About Carla R. Rosinski
Therapy and sexual health counseling
Welcome to your first step of healing and growth.
I have over 15 years of experience assisting people in overcoming obstacles to their happiness. I guide clients in finding deeper intimacy and connections with themselves and others. I have expertise working with couples and individuals of all genders, sexual orientations, and relationship structures.
My office is a neutral, non-judgmental place for you (or you and your partner(s)) to discuss what’s causing your suffering so that we can figure out the best ways to help you feel better.
My style of therapy is compassionate and sex-positive. You can comfortably discuss whatever you need without fear, blame, or disapproval.
My therapy approach is informed by psychodynamic, Feminist, systemic, trauma and queer theories. I will develop a specific treatment plan for your unique needs. I often incorporate mindfulness to help you be more present in the here and now. When appropriate, I also help you make mind/body connections and understand how your emotions affect your health.
I am Honest, Direct and Connect Deeply with My Clients
I have the ability to connect on a deep level to create a strong healing relationship with you. I am honest - integrity is important to me. I can handle strong emotions and support you through them. Together, we can map the direction of therapy and heal the issues that have gone unspoken and cause problems in your life.
I am comfortable discussing all topics and problems. I am direct and will be fearless in the pursuit of your goals while being sensitive to your needs and timing.
I Work with Personal Issues in the Context of Social and Cultural Influences
My work is informed with a social and sexual justice perspective, while always being mindful of culture. I’m a long time activist and advocate in the LGBT community and other areas that impact my clients.
Prior to being a therapist in private practice, I worked in a range of nonprofit settings serving both adolescents and adults. These included working in AIDS Service Organizations in the 90’s, as well as Rape Crisis Centers and Community Health Centers with a diverse range of client concerns.
In addition to being a therapist, I have been an advocate and activist providing training and consultation to larger systems including schools, DSS, Police Departments, and community organizations on topics such as trauma informed care, substance use, and understanding and supporting our Trans and Non-binary youth.
My goal is to support you in being who you authentically are. I want you to feel good about yourself and your relationships, as well as your sexuality and identity.
