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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

For clients who have spiritual interests, practices, or experiences, I integrate spirituality and transpersonal phenomena into therapy. My doctoral training at CIIS has included experiential and didactic coursework on transpersonal psychology and integrative approaches to healing. My background in Buddhist psychology and Tibetan Buddhism also influences my approach.
