Testimonials from Former Mirasol Clients
Mirasol alumna Devon Coombs describes how her stay at Mirasol literally brought her back to life and helped her rediscover joy and passion.
It's Valentine's Day, and this is my valentine to Mirasol:
I am in in love with life, and the beautiful person I have become. How many women do you know who can honestly say this?
When I left for Mirasol, getting out of bed was a chore. I found it hard to smile and quite frankly to live. Today, I can honestly say it's hard to go to sleep because I so look forward to waking up tomorrow. I love my life. It's a simple concept, but at one point in time it was something I thought I'd never obtain. I am no longer an under-eater, an over-eater, an exerciseaholic. I'm back to my life. I go to class now and look forward to helping people. This could have never been possible without first helping myself. Mirasol helped me help myself, save myself. Who would have thought that I could be this happy? I love the skin I'm in. I love the person I have grown to become. I am my own valentine.
— Sincerely, AC
Mirasol not only saved my life, it changed my entire outlook on life. I was introduced to a whole new way of living — a holistic, organic, authentic way that was instrumental in my healing process and continues to be a huge part of my daily life post-Mirasol. My view of what is possible in the world and what I am capable of was expanded dramatically during my 60 day stay at Mirasol. My creativity ... was finally allowed to reemerge and I loved the formal introduction to my inner child who I have continued to develop a beautiful relationship with ever since.
The staff at Mirasol had a profound positive impact on my recovery, and never in my life had I been exposed to so many healers in one place and in such a nurturing environment.
The guidance, wisdom, education and tools I received at Mirasol have allowed me to break past barriers which I was formerly hiding behind. During my stay, I began to develop the most important relationship in my life — the relationship I have with myself and my body and that has been the most positive life-changing experience I have ever had. Thanks to what I learned through Mirasol, I am able to love, respect and honor myself and the wisdom of my beautiful body. — Forever Grateful, DC

LC: I really appreciate how much the staff listens and takes into consideration what people have to say. I also felt like I was really allowed to be myself and be trusted. I feel more confident now leaving because of that. I never thought I would be able to do what I have done and I feel so good about it. I feel like I am really getting a start to having my life back and I love Mirasol for that! — LC

I was at Mirasol in the summer of 2001. It's hard to believe it has been over a decade since I was in treatment. I don't have the right words at the moment to express how thankful I am for you and for Mirasol, and how instrumental to my health and sanity it all was. — PM
