My Philosophy

Welcome, my name is Rose Marghi (LCM219) and I created Rose Counseling Center in January 2005. I bring compassion and experience to my clients from 20+ years as a therapist and nurse. At Rose Counseling Center, I offer teen, college student, and adult individual therapy. Family therapy is offered for adults/parents of infants through adult children.

I believe all people have a common thread of humanity that connects us. We laugh, we cry, we joke, get disappointed, feel sad, make mistakes, get angry or hopeful. In this way we are all similar. I also believe that every human being has a uniqueness to offer the world – their perspective, their individual voice. I see humans like flowers of one garden. We all need to experience consistent sunlight, water, good soil, and protection in order to grow and take our place on the earth. However, all of us experience droughts, poor soil, hurricanes, hail, and overwatering. These adverse conditions can stunt and divert our growth, causing us to wilt and wither.

I believe that like helping a flower to express its beautiful color, essence, and perfume to the best of its ability, therapy is about helping humans express their full voices, opinions, and perspectives, and to heal from adverse growing conditions. Let me help you realize your potential and bloom like the strong and beautiful rose.
