Rose helps adult and teenage clients work through a variety of issues, from mood disorders such as depression to relationship challenges with couples. A trauma-informed therapist, she describes her style as “eclectic,” having been “trained in many different modalities that help people heal their pain, whether it is mental, emotional, or physical.”
“I like helping people,” said Rose, who brings nearly 40 years of experience to Gifford. “For me it’s about making a heartfelt connection and creating a safe space for a person to address whatever is bringing them to therapy.”
Rose is a licensed clinical mental health counselor whose approach is centered on the mind/body connection. She earned her master of arts in counseling psychology from Antioch University New England in Keene, N.H., and a bachelor’s degree from Burlington College. She has completed training programs in several models, including Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Somatic Experiencing. Her previous experience includes many years as a psychotherapist in private practice as well as part of teams at Spruce Mountain Inn in Plainfield; Springhill Retreat in Ashby, Mass.; University of Vermont School of Medicine in Burlington; Rutland Mental Health Services; and Vermont Women’s Health Center in Burlington, where she co-founded the counseling program. When not seeing clients, she enjoys staying active and working with her hands: She builds boats, makes jewelry, hikes, snowshoes, bicycles, and kayaks.
