Meet Dina

 

My intention is to inspire others to create deeper self-awareness. Meeting with clients one-on-one and working together to facilitate healing is my passion.

 

As a young woman living in New Jersey in the late 80s I was always fascinated with the vibrant energy of New York City. I would go into the city often and visit the many herb and gem shops in Greenwich Village. I spent hours reading books and felt a resonance with the art of holistic healing. I allowed my inner voice to guide me and read books like "Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain and "The Tibetan Book Of The Dead". I attended healing fairs and immersed myself in the philosophies of spiritual wellness.

In 1994 I made a move to Northern California where I was able to deepen my education in the healing arts. After the birth of my first child, I studied planetary herbalism with Michael and Leslie Tierra and Christopher Hobbs. I immersed myself in learning about flower essences, herbs, homeopathy, nutrition, yoga and meditation and used these modalities as my family's main source of medicine.

In 2001, my husband and I began operating an arts and entertainment production company. I worked closely with artists and musicians, producing one-of-a-kind events. I enjoyed the rich diversity of the people and the shows and I developed an intimate understanding of the needs of creative individuals. Leading an artistic life has always been my focus.

After more than a dozen years in entertainment production, I made a decision to return to my roots in the healing arts. In 2016, I completed the Bach flower essence international practitioner course and I'm currently in the process of completing my certification in Narrative Health Coaching at Teleosis Institute in Berkeley CA., approved by the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching (ICHW).

I continue to learn from wise women and men and participate in communities of like-minded souls that support me in my practice.
