About me

I am a licensed mental health therapist, licensed in New York and North Carolina with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist and providing human services to diverse communities . I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, gender dysphoria, relationship issues, parenting problems, career changes/goals, obsessive compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and many more.

My therapy style is very down to earth and interactive. I work with individuals, couples and families. My approach combines client centered approach, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness approaches, reality therapy, among many other techniques. The time we spend is based on your needs and specific goals, I am here to guide you and give you the necessary tools to find your best you.

At times, having a partner may feel like if you have an extra job that you don't want to get fired from, I completely understand that feeling and I am here to assist and guide you with many challenges that you may be facing as individuals and as a couple. Everyone has a story and I am here to hear yours. Just as you, I have one myself and this provides me the ability to connect with my community and individuals. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written on Feb 11, 2023 after therapy with Rosa for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning relationship

We are so lucky to have Rosa as our therapist and to be connected with her. She has helped guide us through our marriage, not just as a couple, but individually. She is real and has the ability to navigate individuals through various strategies. Having been through years of therapy myself, I can honestly say that she has been the most effective and I am so grateful!

Dr. Rosa is extremely professional while making us feel very comfortable. She is very experienced working with couples with different backgrounds and helped us find the right tools to bridge our gaps. Our communication has improved since working with her and we would highly recommend her. She was also flexible in helping us find a time that worked for us.
