Body Aware Grieving client testimonials:

"One of the most useful tools I learned from Margo Rose is taking ‘vacation breathes’. Slow, deep pauses of complete relaxation. “Vacation breathes” were especially helpful when Margo and I were working together during the year after my little sister and beloved mother-in-law passed away."
--Vicki S.
"When others expect me to be “over it” (grief), Margo continues to encourage me to talk about situations triggering the feeling of loss. Margo has suggested healthy responses to encountering someone who was unaware of my spouse’s death which makes social situations less stressful."
--Sharon H.

Caring For The Caregivers

Whether you are a family caregiver, professional caregiver or working in the healing arts it can be challenging to balance your own needs while striving to fulfill responsibilities for the people you are nurturing. 

Margo Rose has extensive experience working with families as they juggle care for senior parents, other family members (and often pets) in need. Feeling overwhelmed, guilty and/or resentful and confused about how to sustain one’s own wellness is common.

In these supportive sessions, Margo helps ask caregivers who are becoming drained and depleted “What makes this easier for me?” With empathy and focus on the well-being of her client, she helps strategize ways to stay  balanced in one’s own self-care despite whatever challenges are present.

Caring For The Caregiver client comments:

"My mother’s voice on the phone finally changed when she noticed I was being calm and sticking to my boundaries. She is starting to understand there are other people she can and will ask for help. Despite my inner fears, it worked out okay, so thank you so much for helping me keep my (outer) boundaries firm; it worked!"
--Anna F.

Functional Fitness client comments:

"Margo has been working with me for a couple of years and I am extremely grateful for her knowledge/expertise, encouragement, patience and sense of humor. It’s been very helpful to choose exercise based on my current energy level, learn about functional fitness, and that everything “counts” as movement, like house cleaning, playing with my grandchildren or simple stretches while working on the computer. I am so fortunate to have her support in changing my attitude about exercise and improving my lifestyle. Thank you, Margo!"
