Rosalynn joined the Corbella Counseling team in 2019 and brings a unique set of skills in her therapy sessions with clients. In her work with clients who range from 3 years old to adults, Rosalynn incorporates a whole systems approach, considering the different systems that individuals exist in and are affected by such as work/school and families. Her kind and nurturing energy and her ability to break things down into manageable tasks, make the therapeutic relationship so much more inviting.
