Transform Your Life

Your Go-To Relationship & Personal Counselor in Scotts Valley

Are you looking for someone to journey with you through the ups and downs of life? Someone who is both supportive and compassionate? If so, then I can help. My name is Illana Berger, PhD, and I am a spiritual counselor and coach. I offer guidance and support, and on top of that, my unique background and training as a Zen teacher, wisdom keeper, indigenous scientist, and spiritual healer bring a unique perspective to the work that I do.


My own journeys of growth and transformation have deeply shaped my understanding and work. Through my own process of self-discovery, I have acquired an understanding of my vulnerabilities and limitations, and it is this awareness that I bring to the work I offer, inspiring others to do the same. With it comes a deep knowing of one’s true nature, and by entering the landscapes of our inner lives, it is easier to recognize and become aware of what triggers us and how to respond with compassion and kindness.


This is at the heart of conscious relationships, mindful divorce, and conscious love. These things have one thing in common: a commitment to doing our inner work. Only when we can understand and appreciate ourselves deeply can we really reach out and be open to others in true empathy. Only when we cultivate a compassionate heart, a commitment to our greatest selves, and a willingness to live in the present moment can we experience true connection.


It is only by embracing our vulnerability, authenticity and unhindered self-expression that we can create meaningful, powerful, and beautiful relationships. It is here that we can have an enriching life experience. My unique background and training in Zen, wisdom, indigenous science, and spiritual healing give me the ability to inspire and guide you on this journey. I am here to offer insight and direction so that you can learn to see and love your life just as it is and live the adventure of your life with honesty and fearlessness.


Are you ready to take a leap and find a deeper understanding of yourself? Do you want to join me in exploring what lies within you in order to cultivate loving, conscious relationships or a mindful divorce? If so, don't hesitate to reach out. Get in touch with me today at (510) 759-8758 to book a session or for more information.
