How it works

I FACILITATE YOUR NATURAL MOVEMENT TOWARDS FULL HUMAN-BEINGNESS

 

It is my goal to provide a comfortable, safe environment to build a relationship based on trust, safety, and unconditional friendliness. From this place, I help you change your way of being in the world through working with core material, such as feelings, beliefs, and memories. It is down here, deep in your subconscious, that I can help you discover the full expression of who you are and what is possible in your life. This process can be difficult at times, which is why I offer specialized training in the branch of psychology concerned with the alleviation of human suffering.

About Me

Hi, I’m August Jensen.

As a graduate of Naropa University, I offer a compelling approach to the therapeutic relationship that draws on traditional western psychology, and integrates the eastern practices and philosophy of Zen Buddhism.

However, while therapeutic modalities and approaches are useful to have, nothing is more important than the counseling relationship. I don’t have many special tricks or techniques — I just really care about helping people live more fully in their body and mind.
