Roberta Perno

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Greetings! My name is Roberta Perno and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I have been practicing for 15 years in the healing field of mental health. I have extensive experience working with parents, couples, and individuals exploring a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationships, sexuality, self worth, grief, adjustment, career, and several others issues that many face in their lives. We live in a world today that can be very fast paced which can make it more challenging to engage in self-care and awareness in order to address the very needs that affect over all well-being. It is my great pleasure to be able to assist you in any way possible by exploring concerns, developing a plan of action, and providing the hope and healing necessary to thrive. What an opportunity it is to go on this journey with you and I am hopeful this will be a beneficial and interactive experience for you!

For the past 7 years, I have had the distinct blessing of working for a non-for-profit Christian organization. In my current position, I consult with individuals from all over the country and even internationally on several different issues and topics of concern. My relationship with Christ is the foundation of my heart and the Holy Spirit is my guide in all that I do personally and professionally. The wisdom He imparts is what makes my job more rewarding and it is a rather amazing to witness how He can touch another through the counsel I provide. When appropriate, I will pray with clients, share Scripture, and bring to life the very personal nature of how God relates to us through compassion and love no matter what we are struggling with or going through. In my counsel, I incorporate practical counseling tips, skills, and theoretical orientations with the powerful healing that God can offer. He walks with us through the valleys and rejoices with us from the mountain tops. He is our internal Counselor and I consider my work a conduit for His love, light, and guidance in the lives of the individuals that I am so blessed to counsel.

Roberta is an extremely kind and caring counselor who invests in the people she works with. I have had many different counselors throughout my life and Roberta’s thoughtfulness and caring approach has made me feel the most cared for- like she’s know me forever and wants the best for me. A very warm person while also being very knowledgeable. You will leave each session feeling like you just spoke to family but armed with tools to help you the rest of your week!

So far I feel this is a God-led match. I had indicated in the survey that I would be comfortable with the counselor praying, so I feel encouraged by Roberta’s opening prayers and I appreciate her incorporating Biblical ideas into her advice. I also really like being able to message with her between sessions.

After only a few face to face sessions and many texts/messages, I feel confident that with Roberta's knowledge and expertise, she will be able to give me the guidance and support I am needing. After only three weeks, I have referred a friend from my church to Faithful Counseling. That is how confident I am in the "return" I will receive from Roberta.
