Rose Rosato, MA, LPC (Founder/Psychotherapist)

Rose Rosato


Welcome to Balance and Thrive. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. With 35 years of experience in the mental health field as a counselor and psychotherapist, I have maintained a well-established practice in Bergen County for 30 years. I am highly experienced in individual, group and family counseling and psychotherapy in addition to workshops, lectures, program development and administration.

I have worked in a variety of community and private agencies with diverse populations and services. I have written a template for parenting titled Raising Thriving Children ®© and an identity building Workshop titled the Thriving Model Workshop ™©.    

My areas of experience include depression, anxiety, women’s issues, trauma, life transition, adolescent issues, family issues, addiction, gifted population, eating disorders and more. My approach is empathetic, evidence based, and client centered.  Based on my client’s needs, I integrate one or more of the many modalities I am trained in to provide focused and highly effective treatment. I continuously learn. While I am well educated to work with many disorders, I specialize in trauma, gifted populations, anxiety, and depression. I weave psychoeducation, which includes the latest social science and neurobiology advances, into my treatment to help clients have a firm understanding of their treatment.  In 2011, I expanded my practice and created Balance and Thrive, a center established to provide premier mental health services.  I have carefully chosen qualified, experienced, and compassionate professionals who understand the importance of mental health providers prioritizing their own emotional and physical health and are dedicated to continual professional development. The therapists each have their own area of expertise which increases the Center’s knowledge base. This enhances the quality of clinical treatment and allows us to provide a team approach to treatment when needed. I am passionate about equality, self-compassion, empowerment, and genuine connectedness to the world.
