Dennis Roberts PsyD, CPsychol, AFBPsS

I’m an American clinical psychologist based in Paris, where I help people in the English-speaking community improve their mental health. I am passionate about empowering my patients to achieve real change – to lead happier, more balanced lives.

 

I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Seattle, am licensed as a psychologist in five states in the US and am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychology Society. I’ve worked in a number of mental health settings, including mental health clinics, hospitals and private practice. I was an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Health Sciences at DePaul University in Chicago.

I see people with a wide range of problems, including depression, anxiety, stress and OCD. Whatever the issue, I aim to form a warm relationship of trust with my patients, bring clarity to their problems and share healthy coping skills that genuinely work. I am committed to evidence-based practice, which means that I only use methods that have been validated by researchers as being effective. This is my way of ensuring I can give people the best support available.

I am trained in several well-researched psychological therapies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). While each of these treatments is powerful on its own, I take an integrative approach. Every person is unique, and therapy works best when it is tailored to the needs of the individual.

My areas of special interest include:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety and OCD

  • Stress

  • Self-esteem issues

  • Perfectionism

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Procrastination

  • Insomnia

  • Medical Fears

  • Chronic Pain

Regardless of what the problem is, I aim to create a safe place of compassion and non-judgement, where people can share their problems and be heard. I also believe in getting to know each person deeply, as an important way of gaining insight into how best to help them.

 

I take enormous joy in seeing the people I work with gain a better quality of life, emotional stability and improved daily functioning. I look forward to meeting you and exploring this process together.
