Logotherapy and Existential Analysis (LTEA) was founded by Viktor E. Frankl, MD, PhD (1905-1997).

LTEA helps individuals alleviate existential suffering through searching for meaning in their lives improving their quality of life and sense of well-being . By mobilizing the capacities of the human spirit the person can respond to the tragic triad of human existence (pain, guilt, and loss) by living universal values (creative, experiential and attitudinal).

LTEA is applied as a complement to other psychotherapy modalities to alleviate the existential suffering derived from physical illnesses and mental disorders such as Anxiety, Depression, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

LTEA therapeutic process starts with developing an Existential Conceptualization to better understand the client’s presentation and establish meaningful and purposeful goals.

LTEA consists of meaning centered interventions with specific experiential exercises (methods) tailored for each client’s specific circumstances. Evaluation of progress is gathered throughout the therapeutic process.

LTEA has been applied to other disciplines including education, existential coaching, and spiritual direction.

LTEA has been empirically validated by clinical research findings published in peer reviewed literature.
