Isha ~ Retreats

Private Customized Retreats with a Licensed Psychologist

Meditation ~ Dream work ~ Hiking ~ Fasting ~ Silence ~ Yoga


Private customized retreats with a licensed psychologist integrating a mind-body-spirit approach to health and healing.  I will meet you where you are psychologically to help you reach your goals (ie. release anxiety, learn deep relaxation, heal trauma, learn how to let go and work through experiences, emotional release, increase your physical wellbeing, improve relationships, transform anger, increase vitality, develop healthy eating habits, break through stuck areas, increase performance, find joy and laughter, etc).  This will enable you to develop self awareness in route to self actualization.  Offering weekend or week long intensives for maximal effectiveness.  Individual, couple, family, small groups as well as training in residence options.  I look forward to working with you!  Shalom-Salaam ~Dr. CJM

“I was able to feel fully refreshed for the first time in years.” I liked the pacing, accomodations, Dr. Mazzeo’s style & vibe.” J. L. (1/27/19 - NYC).



Centers & Bird Sanctuary


“I liked the holistic approach to healing & therapy.” “Dr. Carla is the most intuitive and skilled psychologist I’ve met thus far. The intensive treatment process was the most enlightening experience I have had in my adult life. Anyone struggling from anxiety, depression or addictions, should use this method to address their issues. It is like taking 6-12 months worth of therapy and addressing it in 4-5 days.” “Thank you Dr. C.” C. M., LCSW 2/18/19)
