Spirituality

The term spirituality has evolved and broadened over time and typically refers to a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves. Spirituality is an expansive and wide-ranging concept encompassing many points of view. It often involves a search for meaning in life. Although it means different things to different people, spirituality can play an important role in helping people address mental health issues and maintain good mental health generally. A spiritual practice can help individuals stay grounded and provide a framework for coping with stress. If you are interested in expressing or exploring your spirituality as a part of therapy, reach out to one of TherapyDen’s spirituality experts today.

In a safe and non-judgmental space, I offer the opportunity to explore what may emerge during spiritual exploration such as spiritual & kundalini awakening, supernatural phenomena, and sacred medicine experiences. Sacred Medicine Holistic Integration Therapy consists of embodied psycho-spiritual integration for psychedelic experiences that are a direct result of post spiritual rituals within a ceremony/retreat directed by a shaman/spiritual practitioner in a sacred group setting.

Transpersonal experiences, deep study, and frequent practice have opened an inner door for me some 10+ years ago that has been open since. As a result, I've felt a sense of presence and being that informs my approach to life and my service to others. I also focused my clinical specialty in Spiritual and Depth Psychology as I earned my Master's degree.

Deep study, transpersonal experiences, and my personal practices 10+ years in the making have opened a door in me that has never closed -- a synthesis of Western with Eastern philosophy -- that shapes who I am today. This backbone of mindfulness, Being-ness, and acceptance are aspects that move me and are cornerstones to my method of support.

I earned my PhD in clinical psychology by studying spirituality and transformation. As faculty at Yale University, I conducted research with atypical psychedelic substances. My first published article was on the spiritual and psychedelic potential of dextromethorphan. I have written and spoken about psychedelic science for over a decade, co-founded the Yale Psychedelic Science Group, and documented traditional healing and religious practices in Mexico.

Life is often inherently spiritual to humans as we wrestle to find meaning in our lives, whether or not we realize it. This could involve a search for fulfillment in life, an existential question of who we are and what we have to offer to others, how to live morally, and so on. The journey is not easy, as it concerns the very fabric of our beings; thankfully, we do not have to journey alone.
