Candace M. Rosen M.S.W., L.C.S.W.
Candace has been doing psychotherapy and healing work for over 35 years and she knew at an early age that her purpose in life was to be a healer.
After getting her MSW degree at Arizona State University, she worked for 5 years at a private Psychiatric Hospital in Phoenix, where she learned individual, group, family therapy, as well as Psychodrama. She worked with a wide variety of patients with various diagnoses, such as Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, BiPolar, Schizophrenia, etc. This experience gave her a broad background in therapy. At this time, she also trained for two years, 300 hours in Gestalt Therapy and became certified in this modality.
Candace then went through the biggest heartbreak and trauma of her life, when her 22 year old son was killed in a hit and run accident in 1996. This was truly a “Dark Night of the Soul” for Candace. She went into intensive therapy and also trained in Grief and Bereavement with the American Academy of Grief and Bereavement. She has done grief workshops with Native American Tribes in Arizona and Candace has helped many people with their journeys through Grief and Loss.
Candace is also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and is currently training in Stephen Levine’s Somatic Experiencing Therapy and is in the second year of a three year course. She is adept at working with the body to release trauma.
Candace has been on the Leadership Team for the Star Foundation Workshops since 2003 and has been a Facilitator at Star for 15 years and has also done Intensive work with individuals at Kenyon Ranch. She believes in following the client’s process and loves helping people heal and to find the gifts and meaning in their wounding. She is now a Staff Member of Pocket Sanctuary.
