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?

Dr. Inez utilizes Jungian archetypes and psychedelics to evoke a sense of ritual and ceremony in her work.

Exploring the positives. Connecting with nature. Listening to dreams. Transpersonal therapy is an exploration of you and your environment and how you affect each other. Profound healing happens when we dive into our subconscious, allowing it to show us where we are blocked. Bring into awareness what was once unknown.

— Margaret Bell, Counselor in Denver, CO

As a transpersonal psychologist, I believe that each person possesses the life force to heal and guide their life. I am a guide, not a problem solver. I learn and grow from performing therapy as much as the people I work with. I strive for authenticity, vulnerability, and connection with the people I work.

— Bryan Cohen, Psychologist in Lafayette Hill, PA

Not all counselors are trained/prepared to understand the differences between psychosis and transpersonal experiences. I have taken graduate-level classes, received supervision, and consulted with experienced colleagues on the subject of spiritually-significant moments, after-death communication, near-death experiences, and dreamwork. I want my clients to know that I am a safe person to discuss these topics with and will seek to explore their meaning and significance with you.

— Braden Weinmann, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in ,

Transpersonal Therapy takes a spiritual and healing approach to self growth and understanding one-self. All people need to be connected to the soul. This is different than religion.

— Michelle North, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Encinitas, CA

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.

— Jeffrey Kishner, Mental Health Counselor in , NY

Transpersonal Therapy, unlike most forms of psychotherapy that concentrate on improving mental health, takes a more holistic approach, addressing mental, physical, social, emotional, creative, and intellectual needs, with an emphasis on the role of a healthy spirit in healing. Those who are open to exploring their spiritual side, becoming more spiritually aware, or finding a spiritual path or who are having trouble finding meaning in their lives may benefit from this approach.

— Linda L Vance, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

A transpersonal therapist sees everyone and everything as connected. On a personal level, I wonder if we are all just different aspects of one larger being. From this perspective, non-local interaction is an everyday occurrence, whether we're aware of it or not. I use my tantric healer training to help guide you to healing relationships with those you love and with those who've hurt you, whether they are alive or have passed.

— Erika Laurentz, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Olympia, WA

I am trained in transpersonal therapy, which blends eastern philosophy with western psychology. I welcome spiritual and religious questioning.

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.

— Jeffrey Kishner, Mental Health Counselor in , NY

A transpersonal approach to therapy means that I do not think there is a separation between our psychological and spiritual self. My therapeutic approach is informed by my 10+ years as a practitioner, student and teacher of meditation and yoga. Spiritual truths and teachings can help us heal, and there is value in connecting our sense of purpose, meaning and value in this world.
