Jace Langone, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist 

Not accepting new clients at this time.

I practice Spiritually-Integrated Psychotherapy, offering a space to explore how conflicts between one’s core values and actual life experience can hinder psychological well-being. I find inspiration in Humanistic and Transpersonal theories, and integrate various evidenced-based modalities, providing an eclectic, individualized treatment lens. My nearly decade-long practice in pastoral counseling, ongoing apprenticeships in Dreamshadow Transpersonal Breathwork and the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, and training in assimilating religio-spiritual practices into psychotherapy have allowed me to offer a therapeutic approach appreciative of wisdom traditions from around the world.

 

Grounded in the American folk psychology tradition, I encourage exploring personal meaning through a compassionate, paradoxical lens whereby shadow and light are held as equally potent and generative qualities of the same experience. My approach is akin to an experiential mysticism that has shaped the American experiment from its very beginning—a proverbial frontier that pushes the margins of experience and understanding beyond the allure of certainty, stagnation. By this frame, meaning is as courageously sought as it is surrendered, inviting your cooperation into the mysterious, creative potential by which you are alive.

 

Complementing a conversational approach to therapy whereby an emerging therapeutic friendship is the means of treatment, I also offer a variety of experiential interventions, such as focusing and guided imagery, various meditative and contemplative practices, shamanic drumming and divination, mandala drawing, and communing with nature, that empower by amplifying the perspective by which one’s life events are beheld. My clinical focus is in the treatment of trauma, major life adjustments, phase of life transitions, aging and life review, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, personal crises, and integrating exceptional states of consciousness. For a more in-depth perspective regarding my professional background and clinical practice, please visit www.drjacelangone.com.
