About Audrey ONeal

Personal struggles can often make us feel like we are on a sinking ship, but it is possible to make changes and thrive. I am a strong believer that individuals have within themselves the power to change and that change is a continuous part of the life journey. Let’s work together to tap into your strength and resilience to help resolve your psychological distress in order to realize positive changes.

Currently, I am completing a doctorate degree (PsyD) in clinical psychology. I place emphasis on a holistic approach to mental and emotional wellness. My approach is humanistic in nature, strength based and person-centered. I use use shamanic tools and techniques to help individuals strengthen strengthen self-belief and tap into inner wholeness.

Whether you are struggling to control your emotions, find meaning and purpose in your life, or experience more joy and well being, I can help you release negative patterns of thinking and replace them with more adaptive and empowering thoughts.

Apart from English, I speak Spanish fluently.
