Episode Description

In this episode, we meet Rosalind Pistilli. She shares a very transparent, impactful, and moving account of her story and how she’s overcome past childhood traumas. At the age of five, Rosalind was placed into the foster care system when her parents went to prison after being convicted of heinous sexual offenses. Rosalind navigated this new reality in foster care, followed by adoption with perseverance, strong mindedness, and the intent that she will leave that life behind and the world would become her oyster one day. Today, Rosalind is a mother, wife, qualified and experienced professional, and fully equipped to bring hope, therapy, and transitioning support to the many patients she helps.
