Welcome! My name is Alexandria Romero, and I’m so happy you are here! So, who am I, and how can I help you? By profession and passion, I facilitate workshops, retreats and online courses that focus on grieving and healing, empowerment through self-care, and expressing authenticity through writing and creativity. I work as an Emotional and Social Learning teacher, and Prevention Coordinator (DV/SA) for kids and teens, and I am the author of a children's book that speaks to a child's grief over the death of a parent, entitled, "Where Is My Daddy?" Here's a little bit about my story~
In December of 2012, when I was six weeks pregnant with Amelie, and mom to two year old, Ava, my beloved husband, Mitch, died. I became a widow at 30 years old.
Weeks after Mitch died, with the amazing support of the Chairwoman of my program and after 4 years of schooling, I graduated with my Master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology, from Sofia University.
Intuitively I knew I needed solitude, nature, and community to heal through the devastating loss of my husband. I was utterly heartbroken, but thankfully determined to find joy and light each day for my two year old daughter, and my daughter in utero. My heart guided me to return to Costa Rica, the country where I had been an Elementary School teacher and had a wonderful community, and where Mitch and I first lived together as a married couple. Within 10 weeks of Mitch's death, my daughter and I had returned to Costa Rica.
I spent the next year and a half in Costa Rica, before returning to Southern California, processing my grief daily through writing, being in nature, and finding solace in both the solitude and supportive community. It was there that I home-birthed Amelie, and where Ava attended my dear friend's Montessori Preschool. I learned how to feel connected to my husband spiritually, through meditation and attuning to the subtle, and sometimes not-so-subtle signs. I found ways to creatively express my feelings through dancing, writing, and singing. And as difficult as widowed parenting was, I felt grateful that I was alive to do it.
I began creating workshops and online courses, to help people live more mindful and heart-centered lives. I started working one-on-one with people to to help them heal the relationships with themselves and the people they love. I taught grief workshops for kids and their parents. And I published my first children’s book, Where Is My Daddy?, a book created to help kids navigate through grieving and healing through the death of a parent.
Now, I process my grief when it arises, and I help my kids process their grief as it arises. And I let the grief serve as a reminder of what is of truest importance in my life- LOVE. The peace in my heart continues to grow and expand with the years.

Much love to you on your journey, and thank you so much for being here!
