For this first month of 2019, we introduce a new member of the Overture team. Everyone be sure to give a warm welcome to Blake Roberts!
Q: Where are you from? What area of Colorado are you in now?
A: I consider my home state New Hampshire but spent much of my childhood in Europe (between Germany and Italy) due to my Dad’s chosen profession (in the military). Moved out to CO in 1998 to ski for 3 months; haven’t returned back east to live since then. Am currently residing in Firestone.
Q: What is your color, based on the Colors training?
A: My primary color is Orange.
Q: Tell us about yourself in a nutshell.
A: I will start off by saying I am the youngest of 3 children and have the personality to attest to that. I am free spirited, enjoy working with others to find common ground on a given subject, ambitious and, as much as it pains me to admit, I can be a tad immature at times. Other words to describe me would be humorous, remarkably laid back and a tad on the competitive side.
I was married in 2015 to Lindsay and have an amazing 2-year-old son (with whom I share a birthday with which is cool). Both my older brother and sister I consider my closest friends; each live out of state, but I make a point of visiting them regularly. I also have two neurotic dogs which do a wicked awesome job of keeping me faithful to my daily walks.
Q: What is your role at Overture and how would you describe what you do?
A: I was hired to help develop a generalized mental health program in which we will begin providing individual, couples, family and group counseling to our surrounding community using a progressive, integrated model of care.
Q: When not at work, how do you like to spend your time?
A: Things I enjoy when I am not a therapist are: golf, attempting to catch fish, losing in fantasy football, traveling to visit family, happy hour, brewing my own beer and trying to entertain my 2 year old.
Q: If you were a superhero, what would your powers be?
Q: Name one thing on your bucket list.
A: To go visit the Northern Lights
Q: If you were trapped on a deserted island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
A: Boring. . . A lighter. . . Got to have fire.
