W. Lou Roberts, CADC-I, CTP
Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
It is breathtaking how resilient we all are. I have lost count of the phoenixes I witnessed rising from the ashes. I specialize in assisting you toward your goals with an integrated focus on body, mind, and spirit. I enjoy working with adults and couples and facilitating group therapy and group skills training. I spend time with friends and family anywhere along the Oregon Coast, writing, singing, and loving being with animals.
My approach is a conscientious balance of kindness and honesty. Have you had the experience of feeling safe, heard, understood, and encouraged? I feel honored to support people through difficult times by being a great listener and creating safety with respect, empathy, & unconditional positive regard.
