Director/Mental Health Clinician: 

Rose Celia Rosato, MA, LPC

With 28 years of experience in the mental health field as a counselor and psychotherapist, I have maintained a well-established practice in Bergen County for 23 years. My practice provides individual, group and family counseling and psychotherapy in addition to workshops and lectures. I have worked in a variety of community and private agencies which have provided me with experience with diverse populations and services. Areas of experience include: depression, anxiety, women’s issues, trauma, life transition, adolescent issues, family issues, addiction, gifted population and more. 

 In 2011 I expanded my practice and created Balance and Thrive, a center established to provide integrated mental health and wellness care for individuals and families. I have carefully chosen qualified, experienced and compassionate professionals to assist me in providing optimal health and wellness care to the people I serve. Each team member at Balance and Thrive works from an integrated perspective designed to help individuals and families enhance genuineness and insight and provide them with education and skills necessary to help achieve emotional balance and fulfillment in life. We will also provide referrals for services not offered at the center and if needed coordinate services.
 
I would like to welcome you to Balance and Thrive. Thank you for your interest in the services we provide.  We will work our hardest to help you achieve your goals. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or suggestions.
