Rose Rizzo


About Me

My name is Rose, and I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Massachusetts. I graduated from Boston College and have been working in the field for 5+ years. I currently am a Client Services Manager at Mystic Valley Elder Services. While I specialize in older adults, I have immense experience with mental health, substance abuse, and family conflict.

One of the biggest challenges in life can be family conflict and the moving pieces that go with it. I have experience working with couples of varying ages and working through the best solutions to those problems. Being a younger counselor, I am able to bring fresh ideas to try to resolve conflict. I bring a non-judgmental environment to allow for open, honest conversation. My mission is to assist you in finding your own unique ways of leading a productive and fulfilling life. I often use a strength-based approach to better help clients see their own potential. My job as a counselor is to help both parties be more successful at targeting any problems that have come up for you at this point. Together, we will do this through a combination of video calls, text messages, goal setting, worksheets, and more. I look forward to taking this journey alongside you.

Written by J.E. on Nov 18, 2020 after counseling with Rose for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Rose is a great listener and does a great job of helping you work through your own stuff. She has a very balanced tone where she can tell you to do something that you may not want to hear, but in a way that isn't offensive or off-putting (that's a talent). She has been a great help in my grief journey.
