Relationship Problems?
Don't Settle.

You can have the passionate, playful relationship you want.

Featured in:


I’m Dr. Roz

There’s a life you want to build.  Peace that needs to be restored.  Joy you’re yearning to wake up next to. Life that makes you feel more connected to God.

Don’t settle another day. Yes, you can have that playful relationship you want, prevent divorce, and keep your family together. 

If you’ve had to deal with the loss of a relationship and want to just “get over it” but you can’t, let’s get clarity, get healing, and dump all that baggage.  Before you make another coffee-date, get yourself ready for a whole, healthy God-centered relationship.  

I help individuals and couples to build a better relationship. First with yourself.

At the end of the day, the types of relationships you’re in say a lot about you. For better or worse, you have to be happy with the relationship with yourself.  Then you can attract and keep healthy, happy relationships with everybody else.  I provide individual and couples counseling in Laurel,Mississippi and online to residents of Mississippi and Texas.

what to expect?

1. Schedule a Phone Consultation

Fifteen minutes can save you tons of money on car insurance AND give you a chance to explore your concerns with no obligation to move forward. I’ll answer as many questions as possible. 

2. Complete an Assessment

If we were fixing a broken leg, you’d need the x-ray first.  But we’re mending the heart and brain, so you still need a x-ray. It’s the only way to determine how to help. So no, we can’t skip it and just dive into “fixing your life” (pun intended). 

3. Turn Lemons into Lemonade

Counseling is where victims become survivors and anger finds peace. Where the pain of the past meets the promise of a hopeful future. Your greatest purpose. And confusion becomes clarity. Welcome the process and meet a transformed you.
