Are you struggling with one of life’s difficult challenges? Asheville area counselor Mark Neville, MDiv, specializes in helping you heal and make your way to a better place. His methods of counseling focus on YOU – a whole person – not just your symptoms.
Mark specializes in grief counseling, marriage counseling, divorce recovery, caregiver support, help with depression and anxiety, finding yourself and your life’s purpose, career counseling, and spiritual counseling.
“My clients want and need to get to a better place in their lives. By the time they meet with me, they’re often exhausted and in pain. Their own efforts have not gotten them there. Neither have the efforts of their family members, friends, and co-workers. Sometimes the professionals they’ve seen haven’t helped them either. Meeting with me is their next attempt to get to a better place in their life.”
“Their pain is total. They feel it in their aching bodies, unclear minds, disturbed spirits, and troubled relationships. They bring to our meeting their unique stories, pain, and attempts to get through the difficulty they’re struggling with.”
Mark says, “I provide for my clients—
One of Mark’s main areas of focus is grief counseling. He says grief is a broader issue than many realize. “Actually, grief is a dimension of every difficult challenge we face in life because difficult challenges involve losses.
In addition to grieving the death of a loved one, we grieve the loss of—
“Since my master’s degree is in Divinity, I also help clients through crises of faith."
Mark calls his method Life Therapy. He says, “I created it out of my education, training, personal life experiences, and over 30 years of professional experience. Life Therapy is unique in several ways:
“It’s not medication therapy, psychotherapy, or mental/behavioral health counseling. Neither is it coaching, mentoring, or consulting."
“Together my clients and I attend to and take care of their lives. Since there is so much more to their lives than their problems, we view their problems in the broader context of their life: where they’ve been, where they are now, and where they want to go."
“First, we attend to their healing. By healing, I mean becoming whole and integrated. Even when they’re living with an illness or injury, they can be whole and have a sense of well-being. When they are ready, we clarify where they want to go in their lives and how to get there. Then, I help them get there."
Mark shares, “A couple came to me after their daughter died in a tragic accident. She was in her early twenties, bright, doing very well in college, and already succeeding in a career. They had been to two other counselors but had not received the help they needed."
“They were desperate and wanted a quick solution to their grief. There is no quick solution to grief, especially in response to the death of a child. I started by giving them basic, helpful information about grief. They ended our first session saying that they had received more help in our hour together than all of the other hours they spent with others."
“I met with them for over two years. Not only did they make their way through the complicated grief for their daughter, they made their way through winning a drawn-out law suit concerning their daughter’s death, adapting as a family, establishing a foundation in her honor, helping young people through the foundation, sending their son off into the world as a young adult, moving to a new house, taking on several additional professional responsibilities, and too many other things to tell here."
“Understand this: they are not “over” the death of their daughter. They never will be. They still grieve for her and always will. However, they have made their way to a better place in life than they were in when they first saw me.”
Mark has this bit of advice for prospective clients: “The one thing I’d say is this: sooner is better than later. You’ve suffered too long already. Why wait any longer? If I can’t help, I’ll find someone who can.”
Mark sees clients both in person and online through WeCounsel.com. “I see clients in my offices in Hendersonville and Asheville. I’m one of the few therapists who also makes house and/or office calls. Seeing online clients makes me available to out-of-town members of families I’m caring for as well as clients throughout the US.”
If you have grief issues or find something is holding you back from the life you richly deserve, don’t wait. Call Mark Neville today and let him help you discover ways to break free and find your true potential.

The world of vitamins and nutritional supplements can be a jungle. So many choices and conflicting claims can leave you confused. That’s why we all need a trusted source of great advice. Look no further than New Sun Products in Hendersonville. It’s your one-stop shop for vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and proprietary herbal blends formulated by a Master Herbalist and Naturopathic Doctor.
Owner Cecelia (Ceil) Salvadori loves to set customers on their road to natural health. “At New Sun we believe that the body can heal itself when given the proper environment,” Ceil said. “An environment free from chemicals, toxins, provided with pure water, enriched through education and physical exercise and uplifted by strong spiritual beliefs. The holistic philosophy at New Sun is: body, mind and spirit that work together for the benefit of the whole. “
Established in 1987, New Sun has been helping customers find natural health solutions for 31 years. Co-founder, Jim Salvadori, was a Master Herbalist and N.D. who wanted to help people to better health with exceptional natural supplements. He had experienced major health issues and the holistic path was his ticket to better health. “Our products are natural, they are certified to be free of harmful pesticides and fungicides,” Ceil said. “We strive to offer products that are as close to nature as possible.”
Ceil is more than just the storeowner – she’s a customer. Asked about her favorite product, she said it’s difficult to choose. “That’s hard, since we have well over 100 products” Ceil said. “I take a number of them every day and have for years. I guess if I had to choose one it would be Life Source. It is our number one selling product – the ultimate green drink. It also comes in capsule form. It is formulated to help alkalize the body, it aids with boosting the immune system, it’s a high source of protein derived from spirulina, and it is also a rich source of calcium, again plant based. For me personally, I feel a difference in my energy levels and just have a feeling of balance when I make it part of my daily protocol.”
In addition to great products, New Sun gives personalized guidance on customers’ supplement needs. “New Sun is one of 15 natural products providers that has an FDA approved tool (Zyto Compass) that can provide a personalized report on your body's supplement needs,” Ceil said. “We also offer classes from time to time that are directed toward educating people about ways to improve their health and well-being through natural means. That includes diet.”
Making their way up the ranks of all-time customer favorites are the new Hemp (CBD) products. “They have soared to the number 20 spot in our bestselling product list,” Ceil said. “Again, New Sun believes that our products have to be as close to how they were created in nature as possible. Our CBD Oil is 100% organic hemp, US grown, no flavor additives, no other oils used to cut the efficiency of the hemp.“
New Sun caters to a clientele that wants the best for their health. “Our customers are those who are aware that not all supplements are created equal,” Ceil said. “They understand that in order to experience better health, in many cases, it is necessary for a life style change. Most of our customers want to be the stewards of their own bodies and continue to learn about all that is available in the holistic realm. The staff at New Sun loves working with all of our customers, those who have been with us since 1986 and those who come to us for the first time. Their improved health is our mission.”
Spending as much time as Ceil has in the shop and working daily with customers, she has seen some remarkable things. Ceil describes a few. “One that happened recently, a customer came into the shop and was experiencing an anxiety attack. With the use of an essential oil she was able to regain calm and walked out recovered. “
“Another was years ago but stays in my mind always,” Ceil said. “A well known urologist came into our shop, wanting to know about one of our prostate products. This came as a surprise to us since in many cases mainstream medicine doesn't place much value on supplements. He then explained that several of his patients were taking our products, he noticed real improvement, and he then asked if he could sell the product at his office! That product was sold from his office for over 15 years until he retired. Last but not least, is that our customers become like our family, and they can feel that when they enter our doors.”
If you haven’t experienced New Sun yet, you owe it to your health to stop on in or visit their website. Ceil and her staff are dedicated to your health and well-being. “We are here to help you achieve optimal health in any way we can,” Ceil said. “Our mission is to help people to a better way of life through natural means, using high quality ingredients in our products, giving personalized attention to each customer, and pricing our products so that all can afford them.”

You can almost hear the language of the drums and read the poetry of smoke rising into the sky. It’s a very special place.
All Nations Trading specializes all things Native American, such as authentic jewelry, dream catchers, medicine wheels, fetish carvings, bows and arrows, pipes, tomahawks, talking sticks, prayer feathers, labyrinths, music, arts and crafts, and more. You can also find gems from around the world.
Everything in the store is magic to the eyes, but perhaps the most remarkable display is the display case of inlay jewelry. Each stunning piece is meticulously handcrafted by Master Navajo and Zuni silver designers.
All Nations Trading owner Anita Earnest describes the exquisite nature of inlay jewelry. “Contemporary inlay jewelry is one of the most popular methods of jewelry making today,” Anita said. “Zuni artists of Western New Mexico were the first to perfect it. The Navajo people have always been very talented and creative in jewelry making and have now become one of the most popular groups in our country, both with inlay work and sterling silver with traditional nugget settings.”
Inlay jewelry is a lengthy, meticulous process. Each tiny bit is a small stone cut down to millimeter proportions and carefully inlaid into the piece. One design can have 50 or more inlaid pieces. It can take weeks.
“When you look at one little piece, lets say a little door in pueblo scene, a millimeter size stone, you know it takes a talented inlayer to create cuts like this,” Anita said. “Also, when you see a star in the Starry Night design it takes the artist 12 cuts just to make one star. Stones like turquoise, lapis lazuli, black jade, spiny oyster, picture jasper, tiger eye and opal are often used. Very complicated and very detailed scenes are composed in gorgeous wearable art pieces.”
Inlay jewelry is made by creating a masterpiece, like a form, with channels that are meant to have gemstones inlayed into them. Very small pieces of rocks and/or shells are hand cut and then inlaid in different angles. The gemstones are attached with a high strength epoxy and cured. After inlay is done, they go through a grinding, sanding and buffing procedure until everything is smooth. The final stage is when the sealer gets applied (usually in three layers) and then polished. Once the piece is finished you can’t feel any of the cuts.
“We carry the highest quality inlay work done by artists here in the US,” Anita said. “A large portion of inlay now comes as imported southwest style and done in factories overseas. This is totally different work and you can both feel and see it, but for the uneducated consumer it can be harder. Make sure you know what you are buying.”
Fine jewelry is just part of what you’ll find at All Nations Trading. Check out authentic Native American Dream Catchers, handmade by Native people, Navajo made ones come complete with authenticity tags and the legend.
There’s also a large assortment of Medicine Wheels. The sacred hoop of the Medicine Wheel symbolizes life as a continuous cycle and the four aspects of our nature – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Most of all, the Medicine Wheel is said to be the bringer of beauty and balance, peace and harmony, and gratitude for all things.
Then there’s beadwork. All Nations Trading brings you the finest in fair trade Mayan beadwork from Guatemala. Purchase of Mayan beadwork helps this indigenous culture to remain the last native people on Earth not fully assimilated into the western world.
Don’t miss the impressive display of native artifacts. These artifacts are essential components of indigenous heritage. Look for Cherokee and Navajo ceremonial rattles, bows and arrows, and pipes. The pipes are fully functional, but they are not Peace Pipes, which are considered sacred and not offered for sale.
Are you a fan of Native American pottery? All Nations Trading carries works by known artists. This includes Navajo horsehair pottery, Pueblo, traditional hand coiled pottery, Creek pottery and Navajo etched pottery. You can also find local utilitarian mugs, bowls, and plates pottery.
There’s even more, but we don’t want to give it all away! You need to visit All Nations Trading to see what else is in the store. Owners Jim and Anita Earnest are always happy to meet you and answer your questions about Native American arts and crafts.
All Nations Trading is located at 514 North Main Street, right in the heart of downtown Hendersonville, North Carolina.
