With compassion and understanding, she works with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
Rosa Bailey is the mother of one daughter and has been a single parent for over 10 years; this experience allows her to have a greater understanding of the struggles that single parents and those trying to blend families face.
