Ana Rosa Najera (she/her) is a Spanish-English bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Green Belt Nia Instructor, Certified TRE Provider, and Certified Facilitator of The Resilience Toolkit. A lifelong helper, Ana Rosa earned her undergraduate degree in social science from UC Irvine and obtained her masters in social work from Boston University.
Ana Rosa’s desire to love and support others through difficult times led her to global volunteer opportunities; serving disabled adults in Lyon, France and caring for HIV positive orphans in Tanzania. Her career as an LCSW has focused on guiding families with young children through transitions and trauma. Whether her clients’ needs centered on developmental delays, the challenges of the foster care system, abuse, or neglect, Ana Rosa found that the ability to self-heal was the best gift she could give anyone struggling to meet life’s challenges.
Personally, Ana Rosa experienced the healing benefits of dance, leading her to become a certified Nia instructor. When her workplace brought in TRE to help social workers minimize vicarious trauma, she discovered a new modality of somatic healing that turned out the be transformational. After over 15 years of working in social services, she added the therapeutic tremor as a powerful tool to regulate the body and tune into one’s intuition. She integrates her variety of skills and training for clients looking to reduce stress and return home to their bodies. She looks forward to continuing her journey as a healer with Lumos Transforms.
Professionally she has been certified through Parents as Teachers Home Visitation Program, facilitated parenting classes for over 10 years, and most recently became a fellow through the Reimagine Lab with Blue Shield Foundation to design preventative strategies to combat domestic violence.
You can also find her at Self Integration Guidance.com or We Bloom.com where she also shares her passion for this work in, and with, her community of Long Beach.
Ana Rosa can watch an entire season of a Netflix show in one night! She can plan anyone’s vacation, will dance to any music that’s playing, and will always tell people it’s Colombia, not Columbia.
