"I had a couple of sessions with Kayla a few years ago, in the midst of my Saturn return. O what a rough time, yet Kayla was so helpful and supportive through massive, difficult life shifts. After one hypnotherapy session, I felt so much more peaceful and empowered, and quit smoking cold turkey! (Chain smoker, mind you). During the detox period, I also received a reiki session from her. MARVELOUS! I was basically floating when I left. She is so kind and compassionate, a genuine healer. She took time to talk, and to get to know each other, which helped me feel comfortable, like receiving support from a true friend. It can be difficult to pick out a healer to suit, so I want to let you know, this woman is genuine and authentic and warm and compassionate and effective. I hope she does online sessions, as I am faaar from Santa Cruz these days, but she is the highest quality healer I have interacted with to date." - Frankie on Google

"I've worked with Kayla over the past nine years. She is a wise, compassionate and gifted astrologer. I've seen Kayla for tarot, astrology readings and reiki - noting there are other mediums she also uses in her practice as well. What I appreciate about my relationship with Kayla is, how over the past nine years, she has helped to guide me through new experiences, highs and lows by deeply tapping into myself. While she has illuminated what might be influencing various thoughts or feelings - she was always able to help me connect that to how the universe is speaking to us, and through us. Not only has she helped me walk my own path, I highly recommend her to others who are seeking to do the same. Thank you, Kayla for your wisdom and care over the years. Grateful for our continued connection!" - Rochelle R. on Yelp

"Kayla is a very bright and understanding individual. She is very professional and I enjoyed our session very much. She was very in tune with my problem and had a lot of suggestions to alleviate it. I really think that she can help me." - S.M, Santa Cruz, Square

"I started weekly Reiki sessions in June '15 after receiving a serious health diagnosis. A couple months later my doctors told me I had an amazing response to the medical treatment. I attribute my current good health in large part to Kayla." - Rosemary R., Watsonville on Yelp

"An exceptional spirit of fine intellect and a unique healer. She is of unwavering character and an adventurous explorer of human experience." - Larry Atwell, Morgan Hill on Facebook

"Every time I feel I need a little extra boost in my life I know I can count on Kayla to be able to help me. She is able to quickly identify where my real problem lies and can guide me to more than one viable solution. I love going through the hypnotherapy sessions with her... I always come away with a new refreshing discovery about myself." - Lisa Carter, Santa Cruz LinkedIn

"I have been seeing Kayla for a few months now and continue to be very impressed with her services. She is very experienced, professional, and can accurately help and provide invaluable insights to improve your life... All her services are on the spot. She is kind, welcoming, and will help you obtained the answers you are looking for. Very clean comfortable environment as well." - Alleyne H. Long, Santa Cruz on Google+

Kayla has worked with me for five years I have received Reiki and hypnotherapy. She has been a huge blessing for me in my healing from trauma and big life changes. Reiki with my shoulder injury help me not have a frozen shoulder. A whole body effect. Thanks for all of your loving work. - JoAnn Tennent on Yelp

Kayla knows what she is doing. If you have something that you need an extra push to overcome I am confident she will help you just like she helped me. - Matt R. on Yelp

Angie's List Review: "I visited Kayla for hypnotherapy to help improve my overall career happiness. Kayla's approach is to guide you in various ways to find answers for yourself -- she will not tell you what to do. In my case, under hypnosis, she led me to explore what aspects of my work were most satisfying to me. As result, I gained some valuable and surprising insights into my own motivations. As an experienced practitioner, Dr. Rose is insightful, compassionate, encouraging and very professional. I highly recommend her for hypnotherapy." - Charles Chapin, San Jose

Yelp Review: "Kayla has my deep gratitude for answering the call to do what she does. From my first session with her, I felt as though I was thrust back into the flow of the universe, after a difficult period of feeling afloat without direction. I think what I most appreciate and respect about her is that she is a teacher; from the start, it was clear to me that she wants to help me find and be the solution. She is completely forthcoming with a remarkable array of useful information and resources. I don't know if anyone has ever helped me more, in such a short period of time." -Clarissa B., Santa Cruz
