Marty Cottler is a certified tutor for the American College of Vedic Astrology and brings more than 30 years of counseling and teaching experience to his Vedic Astrology practice.
Marty views our birth charts as a mapping of meaningful patterns in different areas of our lives, including relationships, education, work, finances, wellness, and spirituality. Meaningful patterns are a mixture of our actions and our experiences of these actions. During your Vedic counseling consultation, Marty will analyze your birth chart and share his understanding of the patterns he sees in your life from an integrative Vedic and Western perspective.
One of Marty’s special interests is helping clients identify underlying sources of stress in their lives. He discusses what we can do to transform the causes and effects of stress into actions that result in more productivity, creativity, and fulfillment.
Marty earned his Ph.D. degree in psychology in 1981. He maintained a private practice as a California licensed marriage and family therapist for more than three decades before closing his practice in 2014. In the 1980s, Marty began traveling to India to further his immersion in the Vedic wisdom tradition and integrating this wisdom with his knowledge of Western psychology, two endeavors he continues to this day. In recent years, Marty has received training in mindfulness-based stress reduction at the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness. He also leads Mindfulness-for-Wellness workshops for individuals, businesses, and corporations.
