Emilia Sabatowska, LMHC Whole Living Center Founder



I am a trauma focused therapist, specializing in psychedelic integration and support. My psychotherapeutic style is informed by mindfulness meditation and other mind-body approaches.I support clients in restoring their connection to self and others, as well as trusting their healing intelligence.

I will work with you to recover your inherent wholeness and to identify the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that prevent you from living a healthy and inspired life. We will process any unresolved emotions that interfere with your growth, and help you find clarity and focus.If you have a relationship to psychedelics, I can support you by offering integration and harm reduction sessions. Together, we can explore your experiences of non-ordinary states of consciousness in a way that supports healing and growth.
I am currently not accepting new clients for psychotherapy.

Speak your truth and feel heard. Through establishing an authentic connection and providing a compassionate space to share, clients can start to embrace their strengths and utilize their personal power. Everyone deserves the time and space to explore their narrative — including the conflict, the achievements, the concerns and the hopes. When we find our meaning or purpose, we feel more fulfilled and feel ready to face life’s challenges. This can take some time, but it is comforting to go through this process with someone by your side. By collaborating together, anything is possible. I like to use tools and techniques that the client finds to be most helpful — this can be cognitive approaches, existential examination, strengths-based communication, empowerment strategies, expressive arts and much more. Let’s explore.

In addition to psychotherapy, I have been studying astrology for the past 4 years and have held astrology workshops in various settings. I find that integrating psychotherapy with astrology is a profound way to understand the energy that we face every day; and it’s a great way to explore different strategies on how to best navigate this energy! I offer individual astrology sessions that range from learning about general astrological concepts- to reading birth charts and applying it to current life challenges. If you don’t see a time slot posted for this, please email me to set up an appointment!

Counseling is a way to help us find the confidence to become our most Authentic Self. Having someone who is there as an unbiased supportive presence can help us make the choices to a more authentic and joyful life. I believe it is imperative to create a therapeutic space where all of our intersecting identities feel comfortable and understood. From this space we can begin to cultivate self-compassion, understanding, and accountability through multiple integrated techniques (CBT, movement, narrative, mindfulness). Bringing your whole self, a sense of humor, and working together is all we need to make therapy a rewarding experience.

I am passionate about providing therapeutic spaces to all intersecting identities who are looking for mental health support, esp. Queer and Trans* individuals. As a sex/kink-positive, intersectional therapist I believe I provide a very inclusive space for anyone to heal in. Without including one’s entire identity we cannot provide them with adequate care.

It can be difficult to take the next step towards therapy, but afterwards there will be someone there to support you through any transitions or difficulties that lie ahead. I would love to be the therapist there for you.

Sophie Cross


A compassionate and nonjudgmental relationship between therapist and client is an essential ingredient for the healing process. We live in a busy world that does not always support our wellbeing. Our nervous system may be easily exhausted and burnt out from the demands of work, interactions between humans, and our own developed self talk. At this time more than ever, it is crucial that we return back to our bodies, to the present moment for reflection and relaxation in order to reset our nervous systems (and brains!).

I am inspired by the healing arts and an eclectic approach combining CBT, DBT, mind and body work including mindfulness, guided mediation and body tapping (EFT), along with art therapy. These combined interventions have the potential to restore balance and stability in the mind, body and energy systems. I believe there is an unique artist within every person. We are the creators of our lives and when we intentionally connect with our own creative process we benefit from increased problem solving , curiosity, self expression and imagination.

I encourage clients to honestly look within. I believe the obstacles in our lives are learning opportunities for growth and healing. With the power of awareness we shift into choosing what serves us, and observing what does not. I have experience working with adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, learning disabilities, anger issues, and difficulties with transition. Let’s work together to tailor a plan to meet your personal goals.
