Psychotherapist

Cheaven Roberts, LPC

Seeking psychotherapy is a meaningful decision to make. It means that you are taking a step towards reclaiming your joy, health, and wellbeing. Therapy offers the potential for real and lasting change. I am here to offer guidance and insight along your journey inward. Virtual & in-person therapy available.

Therapeutic Services and Approach

Individual

I am a relational therapist. This means that I believe that we are all wired for connection and it is through safe relationships that emotional healing can occur. By cultivating authentic connection, in a safe and confidential space we are able to explore the unattended or bottled-up parts of you that may be laced with shame, confusion and self-judgment.

My method of therapy is one of guided self-discovery and understanding through experimental and mindfulness-based approaches. This method allows for the unique possibility of mind-body integration that leads to lasting healing and continual growth. My work is heavily influenced by interpersonal neurobiology, somatic psychotherapy, mindfulness, and attachment theory.

LGBTQ+

I have experience and familiarity with the unique challenges that members of the LGBTQ+ community often face. Despite the growing appearance of cultural acceptance of diverse sexual, romantic and gender identifications, systemic discrimination and oppression persist and LGBTQ+ individuals continue to be at a much higher risk of suicidal ideation and self-harm.

Whether you are seeking therapy for issues associated with your sexual, romantic, or gender identity or for concerns related to your mental health and wellbeing, I offer a therapeutic environment that is not dictated by heteronomativity.

Mindfulness Training

Meditation, yoga, and breathing exercises are all approaches and insights used in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which combines the already-effective insights and approaches of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). People are encouraged to develop a greater sense of awareness as their thoughts and emotions occur, so they don’t feel controlled by them. These strategies help people avoid negative emotions and actions that result from automatic thoughts. In addition to treating recurrent depression and relapse into depression, mindfulness training has been proven effective for treating mood disorders, anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, and chronic pain, as well as other mood disorders.

Group Yoga Therapy

Research increasingly suggests that yoga is not only physically beneficial but it also helps to rebuild healthy neuropathways in our brain that have been affected by trauma.

I offer a 1 on 1 yoga practice where we can begin exploring how belief systems and traumas are held in the body, below the level of conscious awareness, through dialog and supported postures.

Theoretical Orientation

Mindfulness-based Psychotherapy

Mindfulness-based interventions are therapeutic approaches grounded in focusing attention on the present moment with a non-judgmental attitude. Increasing our capacity for mindfulness helps us to become better able to separate ourselves from negative thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations before they become too overwhelming, helping to further psychological insight and emotional healing, over time.

Somatic Psychotherapy

Somatic psychotherapy adds a significant dimension to verbal psychotherapy by including bodily experience as correlative, causative and caused by psychological experience. It is grounded in the belief that not only are thought, emotion and bodily experience inextricably linked, but also that change can be brought about in one domain of experience by mindfully accessing another.

Interpersonal Neurobiology

Interpersonal neurobiology holds that we are ultimately who we are because of our relationships. Further, because the mind is defined as a relational process that regulates energy flow, our brains are constantly rewiring themselves. All relationships change the brain, particularly the most intimate ones. An attuned, empathetic, and positive therapeutic relationship can therefore yield healing for those who have suffered from trauma.

About Me

Hello, below you will find more about my education, and training, however I also want you to know more about who I am.

I did not always know that I wanted to be a therapist however I have always known that I am deeply touched by and nourished by deep, meaningful relationships and naturally attune to the emotional experiences in myself and in others. My heart has continually pulled me in the direction of social services such as volunteering and working for local nonprofit organizations, assisting children with developmental disabilities, and running support groups.

It was once I faced my own feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, and crippling doubt that I began my journey to health and joy which also launched me on the path to becoming a psychotherapist. I began seeing a therapist, I read and listened to everything by Tara Brach, and then went on my first meditation retreat. These acts of self-care and kindness changed my whole life and is why I am here now offering a space for your healing.
