Yarah is a very powerful and intuitive healer in the Bay Area. I am a Massage Therapist and Healer myself, and she gives the best massage so I only try to see her when I need a session! She seems to know exactly where to go and which way to stretch me that will feel really good. The results always seem to last for a while too. My favorite session was when she gave me a massage, then a sugar scrub, then wrapped me up like a mummy and guided me through a blissful journey, it was one of the best days of my life. This was on my wedding day, but she played a huge part in making my day the best it could be. Her knowledge of the body and the energy system makes these sessions in depth and work on all levels: emotionally, physically, spiritually and physically.
Andri supported me during a very difficult time in my life while I was going through divorce and major career change. We had sessions over the course of a year. During that time she helped me: - emotionally go through the divorce and release guilt, shame, anger and lots of other emotoins that were blocking my mind and ability to feel joy - see that I had the right to dream a better life for me and my 2 boys and I was not "crazy" for asking more from life - understand the human basic needs which go so much beyond human survival. This brought peace in me and my relationship with my boys. The most important part was that I understood their need for love and certainty and how I can provide that to them even though I see them a few days per month - make better decisions for my company. I used to take most things emotionally and sometimes my decisions were not serving everyone. Now I use emotions and instincts to set a path, and use logic to decide on the steps. I now experience less stress and make less "mistakes" - understand why I need to value myself first and how this allows me to be strong for others I can go and on. In a nutshell, she helped me shift my perspective about dreams and passions and what is possible to achieve in life. Nothing can really hold you back. It is about the clarity you have and the decisions you make.
I hired Meaghan 6 months ago for personal yoga sessions 2X per week. She is amazing! Yoga is my only form of exercise, so my weight loss expectations were minimal. However, she extended our sessions beyond yoga and gave me advice on my eating habits and ways to rev up my metabolism. I've lost almost 20 lbs thanks to her guidance and continue to get that lean, toned body I always wanted. Her sessions aren't just exercise for your body: she incorporates mindfulness into her practice and encourages personal and emotional growth. I am so happy to have found her.
A great experience. We recommend Krista to anyone who's looking for Marriage and Family Therapy services.
Kavita is my therapist, and I am so lucky that I found her because my life is transforming in ways I never could have imagined. I found her through a series of unexpected events. Long story short, I ran into an old friend, joined him for dinner with another friend of his, and his friend recommended Kavita based on something I said in passing. I'm so glad. I hate to think about where I would be now if I hadn't found her. I've seen therapists before, but it wasn't the same. I think that's because Kavita does way more than "talk therapy," and I feel like that's magically changing my brain. She also made a referral to a great couples therapist for my partner and I. All in all, life is looking so much better than it ever has before. If you're looking for a really intelligent, compassionate, and creative therapist who will help you change your life, reach out to Kavita.

I use the five layers or sheaths called Koshas that Yoga believes the self comprises of. The physical body that most consider to be the self is only the most dense layer. Subtler than that is the energy or pranic layer. Then comes the emotional-mental layer also seen by some as colors corresponding to different feelings. The intellectual/intuitive or the wisdom layer is next, more subtle and more expansive than the prior three and encompassing them too. Finally the bliss layer is the most subtle of all and it encompasses all the other layers and extends over and beyond them.
Deep within each one of us is a vast intelligence that moves us toward wholeness. I am continually in awe of how effectively this guides the healing and awakening process once we learn how to listen to the dreams, feelings, body sensations, and life challenges that give clues as to where the healing wants to go next. My work as a therapist is to create a safe, supportive space for clients to open up, experience life as it is right now, and explore whatever is calling out for attention from within ourselves or from outer challenges. Often, we may need to make detours into past traumas that prevent a full surrender into the present. As old griefs, traumas, hurts, and losses are embraced and healed, inevitably, clients drop into the deepest grief of all: the abandonment of oneself. As this is grieved, then the unique expression of the essence of that person can be freed up to participate fully in life, to blossom like a flower. As French author Anais Nin wrote, The day will come when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." This work is empowering to my clients as they connect with a flow of healing and transformation from within themselves, and learn new tools for living more fully: tools that they can carry into their lives long after our time together has passed. I have been a psychotherapist for over 35 years. During that time, I have helped clients with a wide range of issues. I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client's individual needs; my clients and I work together to address their goals and concerns, whether they are current life challenges or longstanding issues. I specialize in working with grief. Over a lifetime, we will experience many losses, not just the loss of loved ones, but the loss of a marriage, health, a job, our dreams, or a child when he or she goes off to college. Each one of us will be called on at different times to face losses, but will we embrace it or shrink from it? Most of us shrink from a loss, thinking that if we just keep busy, we can close our hearts a little to protect ourselves from loss. However, it is ungrieved loss that takes a toll on our hearts and deadens us to life. We pay a price in terms of our vitality, happiness and health. I offer unique and effective strategies for grieving fully without feeling overwhelmed. This includes experiential exercises for exploring the ongoing inner relationship with a deceased loved one. I have a masters degree in counseling psychology from the University of Santa Clara and a license in the state of California (since 1976) as a marriage and family therapist. I am the author of two books on grief: Losing a Parent and The Infinite Thread: Healing Relationships Beyond Loss. I have taught at University of California Extension, Santa Cruz, the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, and John F. Kennedy University. I have trained in the following: * Grief work with Stephen Levine * Family therapy with Virginia Satir and John Krop * Art therapy with Janie Rhyne * Dream work with James Hillman, Alice Howell and Charles Ponce * Women's sexuality with Lonnie Barbach * Bioenergetics with Michael Conant and others at the Northern California Bioenergetic Institute My 35-year meditation practice (mostly Buddhist) has enriched and deepened my approach to psychotherapy; this has enabled me to bring compassion, humor, patience, spaciousness, and balance into the therapeutic relationship. My teachers include Stephen Levine, Jack Kornfield, Goenka, Ruth Denison, among many others. I consider it an honor and a privilege to work with clients in this journey of healing, transformation and self-discovery. What rich resources for coming into our wholeness lie within each one of us, just waiting to be tapped!
