Saludos, I'm Dra. Rocio
I'm a Xicana/Mexicana Indigenous woman in diaspora. I am a Seer, Medicine Woman, Counseling Psychology Ph.D., and an unschooling mama.
I have 21 years of experience conducting cultural, social, and psychological research, 18 years of experience as a healer, and 17 years of experience teaching courses in anti-oppressive work and helping skills.
While I was trained as a psychologist and have thousands of hours in clinical training and working with folx in therapy, I have chosen not to be a licensed psychologist because it is not aligned with the colonial field. I believe in therapy as it is Indigenous after all, though I do not believe in the Eurocentric & diagnostic field of today.
I am multiskilled and yet, what I feel are my unique gifts are my heart, my deep sense of compassion, my visionary leadership, and my ability to tap into the spiritual realms.
My work is at the intersections of decolonizing, spirituality, and wellness. And what I bring to my work with folx is my psychic, empathic, claircognizant, clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient, & mediumship abilities.
My supernatural gifts have always been with me, since childhood and these abilities also run deep in my blood lineage. I come from a long line of healers from both my maternal and paternal lineages.
I offer this work not as an educator, but as a medicine woman.
I am on the Nusta Paqo or Earth based Indigenous Shamanic medicine woman path in the Q'ero Inca Nation tradition in an apprenticeship with Pampa Mesayoq Don Alejandro Apaza of the Apaza family lineage and initiated by medicine woman Marilu Shinn as a medicine woman in Earth Based Indigenous Shamanism. I am deeply committed to this lifelong path and continue my learning. I am devoted to showing up in the way I am called to bring in the times of right relationship with humanity and our Mother Earth.
It is my deep honor to walk this path and to facilitate healing through the gifts entrusted to me by Spirit, my guides, and ancestors.

A life of ease, harmony, and abundance is important to me and one that I hope for all of us. And so, I protect my energy, honor my motherhood and family time so that I can serve in a way that honors all of me and doesn't collude with colonial patriarchal servitude.
Thank you for honoring all of me and not just my work. It is my prayer that this becomes part of the New Earth, a return to our sacred ways.
