Under Clinical Supervision

Abraham Awais, Licensed Master Social Worker, 20616 is practicing under the supervision of Melissa Pavlik (Arizona, LCSW, 20561) at Innerlight Counseling.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Hi! Each of us walks our own path. I primarily use IFS (Internal Family Systems) and can help you reconnect and build relationships with all parts of yourself. I can offer you a pathway to your inner world and journey alongside you as we rediscover what was lost, returning to parts stranded in dark corners of the past with tenderness and compassion. The majority of my experience includes working with childhood trauma, neglect, depression, anxiety, codependency and grief. As a first-generation Middle Eastern American, I wholeheartedly understand adverse experiences, cultural burdens and identity conflicts that keep us feeling lost. I am trained by the Internal Family Systems Institute as an IFS therapist. I am also heavily influenced by Person-Centered and Psychodynamic theories of the psyche, as well as Jungian Analysis. I believe understanding and processing the past using compassion and deep curiosity is the key to living with fulfillment in the present. In my free time, I like collecting and listening to vinyl, going to concerts, writing, and reading books & manga. As we work together, my intention is to help you heal connections that may have been buried away because of trauma, abuse, and dysfunctional relationships. Feel free to reach out for a free phone consultation!
