Counseling, Couples Therapy, and Ayurveda Therapies
Psychotherapy Sessions for Individuals and Couples: I believe that there is meaning and purpose to our suffering and with the facilitation of a trained therapist one can find support to move through challenging times, misunderstandings, and crisis. Therapy is also for those who sense that there is more to life. It can help to discover and unfold the person’s full potential and to find meaning and spark a sense of aliveness.

Ayurvedic Support for Grief: Ayurveda offers a traditional support treatment to assist in healing the emotional heart from loss, life transitions, and mourning. Grief, different than depression is usually associated with the loss of a loved one, home, health, job, or pet. Ayurveda offers a body and vibrational treatment traditionally called hrdya basti or heart basti which is a dough dam placed over the heart chakra and filled with herbalized oil that contains Ashoka herb, rose, and Arjuna herb. The oil helps to absorb stress and assists the release of sadness and grief. The basti is preceded by transdermal marma therapy and emotional coaching called sattvavijaya, which is an Ayurvedic term in Sanskrit which means overcoming darkness with the light of consciousness. This treatment does not claim to cure grief but offers compassionate support in the process of it, to help the heavy emotions move along, and possibly lessen the weight of the emotions. This treatment can also help with depression. Time of treatment: 90 minutes. Cost of treatment: $225 and comes with a bottle of transdermal marma oil to use at home in between sessions. Or 2nd option: $325 which would also include a month supply of herbal formulas to further support the mind and emotions. Several sessions are recommended over a three month period.
