Book Writing for Therapists & Other Healers


What clients have to say

(more comments in "Testimonials"):

"Unconditional positive regard and presence are two qualities that every good therapist aspires to. When achieved, the counselor becomes a healer. What a delightful surprise to find that Naomi Rose excels in these attributes.

"My hope, in initially working with her, was to get back on track with my book. What is happening, through being deeply listened to, is that I am starting to hear myself.

Because of that, my relationship to writing has shifted to a level that will grow beyond the book project and inform the rest of my life. The book has become a bonus and I am grateful."

~ Clare Goodwin, author,

Gifts of the Mandala:

A Guided Journey of Self-Discovery



“Working with Naomi was like having someone who is for  you, who keeps seeing you and accepting you. I couldn't have written the book without Naomi.  She is truly my fairy godmother of writing.”

~ Katayoon Zandvakili, author,

My Beautiful Impostor




"I brought Naomi the first draft of a novel. She helped me understand its true value and importance as well as showing me the strengths and weaknesses of my writing.  She has inspired me to honor what I have written by doing the work necessary to bring it into the coherent and beautiful form it deserves."

~ Rahima Warren, author, Dark Innocence




"You have been utterly exceptional. I cannot imagine another editor on the planet who could step into my shoes and edit esoteric material as beautifully and sincerely as you did."

  ~ Rebecca Field, author,

To Choose the Fire of the Cosmos





"What Naomi does superbly is to evoke the creative and articulate in each person who works with her--to such a degree that each one is surprised at his/her owntalent for expression." 

~ Gay Luce, Co-founder,

Nine Gates Mystery School,

author, Body Time and Your Second Life








"Naomi is gifted with the ability to create time and space for those of us who are her writing students to know how to feel our experiences welling up from our roots, their own unique tides coursing through our bodies, and to meld them with the words that name them. Together, we can swim in the language like fish, as naturally as we were always meant to. Naomi will cherish you and your work as you begin to recognize the beauty and poignancy of your own stories."

Are You Called to Write Something Wonderful ~


 but aren't sure how to get started,
     put the pieces together,
     or see the light at the end of the tunnel?

Writing a book doesn't have to hurt!

     Whether you have written a book before

or this is the very first time ~

No matter where you are in the process of writing a book,

I can guide you from the first urge to create

all the way through to completion,

and all the phases in between.

I can help you bring your book to life

so you feel well listened to,

supported, expertly guided,

and cherished.

With over 30 years in the publications field,

a family legacy of writing,

graduate training in psychology,

and a lifelong interest in healing,

I'm here to help both you and your book bloom.


Some very good reasons to write a book this way:

  1. Personal discovery and satisfaction
  2. To share who you are/ what you know
  3. To spread your message more widely
  4. To build a following based on quality & authenticity
  5. To discover and refine your artistry
  6. As a sacred act for your own soul
  7. As a contribution to humanity


As we partner in this deep, wonderful journey, you will:

  1. Discover what you want to say and how you want to say it
  2. Experience the inspiration and relief of being listened to and received, on many levels of your being
  3. Realize the connection between your call to write a book, and the inner resources with which to write it
  4. Move through inner and outer obstacles with increasing ease
  5. Note your own ways of creating that are just right for you
  6. Find and refine your essential artistry
  7. Touch the world with your particular magic
  8. Publish your book, if desired
  9. Have fun!

And I will:

  1. Listen to you so that you come to listen to yourself and trust what comes to guide your writing
  2. Fully engage with and support you every step of the way
  3. Share my expertise of over 30 years on writing, editing, and publishing
  4. Acknowledge you and celebrate your successes / have compassion for your struggles
  5. Cherish you and honor your journey
  6. Help you achieve your dreams and goals for yourself, your book, and the world


You don’t need to "Have It All Together"!

It's a journey of discovery.

Things will make themselves known.

There's so much to enjoy in this process!

To write a book from the deeper Self with my help, you don’t need to have it all in place before beginning. You don’t need to know everything ahead of time.

In fact, you can’t!

You only need to know how to listen to what comes as it comes, how to find the threads that connect them into a meaningful whole, and how to discover the shape of the writing as it reveals itself to you along the way.

Then, all sorts of hidden places inside you spring to life in eager cooperation, offering memories, images, the thread of continuity that underpins your real story ~ as well as new, fresh visions.

“In the expression of the soul, the divine purpose is fulfilled.”

“What Naomi does superbly is to evoke the creative and articulate

in each person who works with her ~

to such a degree that each one is surprised

at his/her owntalent for expression.”

You need to become a pen

In the Sun´s hand.
We need for the earth to sing
Through our pores and eyes.
The body will again become restless
Until your soul paints all its beauty
Upon the sky.
Don´t tell me, dear ones,
That what Hafiz says is not true,
For when the heart tastes its glorious destiny
And you awake to our constant need
for your love

God´s lute will beg
For your hands.


~ Hafiz, "The Lute Will Beg for Your Hands"

from The Gift, trans. by Daniel Ladinsky
