Let's get acquainted!
Hello, I am Jessica Ferrol, owner of Jessie's Whole-istic Care. My career and research is focused on the mind/body connection. My concentration is in Ayurvedic medicine, Yogic psychology, Holistic Mental Health Counseling, Hakomi and herbal medicine. These are lenses I use to understand the pathology of imbalance and to create a plan to return to equilibrium.
I am a certified Ayurvedic Doctor, level two Hakomi practitioner, certified yoga therapist, herbalist and I hold a Masters degree in Holistic Mental Health Counseling from Salve Regina University. I have been in private practice since 2003 supporting the community via Ayurvedic consultations, home made herbal formulations and workshops. I also work as a mental health counselor for an non-profit agency whose purpose is helping at-risk youths.
In 2001, I completed the 300 hour yoga teacher training at the America Yoga Academy. In 2003, I earned a dual certificate of graduation from California College of Ayurveda and the American Institute of Vedic Studies. I completed Kathy Keville's Herbal Apprenticeship program in 2004 and was a Master Teacher at the California College of Ayurveda for 13 years. I achieved my MA in holistic mental counseling in 2019. In April, 2019 I completed the level two training in Hakomi mindful somatic psychotherapy. Currently, I am working toward my RI mental health counseling license.
