Transpersonal

Transpersonal therapy is a therapeutic approach that seeks to integrate the spiritual with modern psychological theory. The transpersonal (defined as “beyond the personal”) methodology looks at a client’s symptoms as part of a larger picture of energy moving throughout the world. Sessions are non-judgmental and transpersonal therapists will urge clients to look inward, transcending ego, and move towards spiritual self-development and awareness.

Transpersonal psychology is a therapeutic discipline that focuses on the importance of experiences that are considered to be outside of one's habitual waking consciousness. This may include topics such as spirituality, ritual, mindfulness, and non-ordinary states of consciousness. I enjoy discussing and supporting clients in finding relationships with each of these topics, through personal history and clinical training.

If it is the desire of the client, we can address treatment through the lens of the concerns being a spiritual problem. This kind of work may include a focus on using dreams, and/or identifying archetypal energies, and/or understanding astrological dynamics, that are related to present day concerns. Each of these approaches can provide unique guidance specific to the individual client. One goal of therapy being to reach a place of equanimity.

The connections between each other is the way that we define ourselves. There is an old Spanish proverb that says "tell me who you walk with and I'll tell you who you are." To explore and articulate our relationships can have a very profound effect on how we experience this life. People are genuinely happier when they feel deeply connected. This is at the core of therapy and being alive in the world.

I believe that a holistic awareness of self includes how we understand our place in the universe. We all grapple with who we are and how to find meaning and purpose in life, whether we are atheist, agnostic, religious, recovering from religion trauma, spiritual, or somewhere in between. My graduate degree concentration was Mindfulness-based Transpersonal Counseling, and I aim to support you in exploring and defining your own sense of spirituality (or lack thereof) on your own terms.

Our individual lives are the conduit for the big stories of life spanning across generations and continents. Both the challenges and the gifts you bring tie into patterns in ancestry, spiritual tradition, and cultural mythology, and must be worked in relation to these contexts. In my work with you, we view your experience as the process of healing and wisdom finding expression in the world.

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.

The transpersonal orientation concerns the deeper, spiritual (not 'religious') dimension of our lives. It acknowledges a higher self which can be experienced personally, rather than taken on faith. Some of the concerns with which transpersonal counseling works includes spiritual exploration and inquiry, development, practices, loss of faith, spiritual bypassing, and spiritual emergencies.

This approach focuses on the movement away from identifying with the ego self which has been created as a protective response to the experience of emotional pain.

For clients who are interested, I integrate spirituality and transpersonal perspectives into therapy. My graduate training has included experiential and didactic coursework on transpersonal psychology and integrative approaches to healing, and I have benefited from my own lived experience as well. This orientation helps me provide support with psychedelic integration, working with extraordinary experiences, and recovering from psychotic episodes.

The framework of my therapy/coaching explores the relationship of self within the context of the greater whole. What does it mean to be in right relationship with all of the sentient consciousness around us? What is our relevance within all of creation? By honoring our deepest truths may we then connect with the deepest truths of others. I assist my clients in this process.
