Meet Dr. Kailas

First born to Hindu parents on the Louisiana bayou, Dr. Kailas spent her early years in Gallup, New Mexico, playing in pink dirt, plucking orange carrots from the ground, and dancing amongst brilliant rainbows painted across enormous desert skies.  Just as the girl began to ripen, she was drawn into the mystery of New Orleans.  Observing the change in culture and the rapidly evolving world around her, she became fascinated by the interface between body and mind.  Curiosity persists, and through grace bestowed by the lessons of extraordinary tragedy, Dr. Kailas recognizes that nourishment of spirit, the animation and illumination of our being, is vital to balanced health, radiant beauty, and harmonious vibrancy.

Currently available for face to face consultation in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Dr. Kailas has extensive training in Eastern and Western healing modalities, including general pediatrics, adult psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, integrative and functional medicine, CBT, DBT, and the vast and ancient Vedic wisdom of Yoga.

"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
Albert Einstein
My practice embraces the individual gifts expressed by offering a unique, personalized perspective on the development of body, mind, and spirit.  I work with you as a participant in a one-on-one, step-by-step process, to achieve motivation for a life full of energy and ease. I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress in your relationships cause you to overeat? Does low energy prevent you from exercising?  Are you waking up sluggish despite 8 hours of sleep?  As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your physical, mental, and emotional health as a whole.

My approach to healing takes place in the present moment, with hope for the future to come, as it is no longer helpful to dwell on the past in which you suffered.  We will bring in new ideas and opportunities to try out instead of creating lists of restrictions on what is "good or bad" for you.  With your participation, we will work together to create a joyful, fulfilling life in a way that is flexible, fun, inspiring, and liberating!

We will work together to reach your health goals in areas such as increasing restfulness, maximizing energy, and enjoying the simple gifts life has to offer.  As we grow in our work together, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will create balance and improve your energy, vibrancy, and general health.
