients in order to move from survival to blossoming. In our soulful blossoming, we fill a unique niche in the ecosystems of our families, communities, and the more-than-human world that is ours alone to fill.
I strive to offer my loving presence and extensive healing background to the cultivation of the seed within you, by helping you build an internal and external landscape that supports the sprouting of the seed that lies dormant within you. To do this, I will support you to uncover your soul gifts, address past wounds that are keeping you trapped in old stories and patterns, identify the deepest values that root you to this earth, and allow your highest calling to illuminate your sacred path forward one step at a time.

Professionally licensed in three states
I obtained my MSW (Master’s of Social Work) from UC Berkeley in 2014 and then worked for three years in community-based settings to accrue all the necessary clinical and supervisory hours. In 2017, I passed California’s two state licensing exams, and over the past two years I have successfully transferred my license to Virginia and Colorado in order to expand my practice to a wider range of individuals.
