Marcos Rosenbaum is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in downtown Boston, MA. He specializes in working with clients navigating life transitions, relationships, cultural adjustment, loss, identity development. Marcos draws from traditional insight-oriented psychotherapy and body-based approaches, including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and hypnotherapy to provide well-balanced and inclusive therapy to his clients. Marcos is trilingual, offering sessions in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
When working with clients, Marcos listens attentively to the person's speech and the presenting issues. He helps, in a short period of time, identify underlying causes to gain an understanding of each client's unique history and their environment. His treatment is psychoanalytically-oriented, helping clients to process how early experiences influence their ongoing beliefs about themselves and their relationships. Marcos particularly enjoys working with individuals exploring questions related to their identity in the face of a major life change, such as career transitions, breakups or divorce, change in financial situation, or empty nesting and retirement.
With a background in community mental health, Marcos has experience working with a diverse clientele, and is committed to providing culturally competent and compassionate care.
