About The Teacher

I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist (in the state of California) & a relationship expert & coach. I lead plant medicine ceremonies with my partner and use my therapy background to guide clients through integration of their experience. I help people live full, inspired lives through my retreats and programs. I practice what I preach! I dedicate my life full-time to my true passions and to living my dreams.

I have a pretty interesting story! Since 2012, I've been traveling and living in Costa Rica. From 2014 - 16, I brokered the $1.8 million deal for the sale of the hotel and then became the manager of that hotel. I then managed the hotel, the vegan/vegetarian on-site restaurant and I oversaw the yoga program until last year. That's how I ended up full-time in Costa Rica! Before that, I was working as a marriage and family therapist in California.

Now, I'm back to doing what I love, which is working with clients as a therapist and coach.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
