Rochelle offers mindfulness, nature-based therapy and somatic experiencing as a psychologist with New Mindful Life. Her therapeutic approach includes teaching people individual mindfulness meditations- both indoors and outdoors- specific to their unique concerns to support healing. She also integrates somatic experiencing healing (body-based healing through nervous system reorganization) with the mindfulness and nature-based meditation practices. Rochelle has therapeutic specialty areas of training to support the 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.

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.
