Comprehensive Holistic Wellness Evaluations (90 min): ONLINE or in-person at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA. Comprehensive Evaluations are an inquiry into a client's spiritual, emotional, and physical symptoms of imbalance (or dis-ease) and also a look at the individual's positive indicators of health, wellness, and joy. As mentioned on the "About" page, I do address some general medical conditions holistically, as a consultant only. (Seeing me is NOT a replacement for medical care with a primary care physician.) Mind and body are connected, and I enjoy trying to help people achieve health on ALL levels. Evaluations include typed or written recommendations (emailed within a week of the session), including diet, herbal, and behavioral suggestions.
Focused Integrative Psychiatry Evaluation (60 min): a more specifically-focused holistic psychiatry evaluation offered in-person at the Chopra Center & online. Due to the more time-limited nature of this session, this evaluation is limited more specifically to a certain issue or problem the client wants to address, generally with a psychiatric/psychologic or emotional component. I
Personalized Ayurvedic Diet/Lifestyle Consultation (60 min): at the Chopra Center and ONLINE. I am a certified Perfect Health Ayurvedic educator with the Chopra Center. I am also one of their staff physicians for the renown Perfect Health program. I have expertise helping people figure out their Ayurvedic dosha (primary constitutional type) and doshic imbalances, which I then address with dosha-balancing diets, herbs, behavioral practices, and more.
Intuitive Astrology Sessions (Tropical/Western Astrology): 60 minute, 90 minute, and custom length ONLINE or in-person at the Chopra Center. Astrology options include natal charts, current transits (predictive astrology), relationship compatibility, and relocation/travel astrology (often not all in one reading, however). I have been studying astrology for close to 18 years and incorporating my unique readings into my work with clients over the past 8 years. Sessions include a chart PDF and digital session recording.
Holistic Health/Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coaching Sessions (ONLINE/PHONE only): geared towards emotionally-stable individuals who want to live more healthy, creative, and inspired lives. In coaching the focus moves away from specific medical or psychologic issues towards an emphasis on general health and spiritual wellbeing (no diagnosis and treatment of specific medical/psychological conditions). Coaching sessions involve a combination of diet, exercise, supplements, meditation, goal setting, and accountability. My coaching work is well-suited for psychologically-stable clients who want to focus on living lives they love, finding their optimal path or work in the world, improving general wellness, working on specific goals or skills (such as weight loss, work productivity, exercise, meditation, or yoga), and/or developing spiritually.
Integrative Psychotherapy and Mixed-Modality Sessions: the ongoing follow-up sessions I offer. Depending on the case, a patient/client may receive relatively standard psychotherapy or something a bit more eclectic, such as sound healing, art therapy , energy work, meditation instruction, nutritional adjustment, personalized herbal remedy recommendations, health coaching, yoga instruction, astrology reading, etc. For most individuals therapy (or coaching) is the foundation of each session, but additional healing services are woven in as needed or desired.
Integrative Medicine Professional Mentorship: 1:1 ONLINE program in professional development (mentorship) for medical students, residents, psychotherapists, and practicing physicians. Students will receive an abbreviated holistic health (coaching-style) evaluation, set professional and personal goals, and receive personal health coaching as well as directed teaching along an organized curriculum of holistic health topics. We cover a new topic each session (including "Female Health", "Digestive Health", "Neurological Health", "Aches and Pains", "Adrenal Support", "Digestion", and more). Homework, case studies, and case reviews are included.
Personalized Intensive Healing Retreats (for individuals, groups, couples): I welcome out-of-town patients who wish to do a lot of work in a short amount of time to join me for a personalized, intensive (2-5 hours a day, 2-5 days in a row) retreat focused on one or several issues. Previous clients have addressed self-esteem, depression, eating disorders, relationships, trauma, and family dynamics/forgiveness in retreats. Retreats happen in conjunction with the La Costa Resort & Spa. Contact me directly to plan a 1:1 personalized retreat or to build a semi-custom retreat in conjunction with a Chopra Center program (such as "Perfect Health" ). Additional details about my custom retreat work can also be found on my Hawaii retreat website www.manamedicine.com .
