Jamie Kohanyi, LMFT#83775

Practitioner Information
Description of Services

My name is Jamie Kohanyi and I meet with the psyche (soul) of those with whom I work through conscious conversation and the engagement of non-ordinary consciousness through dreamwork, active imagination, prayer, art, music and ritual. I’ve also been trained and certified by Psychedelic Research and Training Institute (PRATI) allowing for me to provide legal ketamine assisted psychotherapy in collaboration with Daydream MD.

I received my masters degree from Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Counseling Psychology where my training in mythology, archetypes, and depth psychology benefited from the wisdom of its supporters and founders including Joseph Campbell, Marion Woodman, James Hillman, and Thomas Moore. I am also honored to hold a certificate from the CG Jung Institute of Los Angeles and The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology founded by psychedelic pioneers Robert Frager and James Fadiman.

From both a depth and transpersonal orientation, suffering commonly called anxiety, depression, addiction, or compulsion all express an unmet want or need that is often buried in the psyche (soul). These unconscious longings reveal themselves in our language, dreams, and images but also through unwanted symptoms. Part of the task of therapy is unearthing these hidden yearnings and discovering ways to integrate these subconscious desires in a whole-some way.

Many significant events in people’s lives that lead to upsetting symptoms happened before they had words or were so traumatic and wounding, they couldn’t be captured in language. Most of the people I work with come to realize they have been expressing themselves through eating disorders, addictions, and compulsive behaviors until psychotherapy gave them a new way to talk about, tolerate, or transform their experience.

With these limitations of language in mind, I was trained and received a certificate through The Sky Mountain Institute in Expressive Arts Therapy and Ecopsychology which focuses on what creativity and creation have to teach us about ourselves and reality.

My most foundational training in caring for the soul was through music and I have a bachelors degree from Berklee College of Music where my principal instrument was the human voice.

The areas of healing most calling to my attention at this time include maternal wellness, marriage enrichment, body image, eating disorders, and relational trauma.

I am a mother of three and wife to psychotherapist David Kohanyi. I look forward to meeting you.
