About me

Life gets to us sometimes. Sometimes we need help. I'll be your coach, support, and cheerleader through this tough time in your life, and can provide you with the good constructive feedback that you need. If you're motivated to make positive change in your life, I might be able to help you. I find that seeking to answer the common question of "why am I doing this?" is very helpful and freeing for people, and reminds them that they can in fact make changes to get their lives back on track.

My approach is based on being direct and honest. Your time and money are valuable. I don't want to waste either of those, and wish to get you pointed in a positive direction. I'll work to help you get out of your own way, so that you can give life both barrels. My academic background is Motivational Psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Though those are my theoretical approaches, I will draw on any treatment necessary to help you achieve your goals. There is no "one size fits all approach" as people are all very different from one another. I do my best to tailor your treatment to you, whether we're dealing with depression, stress, anxiety, or coaching.

I have Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Psychology, having graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University in 2009 with a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology. I have been in practice for over 10 years, and have worked in mental health since 2006. I've had a wide variety of work experiences, such as working in an Inpatient mental health unit(Psych Hospital), drug rehab clinics, eating disorder clinics, and clinical work at a Private Psychiatric Practice. I also draw on my various life experiences and previous work experience prior to mental health to assist my patients.

If you choose to work with me, we just might be able to move forward and get the change you've been looking for. I look forward to working with you!

I have found David Robbins to be very helpful. I feel he is on my side while directing me to better insights and behaviours. He is always encouraging, never belittling, and he checks in on me if I have not had contact for a few days. I feel safe with him and that is helping me through a difficult situation. It feels like he has got my back.

David is really easy to talk to. He is tuned in and understands my problems. He was also very good at giving me ideas and tools to assist in how I process my problems.
