Your food & lifestyle is your pharmacy
AYURVEDIC LIFESTYLE CONSULTING
I offer one-on-one Ayurveda Lifestyle & Wellness Consulting to help you achieve a more optimal state of being. By examining and making incremental changes in foundational areas of your life – primarily diet, daily routines, and stress management – I can guide you to experience better digestion, deeper sleep, a calmer mind and noticeably higher levels of energy and vitality.
When you meet with me, you will receive personalized insights into your own health, with specific recommendations tailored to your habits and lifestyle. Many of my clients come to me after doing a basic online “dosha quiz,” and I can help you confirm the accuracy of your results, what they really mean and how you can take strategic action to make impactful changes in your life.
My approach to Ayurveda is one that is:
Incremental – I give you a few targeted suggestions after each session so that you’re not overwhelmed with a sense that you have to make a complete life overhaul. By making small changes over time, you’re more likely to succeed long-term in meeting whatever goals we establish together.
Understandable – I aim to share the basic why behind my recommendations so that you can begin to identify and adjust patterns you notice in your own life.
Fun – As a patient of many Ayurvedic doctors over the years, I believe that Ayurveda is most effective when approached in a way that is light-hearted, inspiring and joyful. I won’t bog you down with too many Sanskrit words, heady explanations or do-or-die suggestions. I respect a lifestyle of moderation over one governed by hard-and-fast rules.
Because Ayurveda is an incremental science, I meet with most clients for a minimum of 3–5 sessions over 3–6 months, with many electing to do more intensive packages where we can meet more frequently. Initial intake sessions are generally 90 minutes, and follow-up sessions are 60 minutes, unless otherwise prescribed.
By meeting across multiple sessions, you will notice the greatest results, although stand-alone intake sessions are sometimes possible, depending on my availability. For package pricing and to schedule your first session, please contact me.
I meet with people in-person at my office in North Bend, WA. I also meet with people worldwide face-to-face using the Zoom conferencing platform. Local clients are able to elect whether sessions following the initial intake are in-person or virtual. Prior to your initial session, I will provide you with an extensive intake form for completion, due back to me at least 48 hours before we meet.
I accept payment by credit card, cash and via PayPal. Packages must be paid for prior to the first session unless otherwise arranged – ask me if a payment plan is needed. You are responsible for notifying me of any reschedule requests or cancellations at least 24 hours prior to a session. Any missed sessions with less than 24 hours advanced notice will be deducted from your package balance. For stand-alone appointments, payment is non-refundable if less than 24 hours notice is given.
My adventure into the Ayurvedic lifestyle and medicine began in 2013 when I travelled to and spent a month in India, the motherland of Ayurveda, and I’ve been a student and lover of it ever since. I have specialized my studies in a specific “feminine form” Ayurveda lineage through Katie Silcox’s Shakti School, where I am part of a 1,008 hour yogini mentorship program that includes Ayurveda (which I received my certification as an Ayurvedic Counselor), yoga philosophy, practices and tantra. I have also offered introductions to Ayurveda at various corporate locations and at local area workshops. As a worldwide traveler, I organize and lead Ayurvedic and wellness adventure retreats to India, the US and around the world!
