Vantage Quest Transpersonal Psychotherapy & Counseling Center
Transpersonal psychology broadens the traditional theories about the psyche
to include the spiritual dimensions of our being. Incorporating both empirical
and esoteric perspectives from global traditions, it provides a powerful model
of personal growth, human development, and individual healing.
Most of us experience moments when "something within" speaks clearly. Moments when the chatter of normal
self-talk gives way to
deeper inner wisdom. The goal of self-development is to improve one's ability to listen, to shift habitual attention from the chatter
- to the
The path inward may take different forms such as; spiritual practices like meditation
and prayer, yoga, martial arts, psychotherapy, life experiences, or relationships
as we re-create our being. Our commitment is to assist you in your search
We specialize in Psychosynthesis; the struggles involved in creativity,
creative work, and its effects on individuals and relationships; Spiritual
Emergence and its effects; EEG biofeedback, family therapy, and the therapeutic
use of sound.
We provide the following
A therapeutic approach to integrating personality strengths developed by
Roberto Assagioli, MD. Psychosynthesis is excellent for self-actualizing
individuals who wish to deepen their personal growth and expand their human
EEG Biofeedback has been demonstrated to be an effective alternative to
drug therapies for many disorders. It is also a wonderful tool for
self-exploration, peak performance, and deep relaxation. We are very pleased
to offer EEG Biofeedback in our Salina counseling office.
Individual & Family Therapy:
We provide caring therapy to the local community for families in crisis. This includes
relationship counseling for couples, individual therapy with adolescents and
adults, or group work with the entire family unit.
Guided Imagery is a process that helps the individual, through their
imagination, explore the psyche. In these deep relaxation states an
individual may resolve personal conflicts and gain access to their inner
healing nature. The guides role is as a companion to the clients process
and helps lead them.
We are innovators in the use of sound for psychotherapeutic application.
Sound has been a powerful vehicle for inner exploration for millennia. We use
ancient techniques such as drumming as well as modern recorded psychoacoustic
stimuli in combination with imagery and "talk therapy" to help our
clients heal and advance in self development.
We do counseling sessions by phone when it is appropriate. Not all
issues are appropriate for this work. It is always better to find a
therapist who is physically present with you. However, finding someone
who understands your issues is not always possible in your area. We will
provide telephone counseling if you are at a distance and we feel you can
There is no charge for
an initial phone consultation. We ask only that you contact us first to
schedule an appointment.
Improving creativity is one thing, enduring creativity is often more
difficult. We offer counseling to creative individuals and, those in
relationship with them, to help smooth what can be a difficult struggle.
Spiritual Emergence Counseling:
Sometimes spiritual practices unleash powerful inner forces that can be unsettling,
or even frightening. In traditional settings these events were guided by
spiritual leaders, mentors or other knowledgeable individuals. In
western society these events are often misconstrued as pathological and out of
We have both personal and professional experience with the issues involved
in spiritual emergence. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the many
traditions and practices which may evoke these events. It is important
to discern genuine psychic or spiritual phenomena from dangerous psychiatric
conditions. If we can help, we will. If we can't, we will try to
help you find appropriate care.
Intensives are for clients at a distance who wish a period of deep
exploration. They work like an individual workshop with Psychosynthesis,
one-on-one counseling, with periods of reflection and creating over 3-5
days. We provide this service here, or we will come to you. No
more than 2 clients can be scheduled at the same time. Transportation and
lodging costs are additional.
All services are on a sliding scale based on your ability to pay. A
reasonable fee based on your situation will be established and agreed upon in
our initial consultation.
Credit Card payments are acceptable.
