"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."

Therapists

who wrote their books

(or did fruitful explorations through writing)

with Naomi's guidance:

 

Kathy Carlson, MA, Ph.D., MFT

Author, The Flame at the Tip of the Candle:

Interconnectedness as Seen through the Lens of War ~

Working with Naomi has been a total delight. Not only is she able to deeply listen to me and fully grasp my ideas and intentions but she is also wonderfully talented at helping me clarify and plan out the structure and scope of my book. Her understanding and support of me combines with her own great insight and makes her an outstanding and inspiring midwife for creative process.


Rahima Warren, MFT (ret.)

Author, The Star Seer's Prophecy [a novel of the healing journey];

Book One: Dark Innocence ~

“It's been really wonderful working with Naomi. She is so kind and supportive and gentle and appreciative, yet perceptive of the places where my book needed improvement, from commas to emotional nuances. Her faith in my book has been and is still very important to me in keeping my inner critic at bay. 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.” 

Carolyn Shoshana Fershtman, JD, Ph.D., Psychologist

Author, Carrying Joseph's Bones ~

When I began this process, my deepest yearnings were twofold: one, that the words expressed would be a true expression of my soul; and two, that in the process of writing I would find and deepen my relationship with my creativity, and my self.

     Naomi has been a precious guide in both respects. She has provided unwavering support, profound mirroring, and has gently guided and encouraged me, again and again, to write from the place of my true and authentic self. In the process, I have come into relationship with my deepest creative self, after a lifetime of longing and disconnection from it. This gift beyond measure I attribute in large part to Naomi's soulful, loving, supportive and wise guidance. 

     Her intellectual capacity is also profound: she understands and helps me give voice to complex intellectual and conceptual concepts, as well as deeply personal and spiritual ones. She is a truly gifted teacher and guide. Anyone who has the pleasure of working with her will encounter the joy of discovering many hidden gifts and treasures in their work and perhaps more importantly, in themselves.

Roberta Gannon, MFT, poet, spiritual director ~

“Sitting with you was like sitting with a seasoned spiritual director. Very present, very open to what I might say. Responding from the heart to my writings, which was very precious to me. For a person who is longing to be deeply heard, just sitting with you and seeing my spoken work impact you is a precious thing. You help me to see the transcendent aspect of my writing, so that it becomes an 'of course' to think of sharing it outside our meetings, perhaps to publish it.

Laurie White, MFT ~

“Naomi is the bridge between the compassionate and the practical. I appreciate that she holds my need to tell my story and an awareness of what the publisher needs.”

Doreen Hamilton, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist

Author, Essential Speaking: The 7-Step Guide to Finding Your Real Voice ~

“Giving birth to books that heal is certainly your calling.”

 

{NOTE: Naomi Rose has graduate training in psychology as well as over 30 years in the publishing field, and is a lifelong student of healing in various disciplines and modes.}

Other wonderful human beings

who wrote the books of their heart

(or did fruitful explorations through writing)

with Naomi as their book developer:

 

Katayoon Zandvakili

Author, My Beautiful Imposter ~

“Working with Naomi was like having someone who is for you, who keeps seeing you and accepting. She helped me find the true Story beneath the story I'd been telling myself. But first, I had to find my heart. Naomi's role in this was divine. Her gift was to help me further wed my life to my art, and in the process, to heal both. This is what I mean when I say I couldn't have written the book without Naomi. She is truly my fairy godmother of writing.”

Prema Nihan Sanchez

Author, River's Grace: Navigating the Sacred and Mundane in Motherhood ~

“For a year and a half and three hundred pages later, Naomi has been my gifted guide. A great boat woman, she takes her seat quietly at the helm, and listens in a way that always inspires what is waiting to be known, said, and written to come forth. Practically skillful and mindfully soulful, she is helpful at every turn and around all the stops and stages in the process of book making. But mostly, she is the best kind of friend, and that's really what it takes.”

Billy Weprin

Author, Gifts of the Day ~

“Naomi Rose has been instrumental in keeping the project of the book I'm writing alive. Her insight, understanding, encouragement, and caring have helped me to remove confusion, show me a path, and keep me inspired and going. No one else I know could have aided me in such a way.”

Shirley R. McGinnis

Author, Sometimes Love Is Enough ~

Naomi encouraged me to do the joyful thing, instead of the things I think I should do. This was very affirming. And I felt heard, in a very strong initial way. It’s different from trying to write a book on my own, because it feels like what I’m doing is being done in relationship.


Geneva Gates Foote

Author, Living All My Days ~

“When you have tried to find your tongue, your voice, your words—and it appears that there is never really anybody there to hear—it is a great blessing to find somebody who can look at what you've tried to do, and help you hear your own voice.”

Robert Graham Faller

Author, The Overland Route to India ~

“Naomi has been an immense help to me in developing a writing project that had been hopelessly stalled. When I first sought her about a year ago, my writing was merely a collection of notebooks gathering dust on a shelf.
I had long fantasized about fashioning the notes into a coherent narrative, but this was only to be a caffeine dream—that is, until I noticed Naomi’s small ad entitled Writing from the Deeper Self—and I felt right away that should could possibly help me.

    “From our very first meeting I was inspired with an enthusiasm and confidence which has been assiduously transforming my dream into a reality. Several times along the way when I felt that the project was derailed, she carefully helped me put it back together, with encouragement, wisdom, and insight. It has furthermore been a very enjoyable and productive process.

    “I can highly recommend Naomi to anyone who has an unfulfilled dream of writing.”

Rebecca Field

Author, To Catch the Fire of the Kosmos ~
“In my own growth, I found how important being authentic is to me. Naomi reflects genuine authenticity and love more than almost anyone I know. Writing with her is an experience that will stretch the soul. Her quest is to pull out of her protege the inner core of truth that lurks there, always elusive, but a many-splendored jewel once found. I highly endorse Naomi and her work.”

Workshop participants

who experienced Writing from the Deeper Selfin a group format

 

Carolyn Francis, co-author, People Places ~

“Naomi is gifted with the ability to create time and space for her writing students 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. She is also a startlingly gifted writer, whose inspired and deeply satisfying writing provides sustenance to the soul. They are the fire, air, and water of communication. Naomi will cherish you, and your work, as you begin to recognize the beauty and poignancy of your own stories.”

Francine Crockett, social worker & writer ~

“Naomi Rose is possessed of an astonishingly keen perception that, from our first meeting, helpd me to give voice to my creative energy. She gave me techniques that helped me to channel that energy into a structure that moved my writing forward to a place I could not have gone on my own. Naomi gave me permission to take joy in my talent, to own it and best of all, to write, write, write.”
