Ana Paula Soares, LPC

It always intrigued me how people interact, how we perceive the world around us and how our hearts and minds work. This curiosity and fascination has led me into my career as an artist and a licensed professional counselor and also to my own personal healing journey and self-discovery. I believe that when we feel, are seen, heard, and when we have a safe space to grow and flourish, unimaginable things can happen. We can heal from deep wounds, grow, transform, and create.

I have been blessed with several opportunities academically and spiritually to deepen my understanding of our human nature. Originally from South America, Brazil, I have been learning from many brilliant healers, teachers, academics, and therapists, from South America, Mexico and North America.

In 2005, I received my License as a Professional Counselor and I have been living and working in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In my work I combine modern science, psychology, experiential work and ancient knowledge to best support the healing and integration of your life experiences.

​In addition to my integrative counseling service, I also provide trainings, public speaking, retreats and support organizations to implement community programs regarding racial justice, emotional health, historical and generational trauma. The journey I embark on with my clients in the clinical or community setting, is warm and awakening. I truly believe that we all deserve to live a conscious and fulfilled life.
