Ayurveda & Holistic Wellness Services
Ayurveda is a 'sister science' to yoga. Ayurveda is an ancient wisdom tradition that teaches us that we are unique beings and when we understand our unique qualities and align them with natural rhythms and cycles of life, we can achieve optimal health. Ayurveda is entirely holistic and teaches us that we are a unique biological, psychological and social force. It offers tools for assessment and understanding of our unique mind, body emotion type and it offers us tools for action to establish mind, body & life balance, harmony and optimal health. In our Ayurveda services you will learn what foods balance your uniques constitution and support healthy energy, you will learn how to improve digestion of not only food but also of thoughts and emotions, and you will learn to adapt your nutrition and health practices for the seasons and thru the demands of life. There are no broad strokes of "good & bad" foods in Ayurveda- it takes into consideration you, and what is best and works for you.
Parent consultation is a non-judgmental, collaborative session with the goal of helping you the parent, feel more equipped to successfully navigate this time in your child’s life. Parent Consultation is designed to address your concerns about your tween or teens mood, behavior and mental health. We will discuss effective parenting strategies, healthy and productive communication patterns that will work best with your unique child. I will help identify dynamics contributing to your tween and teens behavior and offer practical solutions to restore healthy communication, and create a more peaceful home. ***You can use this appointment wether I see your child or not. This is for you, the parent. I will equip you with strategies that will work for you and with your child so you feel more empowered to help them even if you don't totally understand what they are going thru. It is not uncommon for tweens and teens to be less than forthcoming with their private concerns, but you will then have some tools to offer support for their well-being. Sometimes a consultation is all that you need and you are able to resolve the difficulties on your own. If additional support is needed, recommendations, resources and referrals will be provided. Every parent needs a village, I am in your village to help.
