Psychotherapist - LPC
Andrea Shipley is an explorer of the external world as well as the internal world of consciousness. After years of self-healing and spiritual study, she began her healing career as a Massage Therapist in 2008. She soon came to understand that the physical ailments she was treating often stem from mental and spiritual factors, as well as the body, so she wanted to have a more holistic impact for her clients. This understanding led her to John F. Kennedy University to earn her Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology and she has since become a Licensed Professional Counselor, also providing Life Coaching in her private practice, Soul Explorations, LLC. Andrea’s Transpersonal practice is strongly influenced by Mindfulness, Expressive Arts, and Shamanism because she’s found that these holistic modalities help guide the individual to wake up from the limited self, which may be experiencing unbearable pain. The transpersonal approach aims to help the client understand oneself “beyond the personality,” which Andrea has experienced to be paramount for the growth and healing of many people.
