Wellness Consults



For years I kept my personal pursuits in the field of wellness separate from my practice as a psychotherapist. However, it has become increasingly clear in studies which measure happiness and longevity that a strong relationship exists between mental health and a healthy lifestyle. Each effecting the other.


As a daily practitioner of meditation since my 20's, I often rely on mindfulness skills to stay present with clients. my training in hatha yoga/meditation can be as useful as my degrees/credentials in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. Furthermore, through yoga I have developed the capacity to analyze breathing patterns and teach Pranayama techniques (controlled breathing) when appropriate which has produced rapid results in moving through anxiety and fear.

Mostly plant based for 30 years, I believe nutrient rich food can support healing of any kind. over the years in my work with clients areas of well-being have emerged repeatedly.

In 2010, i created a wellness guide: The Seven Petals to help coaching clients identify their imbalances and  adjust their attention for abundant peace and happiness.

1. Internal Cultivation- spiritual practice, prayer, yoga/meditation, meaningful reading, time in nature

2. Authentic relationships- we need a handful of people whom we trust and can be unfiltered with, unconditional Love :)

3. Exercise- our bodies need to move for optimal health, whether structured activity or walking, working outside, cleaning  

4. Whole Foods-artificial additives and preservatives are not food, a plant based diet with organic proteins (grass fed meat/low mercury fish) is proven to be most beneficial

5. Peaceful Home- to rejuvenate from a busy world our space should be calming, pleasant and void of Clutter, chemicals 

6. Creativity- if you have a job that you are passionate about, perfect! Otherwise we need to "tap into" your creativity: baking, painting, writing, decorating, gardening...

7. Preventative Health- homeopathy, functional medicine, healing foods and other therapies such as: massage, Ice/heat, chiropractic...


What do you need to feel balanced?
