"Permission to live one's life is not something one is given; it is to be seized" James Hollis
Sarah McKelvey, MA, LPC
Utilizing the collected wisdom of many traditions from Western and Eastern psychology, philosophy, and spiritual orientations, the eclectic therapy I offer tends to be contemplative, insight-oriented, and introspective in nature. Together, through therapeutic dialogue and our shared experience of the therapeutic hour, we will seek deeper self-understanding, empathic connections, and relief/release from troublesome patterns, attitudes, and psychological difficulty.
Therapy invites mindful awareness and provides a protected, nurturing space to work through our personal issues. The experience of therapy fosters thriving rather than merely surviving, and helps open a greater capacity to choose our life rather than be dictated by circumstances.
This unique and meaningful counseling approach has been cultivated from:
“Both psychotherapy and sacred tradition provide the 'guided search' for the deeper, spiritual significance to life”
