About Rosie: Rosie received her Master of Arts and Master of Education in Psychology Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University, with a concentration in Bilingual Latinx Mental Health Counseling.

Rosie’s diverse education and professional background has given her a versatile and relatable style, which makes for an easier connection with a wider range of clients.  She is passionate about working with vulnerable populations, who are marginalized due to their ethnicity, race, social-economic status or immigration status. She has devoted most of her life to serving such underrepresented groups, whether working as a counselor to foster children from Brooklyn, helping draw attention to discrimination faced by girls globally at the United Nations, or serving the Latinx community in the South Bronx as a bilingual counselor.

 In addition, she believes that it is paramount to take into consideration how political influences, societal narratives, intergenerational effects and genetic predisposition intersect to shape one’s emotional being.

Rosie brings a compassionate presence coupled with her no-nonsense New Yorker style to help her clients achieve their optimum wellbeing, whether that is improving interpersonal relationships, overcoming self-esteem challenges or pursuing a career change. Most importantly, she focuses on creating a non-judgmental environment for her clients to feel heard, validated and understood.
