About Me

Hello! I am Dr. Rose. I am a psychologist with 15 years of experience providing therapy services. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the Cincinnati VA Medical Hospital and obtained my graduate education from Indiana State University. I am dually licensed in Wisconsin and Indiana. While residing in Indiana, I worked in a very rural and low income area. I am currently based in Wisconsin, where I have the opportunity to work with individuals from both the more populated areas, as well as the rural areas. Additionally, I am based along the I94 corridor, so I have an interest in providing treatment to individuals who are victims of sex trafficking. Other populations I have a strong interest in working with are the LGBTQ+ population, specifically transgender individuals. I also work with individuals with depression, Bipolar, anxiety, ADHD, anger, trauma, self-esteem, and relationship problems. In my work with individuals, I find that it can often be helpful to explore the impact that the childhood upbringing and nuclear family has on present problems and relationships. I typically use an eclectic approach in sessions, adopting a variety of techniques. Some techniques I typically use are Psychodynamic, mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Person-centered Therapy. However, I most often use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.

My therapeutic approach is first, and foremost, to be real. You can always expect that I will give you honest and direct answers. I am a caring provider and I want you to succeed in being the best person you can be. I will work closely with you as a team to help you accomplish your treatment goals.

Dr. Fernandez is a counselor that is easy to talk to. She helps you question where you might be acting biased and challenges your thinking. She listens and understand your concerns and tries to steer you in a positive direction. I have benefitted greatly from having her as a counselor. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with anxiety, depression, family & relationship problems.

Dr. Fernandez clearly has a wealth of experience. I like that she is tasked oriented and will use assignments to help me see things from a different perspective. I also like her demeanor in sessions. She enables me to talk about hard topics in a less emotionally charged way.

Working with Dr. Fernandez has really helped me. I was hesitant to start counseling, and afraid that it would be overwhelming or that I couldn't do it. Dr Fernandez has made it approachable and I feel like I'm really making progress. It's not a magic bullet; these things take time. But I'm 3 months in and I'm feeling like I finally have a healthy way to talk about things, and I have someone who understands me and really listens/provides great perspective. I am learning more about myself and am committed to improving myself, and I feel really motivated to tackle things that have bothered me for years that I was previously afraid to confront alone. Dr. Fernandez has really made a difference.

Dr. Fernandez is extremely helpful and has a very practical approach to therapy. I have only had two sessions, but she has already provided me with a lot of tools for working through the issues I am facing. She is extremely intelligent and always has the answers to help me address my problems. She is great and I am really excited for on going therapy with her and how she is going to help me better myself.
