Please take the time to browse my various services. I offer both consultation by the hour as well as personalized workshop design for both in-house as well as virtual trainings. Please reach out directly via email to schedule a time to discuss the specific needs of your group or organization.
It is my role to offer a safe and inspiring relationship rooted in the principles of non-judgement and respect. I seek to create a healing dynamic where you can begin to explore the parts of yourself that you otherwise have struggled to discover and self-actualize. I will be the person in your life who consistently acknowledges your greatness, preserves your dreams and believes in your unlimited--always.
I do not charge by the session or by the hour. I charge by the experience. I offer coaching packages based on efficacy and the amount of time required to be spent in a therapeutic space in order to bring about long-lasting, sustainable change. Conversely, I have no interest in keeping clients in my office for longer than they need to be. It is my intention for you to experience not only relief in the early stages of our work but to also create enough momentum to keep you both motivated as well as inspired throughout the entirety of our journey together. We are all busy and life moves quickly, therefore I want you to get the most out of our experience together, in the shortest amount of time possible and I know exactly what it takes to do just that.

6 Sessions for Partnerships/Parents
This option is for any individual or partnership who is need of a deep as well as sustainable change in their current circumstances and mental health. Chances are you've seen many practitioners before and haven't made much headway or have tried various modalities yet you always seem to return to old thoughts and patterns. This has left you feeling disheartened and maybe even hopeless; never quite feeling like you've achieved the healing and wholeness you have always sought after. My promise is to show up for you and your goals while simultaneously holding you accountable to your dreams. I will lovingly (and effectively) guide you through this process every step of the way with unwavering support and with unconditional love for your sacred unfolding. Meet me in the work and radical change is absolutely guaranteed.
Each coaching package includes:
Tobin, Father of a 5yr old and 8yr old
Plus, the approach, by its very nature, has us connecting with our children in everyday moments like we hadn't before. That's been healing for everyone. Learning from Star has been lovely. She's a no-nonsense mom who's been through the trenches, herself, turned things around with this approach, and is soo passionate about bringing it to other parents. I recommend Star Rose Bond and The Nurtured Heart Approach, wholeheartedly.
Allison Howard, Cannabis Rep.
Her neuroscience based approach is refreshing, grounding, & cathartic. It’s very obvious there is a large amount of care & love Star puts into her work. Her level of honesty & support is unmatched! In the short time we worked together mountains moved for me. I now have the tools to self-regulate and help myself!!! From my perspective, Star is an alchemist of the human condition, and working with her was one of the best decisions I’ve made to date.
Lexi Bella, Visual Artist, Blogger, Yoga Instructor
Her combination of compassion and deep strength help her to lead the deepest journey of a weeklong workshop to a simple yoga practice. It is life changing to work with her!
Deb Patterson, Accountant
and heading into tax season which requires 7 days a week of long and exhausting hours. I couldn’t imagine how I was going to get through it; every year seemed to get harder and harder. I saw a newspaper article on Star Bond who sounded like she had an unconventional style of engagement and motivation and decided to give her a call. Over the next 10 or so months of coaching, Star guided my thought processes and habits from rerunning negative and unproductive thought processing to looking forward to and expecting the coming opportunities brought about by adversity. She taught me the purpose of life and has turned pain into challenge and reward. Thank you Star for the new and productive me.
Betsy Cheslik, Hair Stylist
Instead of focusing on my relationship she told me that this is for me. My relationship with self. It wasn’t easy but I leaned so hard into being “selfish “ (what I thought at the time) that I became a higher version of self and ultimately when my toxic relationship did end it ended gracefully and organically and I was safe and excited for what was to come next. I’m so thankful Star popped into my world when she did. Best gift anyone could ever get themselves.
Sharyn Glowatz, Technology Recruiter/Animal Rescuer
Her groups are well organized and she creates a safe and intimate space where the women in the group can bond with each other and share deep feelings. She introduced me to many new concepts that have been life changing. She is fully present as a leader and just a very warm, smart lady! I look forward to working with her again.
Kristin Esposito, Writer, Yoga Instructor
when teaching yoga, you simply feel as if you’re being carried through your practice. Her classes are a thoughtful combination of dance-like flow and insightful wisdom. It’s such a treat taking her class that I didn’t want it to end.
Gianna Garrett, Mom
You give women of all walks of life, feelings of empowerment! That we can change or be the amazing women/person that we are meant to be, no matter what we’ve been through or have done in our past. You give us faith and drive to get beyond the nightmares of our past reality and make today a safe, happy and healthy life for ourselves. By far the best teacher of individual growth and recovery I’ve had the pleasure of learning from! Thank u for your personal determination to help others, because it’ll never be the same because now we know too much!
Jon Demeritt, Business Owner
and be the best person they can be. Having been into self improvement for many years, this was By Far the most I’ve learned about myself, my journey and spirituality in such a short period of time. I continue to use the practices Star taught me on a daily basis and have noticed a profound change in person I am now and my outlook on life. Best decision I ever made…nothing short of life altering.
Greg Michna, Computer Engineer
She quickly saw who I was and what I needed to break free of my Fearful, Mundane, Self medicating life. With Passion, Support, Knowledge, and Love in her heart, she changed my life forever. If you’re willing to do the work, she will show you the way to a more amazing, fulfilling life. I cannot recommend her enough!
Syama Masla, Yoga teacher, Ayurvedic massage therapist & Ayurvedic Che
She shares from a place of truth and gives many personal experiences. I trust her guidance and her love for Women’s empowerment.
Stacey F. MD, Physician
Her ability to give each person the safety and support they need for personal growth and insight is remarkable. She helps nourish a sense of community and connectedness which is so rare these days. I personally gained so much from her workshops and look forward to learning with her again.
Ian Livingston, QMHP
working with groups, but also to see the effect her expansive knowledge, personal charisma, and dynamic presentation style has upon the participants of those groups over time, in interviews and individual counseling sessions. People who come into one of Star’s groups cynical and dismissive of the subject matter leave inspired to apply her practical solutions in their lives. The effect is transformational. People who once imagined themselves flawed beyond repair develop skills for building insight and the kind of engagement with others that helps support and develop the self-esteem necessary to sustaining resilience in a traumatic world. I learn something new every time I work with her.
Anna Tsontakis- Mally, Artist
Being more of a senior citizen I don’t think I would have been open to the workshop prior to meeting Star. I found her to be so open, authentic, enthusiastic, and passionate about her work, which was contagious, that I felt compelled to give it a try. I looked forward to the evenings of the workshop finding Star well prepared, ready to give of herself, inclusive and informative. Being a retired teacher ,I found Star to possess a natural ability to connect with others , also leading each of us to connect with each other. As a workshop leader I feel she has a great amount of skill, warm, compassion, and wisdom. So young and so alive
Jennifer L. Giordano, RN, BSN, IBCLC
and assisted new mother’s in their journey of new motherhood. She is able to capture the inner beauty of women and help them see their beauty. It is easy to trust her because her love for humanity is palpable. It was a pleasure to observe her work and grow from working with her.
Danielle, Mother of a 4 year old
The approach has opened my eyes to a whole new way of parenting. It is especially helpful and ensuring to know Star is there every step of the way and even on call through the transitions and transformation of the household. She is especially thorough and creative through out the workshop.
Josie, mother/foster parent of a 7 year old and a 1 year old.
to dive right into a new approach at parenting. NHA has given me the ability to take a step back, regather my thoughts as a parent, and build a positive reinforcement based parenting style. Stars ability to be vulnerable with her class and include her own trials, tribulations, and triumphs in her personal parenting life made the class more realistic and personable! I would highly recommend NHA to anyone and I would especially recommend the class taught by Star.
RENE WILEY, PARENT OF A 10 YEAR OLD
Classes are lively and fun. This is the most respectful and direct parenting approach I've found. I checked in with my daughter during our first week of trying NHA and was surprised when she lit up with: "For the first time ever, I feel seen and heard for all the good things that I do!" I appreciate that we have a more authentic connection and the language to easily reset as needed. My whole family loves NHA.
Certified Trained Facilitator in the Nurtured Heart Approach
The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a relationship-focused methodology founded strategically in The 3 Stands™ for helping children (and adults) build their Inner Wealth™ and use their intensity in successful ways. It has become a powerful way of awakening the inherent greatness in all children while facilitating parenting and classroom success. The essence of the Approach is a set of core methodologies originally developed for working with the most challenging of situations and with children who have not experienced success with conventional approaches to both therapy as well as discipline.
I offer organizational trainings, consultation and Family Packages to help integrate as well as implement the methodology into your school, home and/or agency setting. This model is appropriate for ALL ages: early childhood through adolescence.
"It is in the collectivities that we find reservoirs of hope and optimism."

I reserve a portion of my practice to offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP):
Ketamine is a Schedule III medication that has been used for many years as an anesthetic and analgesic agent. Being a dissociative anesthetic, it allows one to dissociate/disconnect from their ordinary reality and encourage an altered state of consciousness. Ketamine rapidly enhances the maturation of neurons which in turn encourages neuroplasticity—two necessary components to long-term, sustainable healing.
KAP is, above all, an intensive psychotherapy that gets to core feelings and helps to rewire emotional blueprints. Ketamine lowers anxiety, helps bypass defenses, and allows access to our innermost feelings. At some point in our lives we needed the protection of defenses and anxiety, but today they have become our default, activating automatically without awareness and consequently keeping us stuck. Once they are soothed, however, our innate human orientation towards healing, connection, empowerment and curiosity is released.
You will first be referred to a medical provider where you will be screened for eligibility using the lozenge or troche method (oral). If approved, you will be given a prescription to participate in treatment and together we will map out your programmatic goals. Lastly, we will also discuss and explore best practices to ensure the safety and efficacy of each session. Depending upon your specific needs and challenges, we will also determine at that time what type of sessions are most appropriate in terms of virtual or in-office visits.
This treatment option is available for the person or group of individuals seeking to explore and/or enhance their current healing journey and mitigate the symptoms associated with various mental health conditions. Ketamine combined with psychotherapy has proven to be effective in the treatment of: PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Addiction and alcohol abuse.
There is also now growing evidence that demonstrates ketamine's positive effects on individuals who struggle with ADHD, chronic pain, early onset Dementia and Alzheimer's, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and many other common physiological disorders. Ketamine alongside various other psychedelic medicines, often serves as an ancillary modality to augment as well as accelerate current treatment plans.

Additionally, I offer integration sessions to individuals undergoing sacred medicine work outside of my practice. I am incredibly excited to be at the forefront of this revitalized psychedelic renaissance. With that said, I am also deeply committed to the decolonization of these practices and ensuring the accessibility of these interventions for all individuals who may be seeking their benefits.
Note: If finances are a sincere challenge or if you represent a traditionally marginalized group and you are unable to participate in this treatment due to some form of hardship, please feel free to contact me to discuss sliding scale options. Also, payment plans are always available.
Life Camp is a virtual sanctuary for adults who want to make radical change in their lives as well as participate in a LIVE trauma-informed group setting designed to specifically support, empower and inspire your healing process. Life Camp is a strategically curated, trauma-informed program that addresses your innermost needs for trauma recovery and integration. This program is a wonderful option for individuals who are seeking to be a part of an inclusive as well as transformative community dedicated to personal growth and wellness. This program also serves as a wonderful integrative option for post-ketamine treatment and enables you to access continuous support as well as maximize the benefits of KAP and it's neuroplastic effect on the brain. My co-founder and I have also intentionally priced this program incredibly low in the efforts to create accessibility for anyone seeking support and healing. This is an excellent option if finances feel challenged yet getting your life back on track is an absolute priority. We got you!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THERAPY AND COACHING?
Therapists assess, diagnose, and treat mental illness and psychological challenges. The focus of therapy is on the identification and reduction of mental health symptoms.
Coaches are not mental health professionals. The focus of coaching is to motivate and encourage clients wanting to achieve specific goals.
In my particular practice, since I am both a licensed psychotherapist as well as a trauma-informed coach, you often get the best of both worlds and there is some overlap. I always discuss the differences explicitly in our introductory session so you are aware of what to expect when working with me.
Who do you serve as clients?
My offerings are for all humans, families and intimate partners: women, men, non-binary and gender non-conforming who are seeking a cutting edge approach to healing.
I welcome people of all colors, shapes, sexual orientations, gender identities and religious affiliations. I am committed to practices within my business that not only promote inclusivity and cultural competency but are also visibly demonstrated in my work with individuals and communities. I am also dedicated to being at the forefront of decolonizing our mental health system and utilizing an anti-capitalist framework within my business and promotional material to bring about hope and healing to those who need it most.
Do you accept insurance?
I am an out-of-network provider, meaning I do not accept direct payment from insurance companies. I will, however, be able to provide superbills to individuals with out-of-network coverage or those enrolled in an employment-assistant program (EAP), and you may receive a partial reimbursement for your financial investment.
Here are some questions to ask your insurance provider:
a. What are my routine behavioral health care benefits?
b. Do I need a referral from my primary care doctor?
c. What is my deductible and have I met it?
d. What amount do you cover for out-of-network providers?
e. What credentials must my therapist have for me to receive reimbursement?
*Please note: submitting an insurance claim requires me to give you a mental health diagnosis
Do you offer refunds?
If you would like to cancel a coaching package after the first session, you must notify me within 7 days of completing the first session. The first session billed at the current single session rate, $250.00, will be deducted from the package price before a refund is issued for the remaining sessions. If paid by credit card, a 4% reprocessing fee will be deducted.
If for any reason, the program is interrupted any time after one week from start date, unused sessions will not be refunded, but may be rescheduled up to 6 months from purchase date.
Unused non-refundable sessions may be transferred to a friend or family member within your 6 session, 12 session, or 24 session program window provided the new client has completed their consultation and has been deemed suitable for coaching.
