The Existential Humanistic Institute offers ongoing existential-humanistic therapy consultation groups for licensed/pre-licensed professionals via Zoom led by EHI Instructors.  Consultation focuses on cases that illustrate the existential-humanistic orientation to therapeutic practice. These groups are an opportunity to explore how therapeutic orientations are enhanced by incorporating existential and humanistic perspectives.

EHI’s Consultation Groups

EHI’s Consultation Groups are intended to give participants hands-on experiential opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of how to work with clients from an E-H perspective. Each group is facilitated by two EHI instructors who serve as the group leaders. Leaders emphasize effective relational and experiential techniques that enable genuine encounters and real therapeutic change.

In each group participants focus on:

  • Cultivating clients’ personal and relational presence
  • Tracking and reflecting clients’ process
  • Mirroring and resolving clients’ problematic protective patterns.


By role-playing clients we gain depth to our understanding of:

  • Their self and world constructs.
  • How their protective patterns may trigger the therapist.
  • How to work with the therapist’s personal contexts to resolve therapeutic impasses.

Professional and Supportive Group Environment

Participants present cases in a safe and supportive environment. The group leaders assist the group to not only understand the complexities and nuances of the suffering of the client but also the challenges to the therapist to effect change.

Our E-H Consultation Group Facilitators

Sonja Saltman, LMFTis a co-founder of EHI, serves as EHI’s Communication Director, and is an EHI Core Instructor.

Bonnie Rose, LMFT, is in private practice, serves as an EHI board member-at-large, and is an EHI Affiliate Instructor and an experienced group leader.


The consultation program is open to licensed/pre-licensed clinical professionals who seek to work experientially on cases and enhance their clinical skills. We like to connect those who are new to EHI with one of the group facilitators prior to enrollment.
