Clients find that Roz is easy to relate to. She quickly establishes a genuine relationship with her clients and promotes them to be their authentic self. Her non judgmental attitude along with her use of humor and zest for life is inspiring.
She decided to enter the life coaching world after years of experience being a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Connecticut. She found many clients desired support and knowledge beyond the scope of a traditional therapeutic relationship and that the legal and ethical boundaries of the license prevented this.
From an early age she had a desire to explore all that life had to offer. She was outgoing and loved to learn and explore new places and new things. When she hit her teenage years, insecurities set in, she never felt good enough and began to withdraw. She began seeing a counselor in middle school. This she states is what ignited her understanding that often the way we think about our lives and the words we choose to describe it can dictate how we feel.
It became her passion to challenge others to get out of their own thoughts at times, to believe in themselves and to stand up to the inner self critic. She often is heard saying “don’t believe everything you think”, “do not let your own thoughts be what keeps you stuck” and “it only truly can effect you if you let it”. She supports others in understanding that happiness truly is a choice.
Currently Roz lives in Connecticut. She maintains a private therapy practice. She enjoys spending time with her three children and dog. She loves to immerse herself in the daily grind of places near and far by meandering around, interacting with people and finding a good cup of coffee.
