Rosen Method Referrals
There are many wonderful Rosen practitioners all over the world, and here are some resources to help find them.
The Rosen Institute has worldwide listings, including for the United States, but only of practitioners who are dues paying members of the Institute, so if you are looking for someone in your area you might also just want to do an internet search.
The Berkeley Center, which is where Marion Rosen taught and where I trained primarily, has a list of practitioners who graduated from that center here:
My waiting list is long, and I am not going to have room for new clients for quite a while, but there is no reason to wait to begin your journey toward more ease and joy.
In the Los Angeles area, I want to strongly recommend my long term friend and colleague Meg Butler, who is a Rosen Method teacher as well as a wonderful practitioner and who is coming down regularly from Santa Barbara to LA to provide sessions.
"Meg Butler has been using Rosen Method's listening touch and reverent curiosity to help clients find their own path to wellbeing by exploring the connection between their habitual tension and their inner landscape since beginning her internship in 1998. Meg is now a faculty member of Rosen Method; the Berkeley Center. For more info visit www.megbutler.com"
In addition, Karen Baker is a Rosen Practitioner and psychotherapist who has recently opened her practice in Los Angeles. Although I have not worked with her directly, I deeply enjoyed meeting her and would suggest you check her out as well. http://numinoushealingla.com/
And if you are south of LA, Carlos Messerschmidt has been practicing in Orange County for many years. I do not know his work but the people I have sent to him have been very happy with it. https://www.myopaincenteroc.com/rosen-method
Once I have room for you in my practice, you can decide if you still want to try sessions with me, as well as working with Meg or Karen. It is always beneficial to have Rosen sessions from different practitioners, as everyone’s work is individual and nurtures in different ways.
Lastly, I would like to list some of my teachers and teaching practitioners who I have worked with directly and think are wonderful, so if you are lucky enough to be in their area, please look them up. This list is by no means exhaustive, simply those who I know best and whose work I love:
First among those is my sister, Julia Wittich, who is a marvelous Rosen, Somatic Experiencing and Conscious Uncoupling practitioner in upstate New York/Pennsylvania border 2 hours north of NYC.

In addition to in person sessions, there are now numerous online resources that are also very effective in teaching Rosen skills for relating to yourself. People are benefitting enormously from them, and we are discovering new and delightful ways to use Rosen method, thanks to the pandemic.
The Berkeley Center is hosting some wonderful online gatherings for beginners as well as those with experience. https://rosenmethod.com/courses/
The British School also has a number of excellent online offerings: https://www.rosenmethod.co.uk/
