About Us

Welcome from Mary Roberson, Ph.D.  Thank you for visiting the website of the former Ayurveda Center for Natural Healthcare, established in 1998, where we used to offer all kinds of holistic health services, education, and events.  I have sold the Center building, however, my individual clinical office is still located in the same place. I still offer Ayurvedic consultations and psychotherapy services.

In the world of Ayurveda and other practices based in the Vedic sciences, there is an emerging specialty called Vedic Counseling.  It includes Ayurveda, counseling, yoga in the larger sense, meditation, pranayama, vastu, jyotish, and more.  The primary purpose of Vedic Counseling is to support people to (1) achieve health and balance:  mind, body and spirit; (2) find their purpose in life, their dharma; and (3) prevent future health and life difficulties, their karma.  In short, I hope to facilitate the journey of seekers so that they can live in alignment with their own spiritual center and with all that surrounds them.

In light of this slight change of emphasis (and the fact that I am solo now – not a Center), I have renamed my business “The Vedic Counselor.”  I am in the process of creating a new web site: theVedicCounselor.com   I hope to have it up and running toward the end of 2017.  In the meantime I will continue to offer psychotherapy services until 2020 or so.

If you are interested in having services from me, you can give a call at 865-482-0981; email at AyurvedaCenterTN@bellsouth.net; sign up for my newsletter (link) [I send less than one email per month and if you do not want to continue receiving the newsletter, it is easy to unsubscribe]; or watch for my website theVedicCounselor.com  to be completed.

Many blessings!
