About Us

Transformational Studies Institute is a twenty five years established institute that offers counseling and educational classes. Both of these aspects of TSI are innovative and cutting edge. TSI is one of the first places in the west to establish a body-mind approach using inner awareness and delving into the unconscious as a source of personal growth.

TSI has taught thousands of people how to become their inner authority. This self empowerment is accomplished through teaching practical tools that can be used in everyday life. These tools enhance mind-body-spirit aspects of a person. 

Meditation, inner self dialogue, family of origin, imagery, inner child work, are just a few of the experiential techniques taught in counseling and classes. These techniques have been tested over time to reduce stress and increase inner peace and satisfaction in life.

Depression, anxiety, and emotional instability are all reduced by these daily practices. The classes at TSI help to improve self confidence, communication, and relationships in participant’s life. Twenty years of evaluation, by our students and clients, show the effectiveness of these classes that  teach life changing tools rather than just cope with debilitating habits and unconscious patterns.

TSI’s group and individual therapy are run by experienced Master Degree Level psychotherapists and counselors teaching clients the tools to deal with stress, addiction, codependency, self-regulation, impulsive behaviors, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma, divorce, children and family issues.
