Transpersonal Therapy

Transpersonal Psychotherapy for Teens and Adults: Your inner strength and wisdom can become obscured by pain, fear, and the habits that you originally developed to protect yourself. In transpersonal psychotherapy, we work together to create access to those core assets and to healing emotional wounds.

“A transpersonal psychology specialization emphasizes the counselor’s presence, openness and authenticity as being central to the therapeutic process; it views emotional dysfunction as an opportunity for growth and maintains a respect for the client’s self-healing capacities. Transpersonal psychotherapists are interested in exploring the interaction and integration of personality, feelings and spirit – empowering their clients to connect with their essential self and to fulfill their soul’s purpose.”
