I’m Joree Rose and I am so happy that you are here to Journey Forward® to living your best life.
There was a time in my life where I was stuck. I was living inside the thoughts in my head, believed all my “shoulds” and let fear of the unknown take over and rule much of my decision-making. I didn’t feel like I knew myself very well…I did the obvious next step for almost everything in my life, until finally one day in my early 30’s I realized that I had everything I wanted, but I was unfulfilled and felt my “light” get dim.
But then, I woke up! Mindfulness practice came into my life not by chance or coincidence, but by serendipitous events that I chose to pay attention to. I began to be more aware. I started to slow down. I breathed. I discovered my intention, and for the first time learned to get out of the stories in my head and get into my body. I got present. I learned to meditate. All the while having the courage to look at myself and ask the really hard questions about the course of my life. And more importantly, I listened.
It had been my habit to live on autopilot, until I decided that I wanted to be in the driver seat of my own life. I learned the tools. I lived them. And I journeyed forward to a more mindful, happy, present, fulfilled life because for the first time I was living in alignment with my head and my heart. Dissonance no longer resides in my body.
And now I’m here to guide you to do the same.
Having my identity crisis of not knowing who I was led me to going back to complete my 3000 hours to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, after having gotten my Master’s in Counseling Psychology in 2002. I am dedicated to guiding people to cultivate tools to create lasting change because I knew if these mindfulness tools could help me, they could help anyone! I have worked with thousands of people transform their lives, get unstuck from what is not working for them, and cultivate new habits that are in alignment with their values, so they can live their best, most authentic and fulfilling life. I combine scientifically-backed methods, with a heart-centered approach, along with a vast depth of personal and professional experience in mindfulness. If you are ready to live the live you’ve always dreamed of, then I’ll help you get there. Thank yourself for being willing to go on the journey!
