What is this blog about?

This blog was created by Dr. Sari Roth-Roemer as a forum for discussion on intuitive psychology, where body, mind and spirit are fully considered in treating the overall health of an individual through learning to listen to our own valuable intuition. This blog was created to share and grow this new paradigm through dialogue with others. The old Blogspot blog wouldn’t allow your comments, so this new blog was created. I would really love to hear your comments. The book is on it’s way!

What is Intuitive Psychology?

Simply put, intuitive psychology is all about learning how to listen more clearly to our inner wisdom to find our own answers and choose our own unique paths towards balance in our life. Integrating multiple psychological theories, including cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, existential and mindfulness approaches, intuitive psychology adds a broader mind-body-spirit context. Intuitive psychology examines the role of intuition and spirituality in health and well-being and addresses strategies for teaching people how to harness their own intuition and find their own answers. Intuitive psychology suggests that intuition is an important precursor to thoughts, happening quickly and primarily beyond our consciousness. Intuitive Psychology allows us to successfully know the now. As we become aware of our own intuition, that inner voice that connects us to something greater than ourselves, we learn to make better choices about what to do with our thoughts, our judgments, and our perspectives, and ultimately how to positively impact our mind, body and spirit.

Who is Sari Roth-Roemer, Ph.D.?

I am a licensed medical psychologist and the director of   Intuitive Psychology, PLC  (http://www.intuitivepsychologyplc.com) in Scottsdale, AZ. I am the founder of Intuitive Psychology Innovations, a new institute for the development of intuitive psychology theory, research, and practice (www.intuitivepsychologyinnovations.com). I have been an adjunct professor at Arizona State University supervising and teaching psychology doctoral students studying behavioral medicine since 1998. With a name that’s almost too long to pronounce, at work they call me “Dr. R&R”, a wonderful double-entendre reminding us all to have fun.

I received my training at Harvard University (M.Ed.), Arizona State University (Ph.D.) and University of Washington School of Medicine (fellowship in behavioral medicine). My clinical and research work over the last 20 years has focused on helping adults and older adults handle the challenges of physical illness, aging, brain injury, and chronic pain through integrative psychological interventions.

I am now exploring the role of intuition and spirituality in the psychological healing process, as well as the practical application of recent scientific evidence linking mindful awareness and consciousness to neural network changes in the brain. I feel lucky to get to do the work I do every day.  I began this blog in an effort to develop this emerging area of intuitive psychology through dialogue with others…and I couldn’t be having any more fun doing it! I am excited about the new neuroscientific research showing the positive changes in the brain that occur when we make purposeful efforts to live more mindful, positive, compassionate lives. Intuitive pioneers like Joan Borysenko, Judith Orloff, Rick Hanson and Dan Siegel have been inspirational to me. I believe that these new integrative psychological models are expanding our ability to improve our overall health and wellness on a personal, community and global level. I’d love to keep discussing this work with you. Will you join me in the conversation? Thanks for your input; it means the world to me.

So, please leave me your comments on the blog, I would really appreciate hearing your thoughts. How can we grow a paradigm without healthy discussion? If  you are  interested in working with me on the development of this emerging psychological frontier, please contact me. Just click on the “Contact Me” page to see where to find me. I’d love to talk with you more about it.

Be happy and well,

Sari Roth-Roemer, Ph.D.
