About me

Thank you for stopping by! If you are looking at BetterHelp, odds are that dealing with life’s challenges has been draining your resources. You are not alone, and congratulations for reaching out! People who recognize a need and seek assistance are some of the best and bravest souls I know. You have already taken the hardest step. Now you get to choose who you would like to walk with you to help you identify new resources for growth, healing, and fulfillment. Read on to learn a bit about me to help you decide if my background and approach would be a good fit for this stage of your journey.

Clients tell me they feel heard and valued in our client-centered, solution-focused sessions, and that they experience me as a safe, warm, and caring person with whom to think out loud and explore possibilities. Clients appreciate my non-judgmental compassion which is the context that helps them dig deeper to discover solutions and uncover their own wisdom and courage to BE in the world in a healthier, happier way.

I have been a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2000, serving individuals ages 6 to adult, couples, and families, from many different backgrounds. I bring my experience as a "Third Culture Kid", having been born in the US but having grown up in Brazil until my last 2 years of high school (my conversational Portuguese is still passable!). As an adult I have lived and worked in Japan, Hong Kong, and in various US states, including nearly 4 years as a family therapist in Kodiak, AK. In my first 7 years out of graduate school I was the Marriage and Family Therapist on a forensic custody evaluation team. I also served as a Parenting Coordinator, helping separated or divorced parents navigate co-parenting more successfully. Most of my non-forensic work has been with people dealing with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, stage of life changes, relationship roadblocks, and parenting challenges. My husband and I – 39 years and counting – have been fortunate to parent three children (now grown up) and are thrilled to be grandparents of four!

I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to meet in video sessions, at least initially, as we get to know each other. But I am also available to you via phone if that is more comfortable for you. Each session is 45 minutes and I am available Tuesday - Friday. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response. In a crisis situation, please call 911 or local emergency services, or visit the nearest emergency room.

If you have read this far, perhaps you see the possibility of a growth-creating connection. I would be honored to join your journey in discovering resources to refuel, energize, empower, and encourage you.

Rozanne is the best. She is really interested in me as a person, recalls details from previous visits and has been extremely helpful in my journey. Highly recommend!

Rozanne is an amazing listener and I’m so lucky to have found her

I haven’t had any therapy experience before now really and what little bit I had wasn’t bad, but didn’t feel so “normal” the first time. I felt like this session with Rozanne (the only one so far) was meaningful, enlightening, and helped me change my thoughts and focus from negative thoughts to positive outlooks on the same situation. I have felt like I’m being thrown around under the waves/rapids of a strong water (ocean or river) and getting tossed around into the rocks with no way to save myself. She was able to help me see I’ve already started saving myself by putting on my life jacket (reaching out for help) and by turning my negatives into positives I’m turning my face toward the light and surface of the water, and though it may seem forever, I’m gonna pop up to the surface and get back into the boat. This time, I’ll be rowing the boat successfully with the help of Rozanne!

When I began my journey looking for a therapist I was looking for something in person. Its what I've always known and its what I was always comfortable with. Given the times we faced this past year with the pandemic and although i am back to working in person, my schedule made it tough to meet in person. I had seen advertisements about BetterHelp but never looked into it seriously until it came down to a point of, "I could really benefit from talking with someone about my issuea and if this is what works for me and my day to day to get the help i am seeking, this is what i have to do." And let me tell you, I am so so glad I did! Rozanne has been an angel! What i like most about her "therapy strategy"..... if you that she puts it back on me to do the work to figure out the answer to whatever it is I am struggling with at that point in time. She is understanding, down to earth and just an all around genuine person. I have and will continue to recommend BetterHelp to family and friends. Its been such a blessing for me!

Rozanne blends compassion and accountability in a way that gives me the space and guidance I need to work things out. I greatly appreciate her support in working through some tough issues.

Rozanne is gracious and kind. I never feel judged by her and she is able to make sense of the things I say in session even though I struggle to communicate some difficult feelings. Because we are both believers, I appreciate the way she is able to point me back to my faith and help me see things through a greater perspective. I am glad to have her as a therapist because she holds me accountable, makes me think deeply, and offers gentle encouragement.
