Mr. Roberts works with families, couples, individuals, groups and children/adolescents. He has a particular passion for and commitment to working with adolescents dealing with emotional and behavioral regulation difficulties, low self-esteem and life transition issues. In addition, he works with men and their issues, including emerging adult males dealing with the stresses of life transitions. At The Family Institute at Northwestern University, Mr. Roberts co-leads the Men's Group and is involved with groups for pre-adolescent and adolescent boys. In all of these contexts, his understanding and sensitivity to multiculturalism and its impact on the therapeutic process is a prominent part of his work. This, in part, stems from his four 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 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. He is a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT).
