Mr. Roberts is a licensed family therapist, clinical lecturer and supervisor at The Family Institute, Bette D. Harris Family and Child Clinic at Northwestern University. Mr. Roberts works with families, couples, individuals, children/adolescents, as well as conducting group therapy. He has a particular passion for and commitment to working with adolescent’s issues and men’s issues, including emerging adult males dealing with the stresses of life transitions. In all these modalities, his understanding and sensitivity to a culturally responsive practice and its impact on the therapeutic process is a prominent part of his work. This, in part, stems from his years of personal travel across four continents and into more than twenty countries throughout North America, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, India and West Africa.
Mr. Roberts has worked clinically with diverse individuals and various combinations of cross-cultural couples and international families — from USA, Poland, Mexico, Colombia, Israel, Ecuador, Jamaica, Venezuela, Nigeria, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Greece, India, Spain, Philippines, Zimbabwe, France, Suriname and Pakistan, to name a few.
