“With just a few sessions, Rosemary O’Connor helped me identify the windows of opportunity in my life, and set a manageable course to obtain them. She never waivered in her belief in me, and that alone was worth the price of admission. Her ability to gently delve under the excuses many of us create to avoid looking at what’s not working in our lives is nearly uncanny, yet always feels supportive and safe — like opening yourself to a physical exam with a doctor you’ve known and trusted for years. I strongly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a friendly and wise collaborator in taking an honest look at one’s life and where to go from here, free of self-delusion — and with it, self-sabotage. Best of all is Rosemary’s MO of working in partnership with her clients — thereby helping us gain the self-confidence to learn to problem-solve on our own more honestly and move forward more effectively. I recommend her without reservation and only wish I had found her earlier in my life.”
