Dr. Rosch provides individual therapy, parent guidance, and neuropsychological/psychological assessments.

Dr. Rosch serves as the testing consultant for Sidwell Friends middle school. Previously, Dr. Rosch served as a testing consultant for Sidwell Friends upper school.
In psychotherapy, Dr. Rosch utilizes an integrative approach. When working with preschool- and elementary-school age children, Dr. Rosch uses play therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to help patients who struggle with issues related to: adjustment, ADHD, learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, disruptive behaviors, attachment/separation, divorce, grief/loss and trauma. With adolescents and young adults, Dr. Rosch uses insight-oriented psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure therapy with response prevention to help individuals with challenges related to anxiety, depression, identity development, learning struggles and grief/loss. Dr. Rosch provides an individualized, empathic and practical approach to working with parents to help them think through their expectations and goals, as well as creating and monitoring behavior plans that are feasible for each family.
In the area of assessment, Dr. Rosch conducts neuropsychological and psychological evaluations of children, adolescents and adults. She also administers cognitive tests that are necessary for admission into independent schools. Dr. Rosch also advocates for students and their families at 504 or IEP meetings to help ensure that services are being provided and in the proper manner.
With a background in clinical and school psychology, Dr. Rosch believes that her work with children and adolescents necessitates working with the whole system, not only the patient and their parents. As such, in her role as a therapist and evaluator, Dr. Rosch frequently consults with teachers/tutors, other medical professionals, and caregivers who have important relationships with the child/adolescent.
Dr. Rosch’s education and philosophy is rooted in a psychodynamic understanding of individuals and systems. Dr. Rosch believes the best way to bring about long-lasting change is to increase an individual’s awareness of themselves and their relationships so that they can identify and meaningfully work towards their goals. While cognitive-behavioral and behavioral approaches to psychotherapy are extremely useful, therapy is hard work. It is most effective when everyone agrees on what they want to achieve. Prior to establishing her own practice, Dr. Rosch provided psychotherapy and testing assessments at the Wake Kendall Group. She has also supervised graduate students at George Washington University in the area of testing assessment. She completed the Psychoanalytic Studies Program at the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis.
