Hi! I'm Dr. Ros and I am Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Ohio. I hold additional certifications as a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Level 2 Trauma Responsive Care Clinician. As if I can't get enough of my love of the counseling field, I also am the Director of a national Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at a university. That's right! I'm not only a counselor... but I train, mentor and supervise other future counselors as well.
In my private practice I am affectionately known as Dr. Ros. I would say people describe me as a down to earth personality that cares about encouraging lives through difficulties in their journey. I also try to help people find ways to live self-fulfilled lives while finding and experiencing happiness! I often say my purpose and passion collided to make me a counselor, because I get to do what I was created to do... which is walk this journey with you! I firmly believe that we can find a way to repurpose pain and find ways that your passion and purpose can collide too.
Trauma Responsive Care
With trauma responsive counseling, we learn about your past, so that we can honor it then change coping patterns that no longer work in your life now or for the future. Learning healthy ways to cope and make decisions, opens the door to live a more authentic life.
Not just grief counseling, but profound grief and loss counseling is provided here. Once upon a time, I avidly said I would never do grief counseling because it was "sad" and "scary". Then I became a widow and solo parent of two kids navigating grief. Not only do I "get it" but I am also trained to help those who encounter profound loss.
Women's Empowerment Counseling
We hear "women run the world" but what is the burden of trying to run the world, run our families, work and be everything all at once. This is a safe place to take the superhero cape off and be vulnerable. You will feel visible, heard and encouraged.
Men's Self-Discovery Counseling
You won't hear catch phrases like toxic masculinity here because men are in a fight for their life! Literally and emotionally. This is a place to process the burdens of being a man in today's society and finding your way to live authentically but to also be happy doing it.

All couples!!! Let's get ready to rumble! If you read that is a WWE voice and chuckled you understand the ups and down being in a relationship can bring. I work individuals TOGETHER in all stages to find the way to communicate better, understand each other (and their trauma brains) as well as your attachment and love language styles. You name it, we can cover it(Whether you've been loving each other a few months or together a few years, couples need a place to learn to deal with complex issues and still have someone understand your dedication and commitment to each other.
A hidden part of society that if you're married long enough (or even short enough) someone in the relationship will become a caregiver in the relationship. Spousal caregivers can often experience loneliness, extreme stress and trauma from the care giving journey. You take care of others, now counseling is the place to learn to take care of you too.
Self-Care / Stress Reduction Counseling
The amount of stress experienced in today's time is greater than ever before. If you are feeling overwhelmed, over worked, and drained, this is the place to begin focusing on how you can make changes mentally and holistically to reduce your stress.
The Therapist's Therapist
Yes this is your safe place too! It was during my time of being a professor in counseling programs that I realized the need for someone who really gets the complexity of counselors not only professionally but how they balance life personally, and interwined. The helpers of the world need a place to lay theire burdens down too... that place is at Brown Beatty Counseling & Consulting.
