LET'S FACE IT.....
Life happens! We try our best to make the environment around us as comfortable as possible for ourselves, and many times we succeed. And then, there are those times when we just feel stuck and frustrated, perhaps even discouraged.
take control of
Often, if we stay in those 'stuck' places for too long we end up feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, angry, insecure, vulnerable, unmotivated, or just plain moody. It almost feels like there is some hidden knowledge that could unlock that 'stuck' feeling and let us get back to, or begin, feeling motivated and confident about the direction of our lives.
Your Greatest Self.
When done with sensitivity and genuineness in the contained and safe environment I provide, therapy can be a highly useful tool to pry yourself loose from those 'stuck' places so you can begin making safe, healthy, and effective choices for yourself, your famiy, and your future.

My wife threatened to leave me. She said I couldn't "see" her and wasn't listening to what she needed. I didn't want my marriage to end. A buddy of mine had seen Rosanna for something similar and she helped him turn it around. Once we met, Rosanna and I got right down to it, no fancy talk, no side-stepping the issues, just right to the point. She was easy to talk to and very real. My wife and I will be celebrating our 23rd anniversary next month. I can't thank you enough, Rosanna.
I didn't want to see a therapist but my mom knew something was wrong. When I first went to Rosanna I couldn't even look at her but it didn't seem to bother her. She just talked to me and then she said something funny so I laughed and looked up. She just had the nicest face. We started talking about school and my family and how I felt about all of that. She taught me how to put all of those feelings in different places so I could deal with them one at a time. It really made a difference. Thanks for being there for me Rosanna.

I am amazed at how perceptive Rosanna is. Her insight is almost unsettling. She was able to get to the source of my issues within a few sessions and we were able to move forward from there. Thank you, Rosanna, for giving me my life back.
