Angela Bianco Smith, LCSW

Holistic Psychotherapist

Contact: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapists/angela-bianco-smith-san-diego-ca/747578

Angela specializes in working with women who are feeling stuck, stressed, disorganized, overwhelmed, burned out, or uninspired. New stressors? Recent break up? Family issues? Anxious? Lonely? New life transition of marriage, birth or loss? Holistic psychotherapy focuses on all aspects of health including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. You will be supported with tools, reflections, deep dives, and resources that will lead you back to your inner source. If you’re ready to explore your innate gifts and wisdom to start your healing journey; I am here to walk you back home. You do not have to do this alone; I got you girl!

We cannot begin healing our narratives and habit loops until our body feels safe to do so. My expertise in movement, trauma, body work, and meditation helps clients create sustainable and meaningful rituals & practices to improve their health and wellness. I also offer community healing circles for women to inspire collective healing and impowerment.

You cannot heal what you don’t understand and you cannot integrate what you have not yet felt. My therapy space is a place to deeply feel your feelings, to awaken your awareness, and to commit to action. I do not just treat the symptoms. I encourage you to feel, express, notice, and transform the underlying pain and suffering for sustainable life changes!
