Hadas Moalem
Graduate Student Intern, Naropa University, Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling

I am pursuing an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Naropa University with a concentration in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Psychology. I use she/her pronouns and I also hold a BA from the University of California, Santa Barbara in English Literature.


My therapeutic approach is unhurried, warm, nonjudgmental, and spacious. I like to remind my clients that there is not necessarily a place we are trying to get to, and I invite fluidity to the therapeutic process. In addition to talk therapy, I offer a space for clients to open up to other aspects of their experience that may be difficult to put into words, such as spirituality or existential issues. I strongly believe in the mind-body connection and will offer mindfulness and other body-based practices that may have an impact on your awareness of thoughts, emotions, or body sensations and how they relate to your everyday life.


I am interested  in  working  with people  who  may  be  struggling  with  relationship  dynamics  (familial  or  otherwise),  emotional regulation, attachment style, self-limiting beliefs/stories  especially related to the inner critic, or caregiver burnout. I am also  interested  in  working  with  the  elderly  population  as  I  am  passionate  about  giving  this  age  group  more  voice  and representation. I believe therapy is a collaborative process, and especially in the role of an intern, I welcome any feedback you may have throughout our time together.
