A life-changing retreat to free yourself of the emotional and physical effects of stress, anxiety & trauma. Find your freedom and reconnect with your infinite power

APRIL 9 -14, 2024

About The Retreat

In my nearly 25 years as a clinical psychologist and trauma specialist, one thing I can say for sure is that everyone of us have been impacted by trauma in one form or another. In addition to the personal, relationship and career challenges many of us experience, the post pandemic fallout has magnified the feelings of disconnect, lack of fulfillment and discontent for many of us.

This retreat will incorporate the tools and modalities I’ve cultivated as a clinical psychologist, author and personal development coach. This retreat will equip you with the know-how to finally transcend your trauma (even the trauma you don’t realize you’re carrying), reignite your passion, and restore your sense of freedom and purpose.

Can you personally relate with any of the following:

  • Lack of clarity

  • Sadness

  • Anxiety

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Confusion

  • Feeling unfulfilled

  • Easily distracted

  • Constantly checking social media/inability to put phone down

  • Inability to be still

  • Asking yourself, “Is this the best life has to offer?”

  • Wanting to flee, escape or numb yourself

  • Feeling stuck

  • Emotionally on edge, “ triggered”


These feelings are usually an indication of a traumatized person. Trauma rewires our physiology and teaches our mental state to normalize operating from a heightened state of arousal. This is a harmful state of existence. This heightened state of arousal is a trauma response which if left unchecked invites emotional discomfort and physical disease into our lives. Operating life from a traumatized place prevents the abundance and prosperity that desires to enter our lives from doing so. You don’t have to live like this any longer.

Anything learned and normalized can be unlearned, Just like you learned to adapt to living from a traumatized state, you can unlearn this counterproductive existence and recondition yourself to operate from a place of mindfulness, prosperity and power. It’s in this place of resolved trauma where all the magic and beauty of life awaits you.

What You Will Discover

  • You will experience Post Traumatic Growth (PTG) which leads to stronger relationships, greater awareness of new possibilities, increased personal strength, spiritual enhancement, and deeper appreciation for life.

  • You will learn to be more present by learning effective methods to turn off past focused ruminative thinking (which promotes depression) and free yourself from future focused obsessive thinking (which promotes anxiety). You will learn to operate in a state of mindfulness, the state where all abundance, prosperity, intuition and connection resides.

  • You will go on a journey of self and uncover the truth of who you are and why you are here.

  • You will recognize the often overlooked gifts of trauma and how to use these gifts to empower and guide you.

What You Will Gain

You will gain FREEDOM. You will free yourself from the trauma trap and activate your limitless potential. You will free yourself from the emotional and physical pain unresolved trauma has had on your life. You will gain more satisfying intimate, familial, platonic and peer relationships by participating in experiential exercises to help you understand yourself and others better, therefore establishing new healthy behaviors and habits.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Several years ago, when I first visited Dr. Rose, I was a skeptic and distrusting of the world. My journey took me to several different doctors but nothing ever clicked. God continued to redirect me back to her. For He knew, Dr. Rose were the person who would facilitate me into becoming who He called me to be. He knew my breakthrough would flow through her.

I am thankful for her guidance, which has shown me how to tap into my power. I am thankful for her honesty and compassion. Most of all, I am thankful for her passion for teaching others to BLOOM. Thank you Dr. Rose for being an AWESOME teacher.

This TYT Costa R retreat was beyond my expectations. I was just looking to get away, but the transcending part, that really did happen. To be free from my childhood trauma. To know why I have thought and acted the way I did which was needy and victim, I can now be free of that for ever and not have to concern myself or others with that little girl inside issues anymore, because I now know why.
