Whether you are dealing with betrayal, childhood, or sexual trauma, sexual addiction , trauma from war, or dealing with bipolar, depression, anxiety, PTSD, dissociation, addictions, adoption, lack of self-confidence, or marital issues.
Hi! My name is Helen Roberts and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Iowa. I’ve been counseling children, teens, adults, couples, and families for over 20 years - But in my experience, that’s not really what you want to know. What you really want to know is can I help you? And is there hope for things to change for you? As a matter of fact, there is and I hope you’ll give me an opportunity to take that journey towards healing and empowerment with you. We can change the direction of your life right now and give you hope and power again!

I have traveled extensively throughout the US facilitating workshops and speaking on topics including trauma, work-life balance, faith, relationships, and sexual addiction .
I specialize in working with clients seeking to better understand themselves and foster deeper connections in their relationships. Many of my clients find themselves excelling at many areas of their life while still feeling alone, discontent, and disconnected. This can lead to destructive behaviors as well as depression, anxiety, and addiction. Through a holistic approach, we will get to the heart of the matter and begin to identify and build a life that has more happiness, connection, and contentment. Sessions are a curated experience and conducted with the utmost discretion and regard for confidentiality.

Currently accepting new clients! Something feels off. Sometimes it’s obvious what is affecting you, but often you’re less certain. Perhaps you have some ideas about what’s wrong, but you aren’t sure how to feel better. Maybe you are experiencing relationship issues, or just feel like you are alone even when you know you have people who care about you. It may even be possible that you are uncertain there is anything wrong at all because you’ve always felt this way - but is it really this hard for everyone? There are many people just like you that could be living happier and healthier lives - they just don’t know how to get there.

Sexual Addiction Therapists
Sexual addictions usually are revealed in stages: Preoccupation: continual fantasies about sexual prospects or situations, which can trigger episodes of sexual "acting-out": Ritualization: a preferred sexual activity or situation is often stereotyped and repetitive; Sexual Compulsion: continual engagement in sexual activity despite negative consequences and desire to stop; Despair: guilt or shame over inability to control behaviour or feel remorse; and, Other behavioural problems, particularly chemical dependency and eating disorders.

Sex addiction or love addiction in marriage is common and inevitably leads to betrayal and hurt. Overcoming and recovery from sexual addiction starts with recognizing that you are out of control.
