The Sage Approach


Hi, I’m Melissa Kinney, LCSW, psychotherapist and founder of Smiling Sage. The Sage approach bridges Western Psychology with Eastern Wisdom traditions to support your whole being. Walking this therapeutic path is a sacred journey and I am honored to support you in it. Spiritual Psychology looks at the whole person; from the mental, physical, creative, intellectual and spiritual, and draws from your own unique experience and callings. Transpersonal Psychology, Spiritual Psychology, and PsychoSpiritual Therapy are all names for the therapeutic process that focuses on improving mental health while also incorporating a more holistic point of view with an emphasis on a healthy spirit for healing. 

“If you know how to suffer, you suffer less."
