About Nat Roman

As an Individual, Couple & Family Therapist I am passionate about supporting clients in creating meaningful and sustainable changes in their lives and relationships. The decision to seek therapy and the process of finding the right therapist can be challenging. Without the right fit it can be difficult to open up about your challenges and get the support that you need. I am deeply committed to creating a safe, warm, caring, and respectful therapeutic environment where you can trust that you will be heard, understood, and offered appropriate and effective support.

No specific technique or model of therapy will be effective for all clients. Because each client is unique, I have come to embrace an integrative approach to therapy that draws together effective practices from multiple therapy models; tailored to the needs of each client.

Through a collaborative consultation process we will work together to establish goals, to determine the most effective therapeutic approach for you and your circumstances, and ensure that you are getting the support that you need. I am here to help. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.

So wonderful to have a boyfriend who is able to understand and forgive you. What do you think that he sees in you that allows him to do that? Does he see someone who like other humans makes mistakes?

That sounds really heartbreaking. It is tough falling in love and not being able to dive fully because of complications on the other side. It sounds to me that you are doing exactly what you need to be doing by taking "care of myself" while the rest sorts itself out. While I admire your desire and... more

I think that every person who has been single for any extended period of time has felt the same worries - myself included. Since relationships are so important to us we fear not having them and being single. It is similar to fearing that we won't ever get a good job when we have been out of work for... more

It sounds like you have mixed feelings and motivations - which is understandable. On the one hand you want to get over him, on the other you are still holding out hope for something more.

What an important question. I'm hearing your hopelessness and fear about the damage of your substance use and it sounds like you have reason for concern.
