Psychologist opens Glen Ellen office

Dr. Katherine Hargitt

Licensed psychologist Dr. Katherine Hargitt, Psy.D., recently opened a psychotherapy and consultation office in Glen Ellen, specializing in mental health and emotional issues faced by children, adolescents and adults.

Hargitt, a long time resident of Sonoma Valley, holds a Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. She has clinical experience treating a wide variety of mental health concerns related to childhood adversities, trauma and PTSD, life stress, anxiety, depression and other mood challenges, grief/death/dying, life transitions, identity, creativity, as well as compassion fatigue and burnout. Her therapy orientation is both cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic, and integrates mindfulness, the outdoors, expressive arts, and psychoeducation.

Hargitt offers more than 35 years of experience in working with children and parents in a variety of capacities and countries. Her active involvement in Sonoma Valley has also led her to provide support to elders with dementia and other terminal illnesses, and thus her interest in expanding her clinical work to serving seniors in our community.

To set up a free conversation, contact Dr. Hargitt (PSY26539) at 235-8488 or drkhargitt@vom.com.

Horatius re-opens

For coffee lovers the wait is over! Horatius, the organic gourmet coffee bar on Arnold Drive at the corner of Jack London Village, will reopen on Friday, Feb. 17. Owner Horacio Gomes decided to use this rainy time of the year to add new amenities and extend the schedule to open earlier, at 7:30 a.m. in response to many customers' requests. Horatius will be open six days a week, closed on Tuesdays. A new expanded food menu is expected to be released a few days after the Feb. 17 reopening.

To reach Horatius, call 934-8496.

Lion Heart Yoga moves to St. Patrick's

Nadra McAuliffe, owner of Lion Heart Yoga.

Starting March 1, Kenwood-based Lion Heart Yoga Studio will be moving from its current location at 9255 Sonoma Hwy. to St. Patrick's Episcopal Church, across the street at 9000 Sonoma Hwy.

While the current studio at the former Kenwood Farmhouse had a nice yogic vibe, owner Nadra McAuliffe said it was not sufficiently constructed to withstand the elements. Without insulation, it was too cold in winter and too hot in summer. Stevenson Hall at St. Patrick's will provide a more comfortable space for the Lion Heart classes, said McAuliffe.

Lion Heart will be offering Nadra's Level 1/2 and 2/3 classes three days a week and will be adding another class for beginning yoga with instructor Alicia Parks.

Rates remain the same with drop-in classes $17, five class packages $75 and 10 class packages $140.

The new schedule will be up soon at www.lionheartyoga.com. For more information, contact Lion Heart Yoga at 337-5127.
