Message to clients

My name is O. Lamonte Roberson and you can call me “O”.

First let me start by saying I too have been in therapy before. It can be both great and grueling. So, before I go on I want to say, It’s going to be okay. You’re going to find what you need and overcome the challenges you’re facing.

I am a licensed social worker and I specialize in assisting individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, divorce, life transitions and romantic partnerships.

I could go on about the countless ways I’m trained and equipped to be your therapist and my years of experience but, I’m guessing more than anything you just need to know how I’m going to help.

I do this in many ways. One of which is by helping clients conquer personal proclivities and overcome childhood traumas while acknowledging the unfairness of life and developing a strategy for recovery and growth.

I serve as a beacon of hope while unwrapping life’s difficulties and together we process predicaments and forge ahead to a brighter future.
