Saludos, I'm Dra. Rocio
I am a Xicana/Mexicana Seer, Medicine Woman, Counseling Psychology Ph.D., and mama.
I have more than two decades of experience as a healer and was born with the psychic gifts of seeing, hearing, feeling, and knowing and these abilities run deep in my blood lineage. I have a deep connection to our Mother Earth and the nature spirits and practice Indigenous Earth based shamanic medicine. I come from a long line of healers in my family and learned how to hold space for others early on from my abuelita and mama.
While I was trained as a psychologist and have thousands of hours in clinical training, teaching, research, and providing therapy, I have chosen not to be a licensed psychologist because it was ultimately not my path. I do value the skills I acquired through the sacred work of therapy as it is these skills and the mentorship from BIPOC psychologists, like Dr. Jeanett Castellanos, Dr. Thomas Parham, & Dr. Joe White, that I received that has allowed me to share a liberatory psychology with those I'm honored to now work with.
I am multiskilled and yet, what I feel are my unique gifts are my heart, my deep sense of compassion, my visionary leadership, and my ability to tap into the spiritual realms.
My work is at the intersections of decolonizing, spirituality, and wellness. And what I bring to my teaching and healing work with people is my psychic, empathic, claircognizant, clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient, & mediumship abilities.
I offer my work not as an educator, but as a medicine woman.
I am on the Nusta Paqo or Earth based Indigenous Shamanic medicine woman path in the Q'ero Inca Nation tradition in an apprenticeship with Pampa Mesayoq Don Alejandro Apaza of the Apaza family lineage and initiated by medicine woman Marilu Shinn as a medicine woman in Earth Based Indigenous Shamanism. I am deeply committed to this lifelong path and continue my learning. I am devoted to showing up in the way I am called to bring in the times of right relationship with humanity and our Mother Earth.
It is my deep honor to walk this path and to facilitate healing through the gifts entrusted to me by Spirit, my guides, and ancestors.
Mama, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Comadre, Madrina
A life of ease, harmony, and abundance is important to me and one that I hope for all of us. And so, I protect my energy, honor my motherhood and family time so that I can serve in a way that honors all of me, and my family. I wish the same for us all.
Thank you for honoring all of me and not just my work. It is my prayer that this becomes part of the New Earth, a return to our sacred ways.
