I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Pennsylvania with 5 years of experience as a therapist and educator. I have worked with teens and adult clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, adoption issues, and teen problems. I also helped many people who have experienced sexual abuse and trauma.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in the biblical principles of treating others as I wish to be treated with respect, sensitivity, compassion, and dignity. My approach is solution focused, strength based, and client centered. I believe the client is the driver of the therapeutic relationship; thus, I will tailor our dialog and treatment to meet your unique and specific needs.
I applaud you for taking the first steps toward a fuller, healthier and happier life; and I am here to support, encourage and empower you.
I look forward to working alongside you.

Rosa balances her experience and expertise very well with a humble approach that meets you where you are. She has helped me grow to become better for myself and others, and has consistently been available when things were difficult and I needed someone to talk to. She is not shy in asking the hard questions that I'm afraid to ask myself and helps me confront them and find my authentic answers in a way that is respectful and kind. I would recommend her to anyone looking for genuine healing or growth from or through a difficult season of life. If you're willing to put in the work she'll help guide and support your efforts all the way.
