Each person’s journey looks unique and different, and Rosann is committed to making each step of the process as comfortable as possible for her clients.

A journey that began as a teen

Rosann ‘s first psychology class in high school (in the Detroit area where she’s from) had her hooked on how the mind works. She made her way west to attend undergraduate school at Central Michigan University in pursuit of learning about psychology and families. Following her undergrad time at Central, Rosann worked with children with autism for a few years and then attended Western Michigan University to focus on counseling and family and marriage therapy. Central and then Western?! Yeah, she knows about the HUGE rivalry between the universities and you’ll have to ask her what side she’s on! Although she misses the major sports teams of Detroit – even when they struggle, (hey, we ALL do at some point) – she is LOVING West Michigan.

Exercise, Relaxation, Good Food

Besides laying on the beach and soaking in the sun, Rosann enjoys SUP boarding, and you can often find her on Reeds Lake with her paddleboard. She also loves curling up at home with a good book, movie, or cup of tea. In addition to being at home, she enjoys checking out new restaurants that pop up all over West Michigan.

Rosann is a wife to a loving, supportive husband who is a sales engineer. Even though they have very different careers, they share a love for the outdoors, their two dogs, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
