Primal Integration

Primal Integration is a unified approach to growth and healing that combines deep psychotherapy, spiritual practice, and wholistic healthcare within a safe, non-directive relationship.

Modalities include:
  • Primal therapy
  • Client-centered counselling
  • Conflict resolution
  • Zen meditation
  • Gestalt

Primal Integration work can resolve many symptoms and their causes, such as depression, grief, anxiety, rage; addictions, relationship dysfunction, career and life direction; physical and stress-related illnesses; pre and perinatal trauma; physical, sexual and emotional abuse.

Primal Integration is a thorough, but non-directive approach that offers Four Levels of Involvement: Cognitive, Expressive, Integrative, and Universal. Most people looking for resolution to their problems can find a level that works best for their needs and degree of commitment.

Primal-Based Feeling-Centered Depth Therapy

Fort Collins, Colorado

RealSelf Services offers primal-related feeling-centered depth therapy. It's a way to break through timeless hurt and the 'stuckness' of self, and to reclaim one's birthright of light and energy.

"I received my Master's in clinical counseling at the University of Dayton, and went through Ohio's unusually rigorous licensure process (requiring not merely the standard internships, but many post-Masters clinical classes), resulting in the Licensed Professional Counselor license. Through the past eight years, I have studied, practiced, developed theory about, and refined an expertise in primal-related, deep-feeling therapy."

LA PSYCHOTHERAPIE : La thérapie primale intégrative est une psychothérapie basée sur l'essentiel de la thérapie primale d'Arthur Janov.

D'un point de vue théorique ou technique d'autres auteurs ou travaux y ont été intégrés.

Alice Miller, Wilhelm Reich, Michel Odent, Aletha Solter, Thomas Gordon et certains travaux psychanalytiques ou psychopathologiques font partie, entre autres, de cette intégration.

D'autres part des innovations stratégiques différencient notre méthode du modèle originel.

" La thérapie primale allie le sens des mots à la force des sentiments, car ce qui donne la force aux pensées ce sont les sentiments et les besoins qui la sous-tendent.

Thierry Carrasco, Conférence sur la psychothérapie de la Souffrance.

Couples * Family * Children * Individual * Primal * Genograms * Film Consultation

Between September 1992 and November 1996, I trained with Dr. Jonathon Christie and Dr. Arthur Janov at Dr. Janov’s International Primal Training and Treatment Center in Venice, California. I offer a holistic approach to Primal, working with you to mitigate the effects of original “Primal” traumas while simultaneously helping you to function and improve your quality of life in the present. This preempts the tendency to “wait for the next feeling” to change one’s self destructive or otherwise unwanted behavior and accelerates healing. I work with individuals, couples, families, children, and adolescents. I also offer film consultation (MA Cinema Production U. So. California ). See my website for more details.
