Sally Ann Roberts, LCSW – Director of Counseling Services
Sally Ann Roberts received her MSW from Washington University in St. Louis and is experienced in hypnotherapy, energy work, psycho-synthesis, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapies.

In fact, obstacles to what is expected (if viewed in the correct light) can often be the most valuable lesson one can receive in learning how to be true to oneself.
