Dr. Supriya Blair, PsyD
“Enhancing our connection with ourselves is pivotal in how we deal with relationships and situations outside of us. This is why I work wholly with individuals in therapy. I teach adults how to think, not what to think. Empowerment is my main goal as a holistic healthcare provider: helping clients refine, define, and tune into their mind-body-spirit needs.”
Philosophy of Healing
Dr. Supriya believes that healing occurs within the context of relationships: our connection to self, others, a value or moral code, and the universe/higher spirit.
A lotus flower is a wonderful representation of the healing spirit. A lotus flower slowly blooms out of muddy, murky water. It illustrates how beauty can arise out of darkness and add strength to our character despite adversity.
As we lean into areas of discomfort and pain, strength to stand up to our fears and blossom into a more authentic version of ourselves becomes possible.
Teletherapy with Me
Warmth, empathy, and acceptance are universal traits that are healing. It is with these same ingredients that Dr. Supriya invites her clients to share their successes and challenges. When we’re able to develop a trusting, meaningful therapeutic relationship, courage to take small steps opens the door for impactful changes.
Dr. Supriya collaborates with her clients throughout the entire therapy process, incorporating psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and positive psychology practices. In addition, she uses a spiritual lens by looking at faith and value based systems, spiritual connectedness, and yogic principles. Dr. Supriya looks at you through a mind-body-spirit lens as you collaborate toward change, growth, and healing.
Why Holistic Therapy
“I’ve always been drawn to people. Curious as to why we do the things we do. Why we pick the choices we choose. And why we find ourselves in repeating patterns. As a teenager, I found some joy when someone felt comforted by a listening ear or encouraged by a thoughtful response. I remembered feeling I was on to something good!
I’ve also been touched by kindness, hurt, longing, and healing in my own life. I’ve learned that all of our stories weave together tales of adventure, pain, success, blocks, breakthroughs, light, stumbles, cravings, love, confusion, meaning, and acceptance.
My path into holistic health really began when I was first able to admit the words “I’m not happy” to myself at 21 years of age. Of course, this didn’t make sense to my logical mind, the part of me that was trying to rationalize all the reasons I “should” be happy: having a loving and supportive family, strong work ethic, sharp mind, and a kind heart. Something was still missing. I began my journey to find the missing link: my connection to my Self…
Writing, especially poetry, has been a powerful outlet for me since high school. I write when emotions feel too strong and too big to articulate out loud; when thoughts pull me in different directions; when I need to remind myself to honor and stay in my own lane in this Big World.
But most importantly, my love for psychology, holistic health, writing and sharing it with others began when I learned to love myself for how my Divine Maker created me.
As a supporter of celebrating humanness and making conscious choices, I’ve found psychology and holistic health and wellness to be both, the personal and career path for me. It has been truly rewarding and I would be honored to share your journey with you, as you navigate shifting chapters in your own life.”
