ME/CFS and related chronic complex diseases

Deborah Rose, MD

Dr. Rose is a psychiatrist in private practice in Palo Alto, California. She has over 40 years of experience in treating posttraumatic stress disorder, both acute PTSD and complex PTSD. She has developed and published a model for psychodynamic psychotherapy of PTSD and has published articles and book chapters on these subjects. She has taught extensively for professionals and for the lay public and has consulted to the National Centers for PTSD.

Dr. Rose’s interest in serving on our board stems from both her personal experience of having fibromyalgia and then ME/CFS, and also from having patients in her practice with these illnesses. She is very excited about the pending revolutionary research and about current interventions that have brought her and her patients notable relief.
