Dustin Roberson, LPC
There has been one common thread that has connected all clients I have seen no matter race, religion, gender, or socio-economic status. That thread is feeling lack of control over either the world around them or themselves. This ends up creating anxiety, depression, anger, loneliness, and many other physical, emotional, and spiritual conflicts. It is only when we truly internalize the idea that accepting the things we cannot change and have the courage to change the things we can are we able to truly be free and accept ourselves. The trick is knowing the difference of what we can and cannot change. This can be especially difficult when we have experienced some type of trauma in our lives.
My approach is to build a strong therapeutic relationship with you, identify whatever problem you might be facing, and develop ways of managing that problem that is unique to you. With mental health, there is no one size fits all. There is no magic pill or technique that works for everyone. My purpose is not to change who you are, but to guide you through the process of you being the best you possible. I can’t do this without you. This is a collaborative journey that I am extremely excited, honored, and privileged to traverse with you. If there is nowhere else you feel safe, rest assured you will be safe during our visits. I have worked with people of all walks of life. My specific training is in trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), an evidenced based approach to PTSD. However, I have treated individuals struggling with depression, mania, anxiety, trauma, and psychosis. Come see me. Together, we will stop re-reading the old chapters in your life and you will begin to write a new one.
