Dr. Bouse is a Transpersonal Psychology Consultant who offers clients unique, personalized consulting programs focused on personal alchemy for growth.  She is not a therapist, but a consultant and teacher. Dr. Bouse draws on psychology, philosophy, mythology, art, and ancient wisdom to guide clients through the discovery and engagement of their Soul-Self and Super Powers. 

Individual clients frequently seek personal transformation in the wake of a life-changing event, or an overwhelming desire to expand their consciousness and/or life experience.  Dr. Bouse’s approach is rooted in the Jungian/Hillman concept that such circumstances are portals to growth. She believes in Carl Rogers’ maxim that each person has the answers they need within, and works with clients to facilitate their discovery and interpretation of those answers. 

The primary tools used for this exploration are Self-Knowledge (gnosis), Expressive Arts, Connecting with Nature (ecopsychology), Dream Work, Guided (Neo-shamanic) Journey Work, Interdimensionality, and Personal Mythology. Such techniques such as arts-based inquiry and transgenerational investigation are also used.  Deep self-exploration to attain gnosis follows a hybrid system based on the principles of interdimensionality, archetypal mythology, transgenerational influences, and psychological multiplicity set forth by William James, Carl Jung, and James Hillman.

All consultations are via ZOOM and are in complete compliance with the Code of Ethics of the American Psychological Association.  Sessions are approximately 90 minutes in length and are scheduled for every other week.

— E.F. from Loudon, TN

“Our classes gave me confirmation that we all have some form of healing and spiritual communication with every living being around us. Some of us have the ability to tap deeper into that gift, and learning how to use those gifts has been an awesome experience.”

“What an incredible and divine gift to bring the conscious mind into the conversations and situations in modern life, and most especially the healing potential for all of the old traumas that need to be released.
