I help aspiring world changers overcome self-doubt and create healthy intimacy and relationships that free them to be the most of who they are and give their gifts to the world. 

A Message From Lori

Do you ever feel like square peg in a round hole? And does that feeling ever torture or paralyze you? 

I get it. I've been there, and I'm here to help.

The truth is, you are NOT broken.

You have a unique gift that the world needs and you deserve to live. We NEED the real you. And that real you is absolutely worthy of love, belonging, and living the dreams inside of you.

I know this because I’ve seen it for years now, in hundreds of students and clients. They start out in the back row of a group and won’t make eye contact with anyone (and I used to do the same thing!). And over time, my quirky blend of truth-telling and movement gets people lifting their eyes, and relaxing their shoulders, and they learn they are not alone. Ultimately, they uncover their own truth, light up, and inspire others around them in their own unique way. And that is why I’m here. Because the world needs people who have come alive. 

This is vitally important to me because I know the other side, so well. I grew up with a lot of “should’s” in my mind, and so when I started struggling myself, I freaked out. I thought struggle happened to “those people” over there - such as those less fortunate than me. So I judged and tried to hide whatever I was going through. So much so that I landed in the dark, dark place of questioning whether or not I belonged on this earth. (And let’s pause right there. Because you DO belong. And it’s imperative to reach for immediate help if you ever think otherwise.) 

My teenage journey through depression and disordered eating had some key commonalities: never understanding my worth, and deferring to others in search of validation. I carried those themes into adulthood. And then, the unthinkable happened. I was blindsided to realize that with no stereotypical “risk factors,” I had become a victim of intimate partner violence and sexual assault. I made a singular decision to become healthy and whole, and took the long journey of rebuilding my life.

I turned everything inside out and discovered a number of truths that I started to share with others. And it turned out that others were on their own healing journeys and were yearning for their freedom as well. 

It is now my purpose to support others in living these truths, so that we shorten the learning curve and can truly heal, empower and ignite our lives: 

1) We are all survivors. Everyone is in recovery from some type of trauma, neglect or struggle in their lives. 

2) We all have the power make positive changes. Healing is possible, and absolutely necessary if we want to live fulfilling lives and improve our world.

3) No one deserves to be suppressed in who they are. Period. Having one's personal agency or self-worth lessened perpetuates depression, anxiety, and a slew of unhealthy relationship patterns. On the flip side, when we are seen and honored for who we are, we lead deeply fulfilling lives and are able to boldly contribute our gifts to the world.

4) Relationships, starting with the one we have with ourselves, are our foundation. There is no relationship class at school, and sadly, toxic dynamics are all around us, with violence and abuse impacting at least 1 in 3 women and girls and 1 in 4 boys and men. 

5) Everyone has unique gifts the world needs and they are intended to live. The gift that only you have will never be seen again once you are gone. I fiercely believe you deserve to live the truth of who you are, and that we need your gift.

6) Healthy relationships free us to be the most of who we are. Starting with ourselves, healthy relationships are marked by a sense of peace, the ability to show up un-masked, and the freedom to be expressed. A healthy relationship DOES NOT cause you to compromise who you are; rather, it honors your core values and supports your growth.

7) We’re hard-wired for connection. It is entirely possible to reclaim joy, peace and pleasure in your life, and to experience deep connection and intimacy.

 

The Rose Model Story

Not to get too “woo” on you, but in all honesty, The Rose Model made me create it one day while working at a job I loved. The model encapsulated everything I had discovered through five years of intensive relationship study and a lifetime of experience. I tried to ignore its call, leaning toward playing it safe and staying small, until The Rose Model woke me up in the middle of the night for about four years straight. I realized that my job was to share these lessons, because I couldn't sit on everything I’ve learned while others are being suppressed in who they are and squelching the gifts we all need. I left my 15-year career to dedicate myself to a two-fold mission: 1) preventing intimate partner violence and abuse, and 2) sharing the building blocks of healthy relationships that set us free.

The Rose Model starts with the one person guaranteed to walk with you every day of your life: YOU. When we learn to open and connect to ourselves, and shed unhealthy beliefs and patterns of the past, we become a Whole Self. The next step is creating the framework to open to, connect with and "dance" with others in ways that honor everyone's worth. And this is where the magic happens, the real you is released, and we start to move the needle across the globe. 

On a journey to wholeness and connection, we relate differently to the world. We care for ourselves, and stand up after we fall in lieu of continually beating the crap out of ourselves. We attract other whole selves, and maintain higher standards in our relationships. Ultimately, we reverse the trends of toxic dynamics, and become liberated to live our fullest lives and give our unique gifts to the world.

The Rose Model gives clients lifelong tools to create and sustain the relationships they want and deserve. Using lessons from the dance floor, clients walking through The Rose Model don't just talk about change; they EMBODY it.

I fiercely believe that you are here to experience and give the gifts that only you have. When our relationships are not healthy, we are suppressed in who we are and unable to live our purpose. The Rose Model gives you the confidence, self-trust, boundary-setting skills and knowledge needed to form meaningful, nurturing connections and go after your dreams. In doing so you become free, and are able to give to the world in ways that make you come alive.
