It's been such an impactful year full of growth, change, and development with Rosemary's help. She's a great listener, insightful, full of light and a fervent relationship with God. I can't imagine having navigated the challenges that 2022 brought without Rosemary as an aid.

Rosemary is very kind and compassionate. She listens closely to what you say and has given me real insight into why I do certain things or think certain things. She is very good about giving concrete actionable goals so you can focus on exactly what you need to do. I’ve been able to make real progress in the areas I was concerned with and my family can see that too. I’m very grateful that I was paired with her for therapy and wish I had decided to do this sooner. Thank you, Rosemary!

It was phenomenal to work with Rosemary Maltese. She asks nicely placed thought provoking questions so you can better understand and have clarity on situations you might be facing. She was personable and easy to connect with! I thoroughly enjoy working with her!
