About Me

Hi! I'm Rosie (she/her). I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of both Georgia and Texas. I hold particular experience in trauma-related issues, ADHD, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, and substance use. I also have a passion for helping people process work dissatisfaction, burnout, and career exploration. Throughout my social work career I have passionately advocated for racial, social and economic justice through the empowerment of individuals and groups including BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, people with HIV, people experiencing homelessness, people with mental illness, people with disabilities, veterans, children and youth, and more. As a queer and neurodivergent therapist myself, I am mindful of how people’s identities factor into their experience of the world and their experience in therapy. I believe that people begin to heal the moment they feel heard. While I do incorporate interventions like CBT, EMDR, IFS, and distress tolerance, my first and foremost focus is to be unconditionally on your team and on your side. Past clients have told me that I am a natural listener and am genuine and warm in how I relate to people. When I am not obsessing over the personality psychology phenomenon known as the enneagram, I enjoy laying in the sun with a good podcast, jogging the Atlanta beltline, reading, cooking, yoga, and exploring the local food scene with my wife.

Education & Experience

I hold a Masters of Social Work from the Jane Addams College of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Chicago (2015). I also hold a Bachelors of Social Work from Texas State University. I have been working in private practice for a year, and previously served low income and under-resources populations.
