Emma Donovan, LCPC, LPC

Alternative Therapist
St. Louis MO
Clients come to me for a variety of issues, such as spiritual or personal growth, relationship issues, anxiety, self-esteem issues, issues of meaning and purpose, or career clarity. Whatever you are struggling with, I help you access your inner guidance, feel the light of your core self, and open up your innate healing potential to integrate the various parts of your mind, body, emotions, and spirit into a more harmonious whole. The heart of my practice is in altered state work with IFS, Depth Hypnosis, and Applied Shamanism. You will get the opportunity to go on a journey through your inner world for healing, self-awareness, insight, and guidance. If you have prior experience with psychedelics, you may find that these methods complement your past experiences. This is because they allow for inner exploration in a way that some people have commented feels, well, "trippy!" If you're curious about psychedelic healing but you do NOT want to take a substance, you might experience the insight and transformation you're seeking using these methods alone. If you have chosen to take psychedelic substances on your own, you may find that these methods help you integrate your journey and heal whatever patterns were illuminated during your experience. I recognize that there is a rising interest in psychedelic healing, and an increased need for help integrating psychedelic experiences. Many people have found that IFS and shamanic work are beneficial in the integration process. Therefore, I am offering my services as a potential path. Please note that my area of expertise is in exploring the inner landscape, and not in specific substances. I do not have the competency or ethical or legal ability to advise you on the use or risks of any particular substance. Thank you!
NOTICE: Before you read any further, please know that I do not provide the following services due to ethical, legal, and training reasons: -I do not provide sitting services -I do not recommend illegal substances for you to use -I do not supply you with substances -I do not give you information about how illegal substances may impact you Therefore, please do not message me about any of the above things! Thank you. I DO offer post-trip integration for those people who aware of the risks and making their own decisions to use psychedelic substances independently. I specialize in helping people make meaning from altered states of consciousness as it relates to an overarching healing and personal and spiritual growth journey. I use substance-free altered states of consciousness in the therapy work that I do. If this interests you, please read on. Hi, I'm Emma! I'm the founder of Alternative Therapy STL. I help curious, introspective, and holistically-minded young people in their 20s and 30s to heal past wounds and grow into their best selves with a transpersonal approach. I have been all over the world (32 countries to be exact) studying psychology, culture, philosophy, and spirituality. Ask me about the 18 months I spent working at a mindfulness center in Thailand, becoming an advanced yoga instructor in India, or completing IFS therapy training in Spain! After traveling around the world and learning both eastern and western methods for healing, I founded Alternative Therapy STL to bring holistic and transpersonal therapy to the midwest. Being a therapist is more than a "job" for me, it's a calling. I'm excited to help you become more conscious, get to know yourself more deeply, and transform. **Note: please read my entire profile before contacting me to understand the way that I work and the services I provide.
