Transpersonal Therapy

Transpersonal therapy is a therapeutic treatment orientation that takes a holistic approach. Instead of focusing only on the mind, transpersonal therapy takes the physical, emotional, intellectual, creative and social needs of the individual into account. In transpersonal therapy, the emphasis is on the health of the spirit. The theory behind transpersonal therapy is that all people consist of parts that are intangible and beyond our known existence (or spiritual). Working to heal these spiritual aspects is necessary in order to achieve whole wellbeing. Think this approach might be right for you?

I received my Master's degree in Transpersonal Counseling and Art Therapy. Transpersonal Counseling allows for exploration of soul purpose, spirituality and existential concerns in addition to processing thoughts and feelings in therapy. As a transpersonal counselor, I approach therapy from a whole-person and mindfulness-based perspective that meets you wherever you are at on your path.

The type of counseling I offer is spiritual counseling. Spiritual counseling is based on spirituality, and I define spirituality as the state of being connected to one's own spirit. We have our physical bodies and physical reality but also nonphysical bodies and nonphysical reality, which is beyond our personal identities. Transpersonal therapy is a kind of holistic therapy but focuses more on the transpersonal spiritual side of our physical-spiritual spectrum.

Exploration of non-ordinary states of consciousness and use of mindfulness practices can be an effective way step outside of the ego and gain a wider perspective on one's problems.

Transpersonal, otherwise understood as spiritual, is a way to connect to the deepest part of ourselves. The area where I find the deepest spiritual meaning is helping you discover and develop your own purpose and life meaning.

With a master's degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology, I incorporate a view of wholeness into my work. I see each child and parent as whole, versus coming to me all broken and in pieces. This view of wholeness allows for acceptance of all parts, no matter how much they are not desired. With this approach, my clients and their parents can welcome in anger and anxiety, use their arrival as a teacher, and regulate themselves with effective coping skills.

If your primary caretakers are not addressing the whole of you, body, mind and soul, you are not going to be well. Unless each person is working on all aspects of the human constitution we will always fall short and may fall by the wayside. Spiritual counseling is not necessarily based on religion, but can be if that is what you need and prefer. It's about helping you heal from the inside out.
