After working as a college psychologist for a year, Dr. Vincent Rose has returned to Gloucester to resume his private practice of clinical psychology in the county and in Kilmarnock.

Rose first opened a psychology practice in Gloucester in 1991 and later taught at Christopher Newport University. He also became an auxiliary officer with the Gloucester Sheriff’s Office in 1995 and then joined the office full-time for eight years, serving first with its domestic violence intervention program and later as a supervisor of administrative services.

While he pursued other interests, Rose continued to offer his psychological services locally. He also conducted pre-employment evaluations for law enforcement, provided post-critical incident counseling for first responders, and was a volunteer with Gloucester Fire and Rescue.

Rose accepted the position of campus psychologist at Hampden-Sydney College in March of last year. He recently departed the college and said he is happy to be back full-time in the county he has called home for 23 years.

In his resumed private practice, Rose said he offers psychological services for individuals of all ages from adolescents through geriatrics. He said he treats most any psychological problem, including depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, eating disorders and substance abuse. He also still provides pre-employment evaluations and post-crisis counseling.
