I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in the states of New York, North Carolina and South Carolina with 10 years of experience. I work with clients with a wide range of challenges, including depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, and personality disorders. I also assist many people who have experienced trauma, emotional abuse, chronic and complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I am a firm believer that the relationship between the client and therapist is essential to achieve positive outcomes. I am passionate about decreasing stigma related to mental health and increasing awareness and understanding. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will be where you are with our discussion and develop a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to take steps for change. Therapy can be overwhelming and creating a safe environment to talk about and process life’s challenges is very important. I am excited to work with you to help you experience a more fulfilling and happier life.

Ms.Rosa is a great therapist. Although I have A LOT to work on, progress has definitely been made. She has guided me through the most eventful year of my entire life and I don’t know if I would have stayed sane through it all if I didn’t have her. I aspire to have an impact on my clients one day as much as she had an impact on me.
