It is the relationship that heals
— Irvin Yalom

Awakened Higher Self is a psychotherapy practice with a mission to create a safe healing place for you. Therapy is an intimate connection between you and your therapist. Together with trust, compassion, and authenticity we build a unique relationship so you can comfortably explore difficult parts of life. In this space, you can begin to heal and release what is holding you back from living as your best self. The relationship between you and your therapist is the most valuable part of therapy. I honor and value our relationship by being client centered, compassionate, and genuine. I treat every client as I do people in my family, with respect, acceptance and understanding. Compassion and safety is how we heal.

Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.
— Buddha

Therapy is for Everyone

Therapy is a place to connect with your inner being, develop insight into your emotions, thoughts and experiences and to consciously choose how to exist in this world. Some seek therapy to make sense of what is happening in their daily life while others may attend therapy during a difficult period in their life, to heal from a past trauma, or to strengthen their relationships. There is no right or wrong reason to attend therapy.

Awakened Higher Self wants to end the shame, judgement and stigma that something has to be wrong if you are in therapy. You are not crazy or weak. You don’t have to suck it up. Will power alone cannot resolve the problem. Simply moving on or forgetting about it won’t stop the nagging thoughts, sadness or loneliness you may feel.

Talking with someone or seeking guidance is a sign of strength and self-love.

Mental wellness effects your overall ability to function. Therapy can help you cope with stress, enhance your life, improve physical wellbeing, sharpen your thinking, and much more.

In addition to tending to mental wellness, I can help you overcome life difficulties including:

  • Depression & Sadness

  • Changes in Mood

  • Anxiety & Worry

  • Addiction, Substance Use & Co-Occurring

  • Crisis Stabilization/Support

  • Anger & Frustration

  • Parenting

  • Couples

  • Highly Sensitive Person/Empath

  • Grief & Loss

  • Suicidal Thoughts

  • Self-Harm

  • Self-Esteem

  • Relationship Difficulties

  • Life Transitions/Changes

  • Trust Issues

  • Stress Management & Daily Life Concerns

  • Child & Adolescent Issues (ex: school, social, family, behavior)

    If any of these topics connect with you, contact me for a free phone consultation to see how I can help enhance your life.

Tahlia DeLorenzo

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in New Jersey, a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Board Certified TeleMental Health Provider (BC-TMH). I earned my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Fairleigh Dickinson University.

My holistic approach seeks to heal the whole you - mind-body, soul, and spirit to deepen your understanding of self and interaction with the world. I am most passionate about helping those who feel lost or overwhelmed gain control of their daily life through exploration of self, thoughts, and life experiences. My goal is to help you enhance your life and overcome difficulties. We explore how life-long patterns were developed and why they continue to show up in relationships, family, career, and daily life. I also help those with depression and anxiety create inner calm to heal and improve their mood.

Together we can work to resolve your immediate situation and build strengths as you journey to discover your true self and regain control over your life. With a strong therapeutic bond, I guide you to safely and compassionately explore your most sensitive self and use it as a tool to navigate the world with ease, intention, and love.

Adults are not alone in life's difficulties. Life can be confusing and stressful for teens and kids too. When our kids struggle, the whole family struggles. With play and talk therapy, I help them make sense of the world, increase their self-worth, and manage emotions so they can improve at home and in school.

I am a trauma-informed therapist working with all ages and cultures, including at-risk populations. My professional background includes working with adults, adolescents, children, families, and groups. I worked in a variety of clinical settings: hospital based programs, short-term and long-term substance abuse rehabilitation centers, crisis stabilization, private school, outpatient programs, community in-home therapy, and private practice.

Getting Started

The process of getting started is easy, but may seem overwhelming. When you are ready to start your healing journey, contact me to schedule a free phone consultation. I understand your urgency so it is my priority to get back to you right away.

The consultation is a phone call to discuss your desire for treatment, answer any questions you may have and for both of us to determine if we are a good fit.

From day one we are partners in navigating your healing journey. I respect that therapy is an investment of your time, energy and money so it is important to me that you feel comfortable and safe at the start and throughout your journey. Therapy is about you and it should be tailored to best match your needs.

If you decide to start therapy, we can schedule an initial appointment. I offer day, evening, and weekend appointments for in-person or online therapy.


Day, evening, and weekend appointments are available.
