Vantage Quest Transpersonal Counseling Center
Transpersonal Counseling & Psychotherapy
Located in Salina, KS
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 Wisdom within.
The path inward may take different forms such as; psychotherapy, spiritual practices like meditation and prayer, yoga, martial arts,life experiences, or relationships as we re-create our being. Life unfolds like the bloom of a rose when we pay attention. Our commitment is to assist you in your search for a deep connection to Self.
We specialize in individual and relationship therapy; Psychosynthesis; Spiritual Emergence and its effects; the struggles involved in creativity, creative work and its effects; EEG biofeedback, and the therapeutic use of sound.
All services are $80 per session (50 min.). We also offer a sliding scale based on your ability to pay for those in need. A reasonable fee based on your situation will be established and agreed upon in our initial consultation.
There is no charge for an initial phone consultation. We ask only that you contact us first to schedule an appointment.

A transpersonal psychological 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 potential.
Sometimes spiritual practices unleash powerful inner forces like Kundalini awakening, psychic openings, or untoward sensory and extrasensory experiences 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 place.
We have both personal and professional experience with the issues involved in spiritual emergence and emergencies. 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.
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.
EEG Biofeedback has been demonstrated to be an effective alternative to drug therapies for ADHD, depression, attachment and addiction disorders. It may also be used to reduce pain, increase relaxation, and deepen the meditative experience. We are pleased to offer EEG Biofeedback therapies.
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 concerns is not always possible in every area. We will provide brief telephone counseling if you are at a distance and we feel you can safely benefit.
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 guide's role is as a companion to the client's process and to help 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.
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.
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 several days. We provide this service here, or in some cases, we will come to you. No more than 2 clients can be scheduled at the same time. Transportation and lodging costs are additional
