Exciting News! RMHCPA Building Update

RMHCPA Members and Supporters,

It has been an exciting year for the Rocky Mountain Humanistic Counseling and Psychological Association! Earlier this month, we announced that RMHCPA was selected to host the Fourth World Congress of Existential Therapy June 3-6, 2026. Today, we have even bigger news! As of yesterday, we are officially under contract to purchase a building! If all goes well, we will be closing on the building and moving into our new space in mid-July. In the coming months, we plan to have many events celebrating the opening of the new building. These events will be live with some also having a virtual option. It is our intention that this building becomes an essential home for humanistic, existential, and transpersonal psychology. We hope that all of you will come to feel a connection with this new space.

As we have shared over the last couple of years as we have been working toward this goal, the building will house:

1) The RMHCPA Clinic, which will be a practicum site
2) The International Archives of Existential and Humanistic Psychology
3) The International Archives of Transpersonal Psychology
4) A premiere existential, humanistic, and transpersonal psychology library
5) Private practice offices for humanistic, existential, and transpersonal psychologists.

To actualize all of these potentials, we will need help from the humanistic community. We have set a goal of raising $250,000 through grant writing and fundraising over the next 3-years. This is an ambitious goal, but we are confident that we are up to the task–with your support!

There are various ways that you can help. If you have experience with grant writing, you could volunteer to help us write some of our grants. We will be looking for grants to 1) upgrade the building to ADA compliance, 2) remodel the space that will become the RMHCPA archives, 3) financially support the RMHCPA Clinic, and 4) expand our library and archives. You can also support us through financial contributions. We hope to increase our monthly donations by $1,000. Even a donation of $10 or $25 a month can help us meet this goal. You can sign up for monthly donations at https://www.pledge.to/rmhcpa-building-fund. We will continue to be seeking larger donations as well. With larger donations or monthly donations over a period of time, you will have opportunities to be recognized as a supporter of RMHCPA on our website and in the archives itself.

We hope all of you will have a chance to visit us in our new space over the next year!

RMHCPA to Host the Fourth World Congress of Existential Therapy, June 3-6, 2026

The Rocky Mountain Humanistic Counseling and Psychological Association (RMHCPA) will be the official host of the Fourth World Congress of Existential Therapy, which will be held in Aurora/Denver, Colorado, from June 3-6, 2026. The Congress will be chaired by Louis Hoffman, Nathaniel Granger, Jr., H, Luis Vargas, and Lisa Xochitl Vallejos. A dedicated and talented Steering Committee will be an important part of the planning process.

The first three Congresses have been extremely successful events, drawing in hundreds of existential therapists. The 2023 Congress had over 550 attendees and presenters from many countries around the world. RMHCPA is committed to building upon the success of the first two Congresses to make the Fourth World Congress of Existential Therapy another successful event that helps advance existential therapy and bolster the impact that existential psychology has on the world.
