Jay Roberson is an experienced counselor who works predominately with couples, men, and adolescent boys. He has practiced since 2008 after earning his Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Counseling at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. He has advanced training in marital therapy from Drs. John and Julia Gottman. After leaving RTS, he served children, adolescents, and their families in Community Mental Health in Yazoo City, MS.
Jay has since counseled in Jackson in Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs in both clinic and psychiatric hospital settings. In the hospital setting, Jay advanced into the role of Outpatient Services Director, aiding the growth and healing of patients with mental illness. In 2014, he began counseling patients in private settings and became a Board Qualified Supervisor (LPC-S) for Licensed Professional Counselors.
The majority of Jay’s practice focuses in three major areas: relationship growth, life transitions, and grief and loss issues. He works with men who feel worthless, hopeless, and angry about their lives. He also works to mend the marriages that can be disrupted due to these experiences. Additionally, Jay counsels adolescent boys having trouble emotionally handling their parents’ divorce, life changes, and social stressors – including bullying. These areas are explored by integrating mental health therapy and Christian-centered Biblical counseling for all seeking to change and heal.
His experience and education have prepared him to work with a number of issues, including:
