Welcome to Inner Alchemy!
We are a holistic psychotherapy practice located in beautiful historic Occoquan, Virginia and serving clients virtually in both Virginia and Maryland.
Alchemy is the ancient philosophical science of transforming matter into another form. Ancient alchemists believed that it was possible to turn lead into gold, as they saw all elements to be sourced from the same essence- only appearing differently due to their level of purity.
Inner Alchemy is the art of transforming one’s own mental and emotional elements- negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, painful emotions into the gold of freedom, wisdom, and peace. To be an Inner Alchemist is to become empowered with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to consciously create your own inner landscape and learn not only to cope with pain and difficult emotions- but to actually be able to process them in such a way that your experience of them enriches your life.
At Inner Alchemy, we are committed to the values of authenticity, empowerment, compassion, and freedom. We believe that every person has the capacity and power to chart their own course in life, to learn to consciously create their inner landscape, and to be the master of their own healing magic.
"Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself"
"My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws and to stop this incessant worrying that I can’t be loved as I am."
- Anais Nin
"Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do."
