My Name is Esther Ruber. Over a decade ago, I earned my master’s degree in occupational therapy. My work in this field has allowed me to participate in the healing of individuals with various cognitive and physical conditions across all ages. I have always been an intuitive healer. Working primarily in an institutionalized setting, I have listened to my heart, and reached far outside of the conventional box to help people find their strengths. The birth of my daughter two years ago inspired a cascade of mental, physical and emotional shifts that sparked a great passion for women’s health. January of 2019, I took my Doula certification (DONA) in order to deepen my ability to serve women, not only by having the opportunity to attend births, but by having greater awareness of the internal magic that happens to women around motherhood, even women who choose not to be mothers. A power is ignited when women come together to support each other. Currently, I facilitate the growth of this power through creating educational and social opportunities for women in the community. My first workshop titled “Find your Inner Honey” was successfully received early this year at A Mother’s Haven, a boutique for new moms, as well as a parenting class hub. The workshop’s mission is to frontload women with strategies to integrate self-care as a way of life, empowering overall wellbeing in the workplace. The workshop is projected to be presented at Google, Pandora and DreamWorks before 2021. I look forward to developing more tools for women in the community, individually, and in collaboration. Love, Create, Heal!
