Rochelle has therapeutic specialty areas of training to support integration of these services to individuals struggling with life transitions, depression, anxiety, PTSD, pain conditions, eating disorders, as well as families of developmentally delayed children/adults.
Rochelle’s mindfulness meditation journey begun over 16 years ago. She was introduced to mindfulness via an MBSR course during her clinical training. Over the years she has cultivated her own personal mindfulness practice by establishing a daily mindfulness practice, attending yearly silent retreats and participating in mindfulness trainings. She practices mindfulness based meditation rooted in the Buddhist Theravada Tradition. She has also studied mindfulness in nature with Mark Coleman, and practices meditation in nature daily.
Her mindfulness, nature, somatic therapy is offered to support individuals in learning to heal their own suffering. The use of the support from local nature locations, the sprinter therapy van as well as an office room space provides options for healing settings that can be tailored for the unique needs of her clients. She teaches with warmth, compassion, kindness and openness to encourage others to explore the teachings of mindfulness to cultivate a more easeful way of living.
