I BECAME A THERAPIST.

I wish I could remember that moment of clarity, that moment I finally understood that something was terribly wrong with me and my life because I was abused by my ex-husband. But there wasn’t just one moment as I realized it was a series of many moments. Still to look at me, even back then, you would think I survived in one piece. No. Not really. Not by a long shot. None of us do. There is always death of the spirit, heart, soul and mind to some extent. Sometimes there is also physical death. It was as if I was falling down a well and then little by little I struggled to climb back to the top and I did! Abuse damaged my sense of self and then created distorted feelings and belief systems of what I believed to be true about myself and the world and then created in me maladaptive coping mechanisms and behavior patterns along with intimacy issues.

I wanted to use my heart, soul and mind to embrace those who have suffered. I wanted to use my voice to speak for those who couldn’t. I am made up yesterday’s despair, today's hope and tomorrow's dreams, with mere shreds of myself that have refused to surrender and have refused to die. I am a survivor! So I studied to become a therapist. Through my studies and internships with psychologists, social workers and numerous mental health professionals, I opened my own practice and started to treat my own patients and then more times than not, I was able to identify the root cause during my patient’s first session. In fact, psychologists and social workers consulted with me and referred their patients to me. I wrote articles which were published, did radio interviews, lectured at a hospital and had speaking engagements at libraries.

As you read Rosalie, My Memoir and continue to read The Human Condition which follows, my hope is that you will learn to love yourself by repairing your damaged sense of self and distorted belief system of what you believe to be true about yourself and the world. It also will help you to repair your maladaptive coping skills and behavior patterns. You are never, ever alone.
 
My Mission Statement

My captivation with the mind, together with my humanitarian nature, my varied professional training and experiences, my therapy talents, and through my past and ongoing extensive research and studies, has guided me on a journey in which I am blessed in that I am able to help people. In addition, through my personal past, I have learned to turn my misery into time well spent. Helping others has always been where my heart is and my lifelong desire, both personally and professionally. My goal is to continue on this path.

Lady move. . .

This is a funny rendition about my denial about overeating. I try to convince myself that I don’t have a problem, as I eat, and eat, and eat, until I am faced with the harsh reality of my weight.

Sad Truth about Elder Care

This is a study about abuse and neglect in elder care facilities. In February 2008 my mom became sick. Within a short time she found it more and more difficult to walk and so the hospital advised she go for rehabilitation at a nursing home for a few weeks, before she would return back home to us. So began the search for a nursing home and rehabilitation center. It quickly became clear to me that my mom and other people in need would probably fair better very slowly crossing the street at a red light. My opinion sounds pretty drastic, doesn't it? Well my research left me in a fatal state of dismay and disgust. This is my research study about Nursing Homes / Rehabilitation Facilities.

Sense of Self Therapy

This therapy is about psychological traumas and the inevitable resulting consequences to the self. My psychological trauma was being abused by my ex-husband. To look at me, you would think I survived in one piece. No. Not really. Not by a long shot. None of us do. There is always death of the spirit, heart, soul and mind to some extent. Sometimes there is also physical death. Through reading my story and this therapy you will learn to love yourself by repairing your damaged sense of self and distorted belief system of what you believe to be true about yourself and the world. It also will help you to repair your maladaptive coping skills and behavior patterns. You are never, ever alone.

  • Brothers Forever Together: My sister lost two of her children. Steven was 19 years old when he was died because of a drunk driver. Matthew was 1 year old when he died because of a medical malpractice. Michael is the brother who was able to survive the loss of his brothers. God bless you Michael.
  • "Cremate me and throw my ashes down the sewer".: My brother, Joseph was depressed as were my sisters as we were all mourning the death of our mom on April 23, 2008. My brother, Joseph, lived in Pennsylvania and returned home after our mom’s funeral. My sisters and I called him almost every day and he sounded good, laughing and making us laugh. Joseph then met a woman I’ll refer to as TT. We begged him to move back to New York with us and in the end we did have him home but it was in a casket. This was because of the hell that he went through. His last written words were, "Cremate me and throw my ashes down the sewer" (Published: Mental Health Associates United)

The Unraveling

This is a psychological thriller, about how one night casts a woman onto a path of fatal twists and turns to the point of no return.
