The Cook Awakening


Sometimes life hands you intolerable circumstances. It can be hard to know what to do, how to respond. You may find yourself in resistance, just wishing it would stop, that your situation and/or your feelings would just go away.

What if I told you that:

༄ your resistance could be making things worse?

༄ you could find a way to face your life with love and compassion for yourself and those around you, and move forward with all the inner strength you may feel is eluding you?

༄ you may have more resources available to you than you know?

༄ you could learn concrete skills to help you navigate what feels impossible?

Together we will explore your:

    ༄ personal well-being and spiritual practice definition and goals

    ༄ in-depth history that has led to your current situation

    ༄ needs for making self-acceptance and change sustainable

    ༄ living situation as it pertains to supporting self-care and spiritual practice

    ༄ options for creating practices and action steps to support you on your healing journey

Living with grief is hard. Living with the hard truths of our world, both personal and on a larger scale can feel impossible. You deserve support on that journey.

Lights of Intention

Counseling helps shine the light on a confusing, often unconscious process.


“Durga is a powerful, connected and intuitive healer.

From a place of deep sensitivity and awareness she gracefully steps into her work as a counselor. In sessions with her, I feel comforted and supported in a way that allows me to be in touch with the more difficult and vulnerable parts of myself that need some attention.

She is spiritual in a very flexible way that supports me in tapping into my own mysterious power. Our work together guides me on the path of being my most authentic self and expanding energetically in ways that were difficult for me to previously imagine.

Durga is a true gem of a human being.
