Solutions-Focused Therapy

Have you ever felt stuck and unable to find a resolution? Perhaps your challenge is with a teammate, family member, or partner. It may even be an issue you have with your past that is disrupting your present and putting your future in jeopardy.

When people have a problem they want to overcome, they need support. By making use of interventions and techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Jungian Psychology, Roberta helps people facing a variety of challenges to experience lasting and real change in their lives and relationships. Roberta’s expertise in and use of Emotionally Focused Therapy empowers her clients to directly address the habits, behaviors, and thought patterns that may hold them back from living their most fulfilled lives. By helping clients build the skills they need to change both their thinking and their behavior, Roberta helps them reclaim control over negative patterns and replace them with healthier ones.

Because this type of therapy focuses on fundamentally improving an individual’s thought patterns and behaviors, its benefits often last after therapy has ended.

Integrated Systems Theory

Human relationships are complicated. Systems Theory acknowledges the truth that we are all interconnected, and that if one person in a group (family, team, partnership) is struggling, there are implications for everyone. Roberta’s use of Systems Theory allows her clients to approach their challenges from an empathetic and well-rounded position in order to improve interpersonal relationships and build better communication skills. She creates a safe environment for individuals, families, and couples to discuss and address the health of interconnected relationships and seek ways that they can function better.

Through this approach, Roberta gives her clients the tools to begin to unravel the causes of both inner and outer conflict. When guided with purpose and expertise, individuals begin to see the ripple effects of their personal inner growth and healing as they improve their relationships with friends, family, and colleagues.

Emotional Intelligence Perspective

As a certified Emotional Intelligence (EQ) coach, Roberta offers an added layer of perspective and insight to help her clients address their challenges. Every Conscious Choices client has the option to begin their therapy journey with an EQ Assessment to help pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses in different emotional intelligence skills, such as empathy, assertiveness, self-actualization, problem solving, and more. This assessment not only helps clients gain a better understanding of their own challenges, it also provides Roberta with the insight to create a personalized therapy plan that helps clients reach their goals more quickly and effectively.

By layering in the enlightenment of emotional intelligence with her expertise in Emotionally Focused Therapy and use of Systems Theory, Roberta helps clients begin to develop specific, meaningful skills and techniques that lead to healthier habits, a more positive relationship with themselves, and greater understanding and satisfaction from interactions with others.
