open your heart and create your path



I’m Dr. Tina Chadda, a psychiatrist, physician, parent, teacher, and psychotherapist.
I combine the science of the West and its best practices with spirituality, mindfulness, and positive psychology to help you discover new ways to create a heart-mind centered Foundation for Living. The combination of traditional practices infused with fresh insight into the intricacies of the human soul provides a potent vehicle for transformation. This powerful merging of the conscious with the unconscious offers a rich and uniquely personalized path to fulfillment, contentment and happiness.
I hope you take time for yourself to browse through this site, read a blog or two, learn about self-discovery and even try out one of my recipes inspired by past wellness retreat adventures to Italy. The important thing is to take time for yourself, open your heart and create your path.

True healing is a transformative process that picks up where successful medical treatment leaves off. You must actively pursue it. Because the fullness of our lives is experienced in the heart, the active pursuit of happiness and healing must be heart-focused.
