Kelly Bearer

Founder & Director

I’m an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist and the Founder and Director of the Boulder Hypnotherapy Institute. A graduate of Naropa University with an M.A. in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology, I have more than 16+ years of experience in the counseling field. My methodology includes Meta Hypnotherapy, Integral Theory, Transpersonal Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Subtle Energy, and Holistic Integrative healing techniques.

As a Senior Student of Ken Wilber and his Integral Theory, I am a published author in the Journal for Integral Theory and Practice. My article titled, “Toward an Integral Treatment Methodology for Schizophrenia”, was adapted from my Naropa University thesis research.

An ordained Zen Monk, my interests lie in exploring the intersection of spirituality and psychology, the ground where our healing journey begins.
