Rosemary Carroll, LPC

Have you ever put together a puzzle without seeing the picture first? I so enjoy the challenge of seeing how all the pieces fit together to create a whole. Therapy is similar. My clients come to me with various pieces of their lives that don't seem to fit well. My role is to facilitate a person's renewed sense of vision for the parts of the puzzle that aren't working the way they would like them to. I have a plethora of tools I use to ensure my clients reach optimal levels of success.  My experiences of working with children, families, in leadership roles and in diverse situations has given me insight into the myriad of complexities that continually impact another's ability to make decisions which could have life altering consequences. As a therapist, I am an objective participant who guides and facilitates my client's awareness of how each piece of their life puzzle can be used to create a beautiful tapestry.

Professionally, I graduated with my master’s in counseling in 2002 and I became fully licensed shortly thereafter. My experience has been in agency, private practice and school counseling. I continually stay up to date in current practices and techniques and I am especially interested in trauma and how I can help the survivor thrive.

Rosemary's Specialties include:

  • Trauma
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Social skills development
  • Anger management
  • Teen issues
  • Difficult relationships
  • Self esteem
  • Women’s issues
  • Career counseling

Angela Arche, LMSW

Making the decision to seek therapy is incredibly courageous. I have over 19 years experience working as a Social Worker and I am a licensed Master's Social Worker. I have worked with a diverse population with a variety of diagnoses and situations. However, I believe that each person's experience is unique and while they may be similar to someone else's no two people or situations are the same, therefore neither are the solutions. I provide a non-judgmental, compassionate, therapeutic environment. Working together is essential to creating a good therapeutic relationship and one that is most beneficial. I find that creating meaningful goals with clients based on specific needs really helps this process.

Life is not meant to be figured out alone. I feel both honored and privileged to work with my clients helping them to overcome their obstacles and empowering them to do so.
