Why Work with Jaspen?
psychological / mental health training is based on the traditional
medical model that sees clients, or "patients" as having an illness to
be treated. Standard work of this type involves an authority figure
administering a mental illness diagnosis - sometimes, even, when only
minor concerns are presented.
work breaks away from this approach. She holds a strong conviction
that although her clients may be enduring personal hardships, sometimes
on various levels at once, they are not flawed, "sick", or inferior in
of some type of defect needing to be fixed, Jaspen sees her clients
inner states and external circumstances as vehicles that point towards
specific elements of personal advancement. Her specialized orientation
guides her clients towards emotional grounding, problem solving,
heightened creativity, expanded perception, and advanced presence.
Jaspen uses the material that her clients bring as a means to
fulfilling their highest aptitude, accessing their unique gifts, and
growing into natural states of contented, joyful and healthy living.
