I have had the pleasure of knowing Rosa for over fifteen years and her integrative approach and emphasis on self care is at the heart of her practice. The depth with which she engages with me in session facilitates a wonderful and cathartic exchange. I feel emotionally and physically safe to explore and work with a broad range of tools that she shares. Through breathing and physical exercises, dialog, writing, and exceptional bodywork, I am experiencing deep change. Many people in healing professions approach health symptomatically and co–create an external hierarchy between doctor and patient. Rosa’s approach, rather, invokes the inner healer present in all of us. Her counsel empowers me toward a shift in subtle unconscious patterns I act from, transforming them into vehicles for awareness and positive change. Rather than focusing our energy on what is wrong, “self-care” allows me to move beyond the limiting perception of positive and negative, and into the realm of pure energy, joy in my birthright of giving and receiving love. Ultimately, self-care is a practice of finding our inner joy and inner healer and connecting with the greater web of energy and abundance available to us in each moment. Working with Rosa has been a unique and invaluable opportunity for me to discover and re-connect with my passionate beautiful core self and that has blossomed out into my relationships with my family, my community, and the Earth as a whole.
