Six Week Series – Afternoons

If you experience feelings of anxiety, depression, impulsivity, cravings or traumatic response, this prescriptive 6-week series is for you. We are a small and supportive group, joining together to explore how to connect with, embrace and ultimately heal all parts of ourselves, even those parts that we may label as harmful or undesirable. Through meditation, movement, mantra and music, we will create a psychological momentum to boost your energies toward stability and mastery. Yes. Believe it. And this prescription can fully supplement your program of traditional medicine or work as a primary holistic intervention for psychological health. Welcome!

She has been practicing psychology with individuals, families and groups for more than 25 years in Colorado, Oregon, and Virginia. Debra is the owner of Dharmatherapies, an outpatient clinical psychotherapy and yoga practice in Roanoke, Virginia. She completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2014 at Uttara Studio under Jill Loftis (Kriya yoga) and Katie Silcox (Sri-Vidya Tantra / Ayurveda); she has since trained in restorative, contemplative and devotional yoga.

She describes herself as an “acoustic historian,” forever curious about the personal narration of music and song that we use to create and define ourselves across the year.
