Many years ago, as a young woman, I was trying to live with my "issues" by ignoring them and "just moving on". However, it became apparent to me that I couldn't ignore my PTSD symptoms any longer, (though I didn't know what that was at the time), as they were affecting the quality of mine and my husband's lives. A good friend and confidante was seeing Peter Roseman at the time and highly recommended him to me.
As soon as I walked into his office, I knew I was going to experience something different than the usual psychotherapy I had heard about from others. His office was relaxed and comfortable and Peter's demeanor was warm and compassionate from the start (I still remember how he immediately noticed that I was very nervous and asked me if I'd prefer he leave the door open). He reassured me that I was not alone and that I could most definitely feel better and live my life in a positive way.
As Peter guided me through exercises that I could do to change the way I thought and acted, he taught me how to stop blaming and shaming myself for things over which I had no control. In fact, he taught me how to control those things I could and how to let go of those things I can't (and to identify which is which!). During our sessions, he not only taught me about how my issues were affecting me, he listened - actually listened! - to me. I can tell you that in the years that I worked with Peter, (both in individual sessions and in group sessions), he never once appeared distracted or bored. He truly cares about his clients and works WITH them!
Later in my life, when I had children, I experienced Postpartum Depression. My insurance only paid for a small list of therapists and I tried one who was supposed to specialize in PPD. They were of little or no help to me and I decided to see if Peter was willing to work with PPD symptoms. He told me he had recently learned of some techniques that could help, though he hadn't used them specifically with PPD and if it didn't work, he would find some way or someone to help me. I was willing to try and went to see him. What a relief when it worked! Again, Peter was compassionate, kind and concerned about helping me get better.
I highly recommend Peter as a Psychotherapist who is willing to work with you in both conventional and alternative ways to help you feel better about your life and the you're living it!See MoreRead Less"
