Dr. Amy Beth Rosenberg, PSYD

Psychologist

I am a licensed psychologist who provides individual, couples, family, and group psychotherapy for individuals across the adult lifespan, ranging from young adults to geriatrics. I place emphasis on establishing a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship in an effort to help patients facilitate meaningful life changes, to ease suffering, and to work toward achieving personal goals.

I have a unique interest in helping individuals, couples, and families experiencing major life transitions, struggling with relationship issues, or navigating challenges associated with LGBTQ concerns. I also enjoy working with individuals who are adjusting to acute or chronic illness, facing end-of-life issues, and those who are coping with grief/bereavement.

I utilize an eclectic approach tailored for each unique individual’s needs, focusing on treatment modalities shown by research to be most effective. I am dedicated to creating a warm and caring atmosphere wherein positive life changes can be achieved and a healthier lifestyle can be established.

Regardless of the obstacles someone may be facing in life, I consider it a privilege to help them to establish meaningful change. I understand that each individual I meet with is taking a leap of faith and placing trust in me as a provider and in the work that we can achieve together. Through listening, guiding, and learning alongside you, I take pride in using my experience to support you in achieving outcomes that will be meaningful for your life.

Depression can look different for each person. Some of the warning signs that you might notice are: fatigue/loss of energy, feelings of helplessness, worthlessness, or guilt, impaired concentration, insomnia or hypersomnia, a loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed, restlessness, change in appetite or weight, and/or thoughts you might be better of dead.
