The alliance we build as client and therapist is a necessary and very important part of the therapeutic process. I carefully assess each individuals or couples strengths, history of relationships, sense of self, developmental status, learning styles, symptoms and readiness to change. I believe that what you find helpful to talk about in each session is most important. You and I will develop a treatment plan based upon these factors, your experience, my professional experience, research findings and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. I have a general practice and also have areas of specialty.

Eastside Insight is the psychotherapy practice of Rose Gillis. Eastside's name, logo, and motto reflect the belief that the elements needed for overcoming an issue are already within. Pulling this intelligence into consciousness is a form of learning called insight. When insight becomes blocked then a relationship with a confidant, who doesn’t feel burdened by your troubles, can help in the process of bringing your truth forward into awareness. It is important then to find a therapist who you connect with, is objective, and supports your needs. The website eastsideinsight.com was created for you, with this pursuit in mind.

I work with guys in hi-tech, mostly software engineers and managers, who struggle with some sort of anxiety &/or depression, often brought on by things like workplace stress, relationship problems, or big life transitions (like having a baby). My typical client leads an engaged life of achievement and focus, and he usually feels on top of things. But then life has come along and hit him with something his well-developed intellect can't quite handle. The result is that he feels stalled and filled with self-doubt - something he is unaccustomed to and deeply uncomfortable with.

You are in a committed relationship but feeling so LONELY and FRUSTRATED. You try to communicate your needs to your partner, but each time the two of you end up in a disagreement, leaving you feeling worse than before. You feel you are out of options for how to have these discussions differently. You are unsure how the two of you can reconnect and get your needs met. You yearn for your partner to respond to your needs in a way that feels loving and accepting instead of reactive. You would love to rekindle the love you once felt in your relationship and move from being ROOMMATES back to LOVING PARTNERS.
