About Me

Hello and Welcome! I am Hosi Rosta and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been doing therapy for about 7 years and have had a variety of different experiences. Heres a little about me to guide you into finding what you are looking for.

I started my experience working in a rehab center with all men where I learned and provided support to the clients who struggled with addictions, life stage changes and family dynamics. I then went on to work with adolescents and their parents that were in the age range of 4-25 YO for about 5 years. There I worked with the children as my clients but incorporated the families for individual and family therapy to provide support for areas such as depression and anxiety, divorce, substance use, self esteem struggles, grief and loss, trauma, and acceptance of life changes. As well as working with the parents(which are not always the traditional "mom and dad") to provide support to them within their own couple dynamic. Then to further my knowledge base, I then went to work within a corrections setting and working with male and female inmates. Which included many of the above areas as well as severe trauma, gang related issues, legal struggles, coping skills, and managing overall mental health while being incarcerated.

My approach is fluid and I like to meet the client where they are. I truly enjoy building a relationship with my client to be able to provide the support to the as they may need. I’m also aware of being culturally competent & aware. The client is in charge, I am merely the flashlight that shines the light in areas that may need some work. I like to combine different theories and models to be able to custom my therapy to what the client needs. Such as using CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), MI (Motivational Interviewing), TF-CBT (Trauma Focused CBT), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). I believe in peoples energy and the energy they put out is what they will get back; its just that sometimes that energy needs to directed in the right direction and that's what I am here to help with! Finding your goals and setting them in therapy is truly a major key in successfully obtaining the happiness you seek.

Therapy is a very intimate and personal journey and I encourage any one to make sure they find the right fit for themselves. If any of my words click for you I look forward to working with you. Good luck and take care!

Written by E.V. on Jun 06, 2020 after counseling with Hosi for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, anger management, and coping with life changes

I have had 3 sessions with Hosi and I have truly enjoyed the conversations with her. She has slowly but steady set goals for me to improve my self awareness.
