Robert Floren, MA, LAMFT - Rogers & Buffalo

Robert has a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and is a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. He offers individual, family, and couples counseling at both the Rogers and Buffalo locations.      

 

Robert enjoys spending time outdoors and he finds great healing power in nature.  This is especially true when trying to find calm in the chaotic everyday lives we find ourselves in.  The art of sitting with our experience, being curious, and slowing the process down is a great way for healing and growth to take place.  Robert wants to hear about your experiences and how you relate to others in order to be of the most help with the relationships in your life.

The use of Narrative Therapy helps to unpack the meaning that each of us creates from our experiences.  He likes to work from this perspective because it allows space to understand the story you bring to therapy while also providing the support to make a change and feel empowered.  The meaning we create from struggles in our lives can be powerful and not always in helpful ways.  In bringing attention to your resiliency in the face of the struggles, the meaning, and ultimately your life story can be transformed.  

Robert has worked in day treatment and also provided skills work with children, adolescents, and adults with various degrees of severe and persistent mental illness.  These experiences have helped to instill a belief in the potential of each individual and collaborative approach in their growth process. Robert is accepting individuals, families, and couples on Mondays and Tuesdays at the Rogers location and Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Buffalo location. To schedule an appointment, please call the main line directly.
