Roberto uses a variety of therapeutic interventions that focus on a Strength Based Perspective. Meaning, that instead of focusing on clients’ problems and deficits, the strengths perspective centers on clients’ abilities, talents, and resources. Some of these approaches include, but are not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, and both music and art therapy. Roberto believes therapy should provide a supportive and safe environment where one is able to learn methods to reduce symptoms that are presently impacting one’s own self. Roberto will focus on exploring the issues that are important to you and determine goals you want to achieve. Roberto’s initial focus in therapy is to develop trust, respect, and a personal connection so that you feel safe and understood.
