More about Laurie Roberts

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. I hope I can be helpful to you, and I look forward to meeting you!

My therapy style is derived from utilizing an eclectic approach, with Reality Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy as its foundation.  This means that our therapy sessions will tend to have themes such as responsibility, setting goals, increasing self-awareness, communication and empathy, making beneficial changes in small, easy steps, and finding effective techniques and solutions.

These recurrent themes contribute to the client’s experience in therapy because they help the client to change their mindset and perspectives about their current situation, as well as the people involved in it.  This is often a catalyst for changing old, negative patterns into more positive ones.
