Why Yehuda Roberts, LCSW chose to be in the helping profession
Choosing to be in the helping profession was not a deliberate choice for me, but rather a calling that I couldn't ignore. Looking back, I realize that I was searching for answers to my own experiences, and the desire to help others became a natural extension of that search. I've always been fascinated by the complexities of human behavior and the intricacies of relationships.
For me, the helping profession is more than just a job - it's a way of life. It requires a deep sense of empathy and a willingness to connect with people on a profound level. While the work can be challenging, the rewards are immeasurable. The knowledge that I am making a positive impact in someone's life is what motivates me every day.
The decision to be in the helping profession may not have been a conscious one, but it's a path that I'm grateful to have taken. I'm honored to be able to use my skills and knowledge to make a difference in the lives of others, and I look forward to continuing this work for many years to come.
Yehuda Roberts, LCSW's approach
As a therapist, my approach is heavily influenced by psychoanalytic thinking. While I recognize the benefits of cognitive behavioral models, I find them to be somewhat limited in their scope when used alone.
I work with both children and adults, but my passion lies in helping children and adolescents navigate the challenges of growing up. I firmly believe that by helping children understand themselves better, we can reduce the acting-out behaviors that often accompany their struggles.
In my work with children, I strive to create a safe and supportive environment where they feel comfortable exploring their thoughts and emotions. I believe that by fostering a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships, children can develop a stronger sense of resilience and self-confidence.
My approach is rooted in the belief that everyone has the capacity for growth and change. By working collaboratively with my clients and providing a supportive and non-judgmental space, I aim to help them overcome the obstacles that are holding them back from living their best lives.
What you can expect from sessions with Yehuda Roberts, LCSW
In our sessions, my primary goal is to provide a space where you feel heard, understood, and validated. I believe that there is no greater gift than the feeling of being truly heard and seen.
For children, I use a variety of playful and symbolic interactions to help them feel more comfortable and engaged in the therapy process. I believe that therapy for children should be fun, engaging, and age-appropriate, while still addressing the issues they are struggling with.
In addition to working with children, I recognize the vital role that parents play in their child's treatment. I often meet with parents regularly, sometimes together with their child, to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that progress is being made.
Overall, you can expect a warm, empathetic, and collaborative approach to therapy. Together, we will work to identify your goals and develop a plan for achieving them. Whether you are seeking help for yourself or your child, I am committed to providing a safe and supportive space for growth and healing.
Yehuda Roberts, LCSW's experience working with the Jewish community
Through my work, I have had the privilege of working with a number of children in the Yeshiva Katana of Waterbury, as well as several other frum clients in New Haven. While I don't exclusively work within the Jewish community, I do feel a special connection and familiarity with this population.
Having grown up in a Jewish community myself, I have a deep understanding of the unique challenges and experiences that can arise in this context. I am committed to providing culturally sensitive and responsive care to all of my clients, and I take great care to tailor my approach to the specific needs of each individual.
My experience working with the Jewish community has been incredibly rewarding, and I feel honored to be able to support individuals and families in this context.
