Christie Zepeda is a certified Holistic Health and Wellness Coach who assists those who struggle with depression. Exercising the principles of Ayurveda (“science of living”), Yoga and Integrative Nutrition, she serves as a guide and supportive mentor, empowering clients to connect authentically with themselves, others, and the World around them.

Christie suffered her first major depressive episode at the age of 15. Major depression resurfaced again during the college years and lingered throughout her 20s prompting treatment with antidepressants (ADs). ADs, however, brought only minor and temporary relief. Christie’s healing journey really began with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and then in subsequent years: Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Diet Modification, Yoga, Meditation, and Ayurveda.

Since practicing a holistic approach to depression, and consequently realizing tremendous relief, it has become Christie’s personal “dharma” (“right way of living”) to impart the knowledge gained from personal experience, as well as diverse certifications in alternative healing, to guide others towards healthy mental health and wellness.

Christie is a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (IIN), Ayurveda Yoga Specialist (Himalayan Institute), 200-Hr Yoga Teacher (Sun and Moon Yoga Studio), Thai Yoga Therapist (Thai Institute of Healing Arts), and Reiki Master.

Today, Christie offers a wide range of programs and services- from individual coaching, to cooking demonstrations and Yoga and Ayurveda workshops.
