Professional statement

Rosie Via is both a licensed therapist and a professional coach. She sees clients remotely (therapy in PA & VA and coaching worldwide,) and specializes in helping people with anxiety and all things relationship-related (yet often relational work is done individually because it all starts with the self!)

Rosie's typical client is an adult male or female who feels disconnected relationally or is socially anxious, uncertain, or emotionally volatile. They see themselves as less important, less loveable, or less successful than their peers. They feel lonely, left out, different, and discouraged. And they don't know why they feel empty inside when there are people all around them.

Rosie's clients are single, riding the (dreadful) dating roller-coaster, struggling with dull or chaotic marriages, divorced, considering divorce, cheating, recovering from cheating, or adjusting to the loss of a loved one (or beloved pet!) They repeat the same mistakes, often in a quest for love, yet what they are looking for eludes them. "Why?" they ask.

Rosie’s clients often report replaying conversations over-and-over again in their minds, second-guessing themselves and their choices, and wanting more love, fun, and inner calm in their lives. They engage in escapism through drinks, games, lust, weed, or work but the problems are still there. They see (and compare themselves to) others who have "friend groups," soul mates, and beautiful families in beautiful homes and wonder, "Why not me?"

Rosie's approach is compassionate, yet direct. When she sees a pattern, she will call it out and when the client is ready, initiate the change process - thoughtfully, from a place of wisdom, and with patience. (But be warned, she has a great "bs" detector, too!)

Men often appreciate Rosie's direct style and interpretation of women's language and emotions.


Message to clients

You know what's awesome? You. No, really. I know you probably don't believe me, but every human on this planet has great worth and tremendous potential. Yes, including you.

Do you feel valuable? Do you know that your shortcomings and the things you've done wrong don't define your existence? Maybe not, since you are here reading this.

OK, so here's the thing, I've battled the messages in my brain, too, over the years screaming, "You're not good enough!" (Good enough at what? I don't know, and it really doesn't matter because it's just this mean, baseless message from the dark side! But that message and all the others like it will destroy us if we allow it. )

For years, I allowed my thoughts to create icky feelings - mostly a lot of anxiety - then behaviors that ultimately didn't bring the love and joy into my life that I was craving. This only reinforced the message that I was unloveable, not good enough, and a loser! Ugh! What a way to live!

Wait! Here's the good part! I learned that I have authority over my anxious thoughts, and I didn't have to run from them. I learned to cope with the anxious thoughts because they weren't in any hurry to go away!

I can teach you to do the same. Remember, you are awesome. Your stinking thinking may tell you otherwise, but who's calling the shots in your mind? You, I hope. Let's do this.
