Ayurvedic Psychology

Ananda therapy looks at life from the perspective of Ayurveda, the science of life.  Ayurveda encourages us to take responsibility for our own health and learn to recognize that which is good for our unique constitution, and that which is not.


Ananda means "bliss" in Sanskrit, the ancient language from the Vedas. Debbie addresses the mind, body, and spirit, with particular attention focused on the mind.  Imbalances are addressed by examining how life is being perceived by the client, through examining thoughts, intake of the 5 senses, family, environment, and cultural influences.  

We have come so far in so many ways as a modern culture, but human consciousness is often missing. Ayurveda has a blueprint to navigate this often mysterious part of our collective evolution.  Through right diet, right actions, and conscious awareness of our place in the universe, we can begin to see why we are here, and find the meaning that we are meant to have in our lives, feel the joy that we are meant to feel, and bear through our suffering with more ease.

Group therapy and individual therapy are available.  आनन्द

The time will come
When with elation
You will greet yourself arriving at your own door in your own mirror and each will smile at the other's welcome and say sit here, eat

you will love again the stranger who was yourself
