I live in Texas and possess an unobstructed Texas professional counseling (LPC) license. I obtained a Master’s degree in Counseling and an undergraduate degree in psychology. I have worked for a mental health facility for six years and obtained experience in crisis, psycho-social rehabilitation, received training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and received a certification of training in Cognitive Processing Therapy for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I have worked with people of various ages and development. I have extensive use of the DSM IV and V.
I have experience in working with those who have or have had substance abuse problems, and I have worked in two residential, judicial dual diagnosis centers. Dual diagnosis means these individuals not only have a substance abuse problem, but they have a diagnosable mental illness.
There is continuous research and study, and I continue to search for arenas to expand and update my experience and knowledge in counseling techniques and in mental health. I have an extreme passion to see improvement, empowerment, support and progress not only in my clients but also in myself. I cannot help my client if I do not have those qualities myself.
I am a believer in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit and do not fear using Biblical principles in my counseling practice when requested.
My main clinical approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), but I also adopt other techniques from other approaches such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Gestalt, Person-Centered (Rogerian), and Integrative/Holistic. I am a firm believer that every person is composed of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual facets, and each facet has an effect on the other aspects of the person.
I have counseled individuals who have received such diagnoses as schizophrenia, bipolar, major depressive disorder, borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, anxiety adjustment disorder to name a few. Though I do not specialize in this field, I have gained experience in working with strained relationships and marriages and family conflicts. Fortunately, part of my required studies in college were in family dynamics and in relationships. What I have learned in class came in very handy in dealing with dual diagnosis.
My counseling style is down-to-earth, warm, and nonthreatening. However, I will set boundaries, and I can be firm regarding those boundaries. I will correct anything that enhances negativity or the stigma that seems to accompany mental illness. I also believe in treating my clients the way I want to be treated. It is my belief that everyone has the right to a more content and rewarding life. If you are brave enough to face the issues that have kept you from these goals, then I am proud that you have chosen me to stand by your side to help you reach your goals. I look forward to working with you!

Kathryn Robinson is a true blessing. She is helping me to heal from the past so that I can move foward in my life with freedom through Christ. I highly recommend her if you are seeking a caring knowledgeable Christian counselor.

Very insightful and listens good. She really helped me with my issues.
Kathryn has helped to show me what tools that I have at my disposal to overcome the current issues that I’m facing, in addition to how to attain the tools for future conflicts to help me better myself, for myself. I have realized with Kathryn’s help that I can become a better man for my daughters by utilizing those tools that I have learned.
Kathryn is the best!
Kathryn has been incredibly professional, compassionate and communicative. I’ve found my sessions with her very helpful
Best. Counselor. Ever. ❤
Kathryn is a perfect fit for me. Shes so warm and caring. She totally speaks my language and encourages me even when we can't meet.
Mrs. Robinson is phenomenal! She understands my primary concerns and reasons for entering therapy and when I derail myself from that she is always upfront and non judgmental in bring me back to my path!
She is awesome. She listens and helps with current emotions. I enjoy her prayers and guidance through a Christian view.
It was a pleasure being treated by her. Very nice
This is my second time ever getting any type of counseling and I must say Kathryn Robinson has really helped me through so much and we’ve only just begun. I still have a long way to go but I’m very hopeful!
Kathryn has been a wonderful asset to my mental health. She's not afraid to touch tough subjects, and is a blessing to speak with.
Has a positive attitude helps you think more logical Kind and caring person would definitely recommend
I have just began counseling w Kathryn, for one session she was very inviting and caring. I look forward to continue working w her.
I have only had a couple of sessions with Kathryn and am looking forward to working with her more. She said to me, "Life is the challenge of change, the choice about the change, the consequence of the choice and then the contribution to self first and then to others." I found this very inspiring! Thank you Kathryn.
I am very satisfied so far with my counseling sessions and communication with Katherine.
I don't feel that Kathryn judges me and she really takes the time to listen and respond. I appreciate her methods in explaining to full detail to where I understand as well as being patient with me. She shares her knowledge and guidance and is not rude and condescending such as other previous counselors I have had in the past that made me feel that I could not trust them and they did not share the interest that Kathryn has shown me. This is what a true and helpful, guiding intentional counselor should be like.
Kathryn has been a huge help to me over the last 3 weeks in my therapy dealing with my breakup and anxiety issues. She really listens and I would definitely recommend he’d to anyone that’s struggling with life in general.
Everything is going well
I’ve learned to much in these last few sessions than I have in months of previous counseling. Absolutely love the feedback and advice Kathryn gives me. She is honest and helpful.
Kathryn has been a God send!
I am so grateful for this self-help tool. My whole family has benefited.
I have been talking with Kathryn for 5 months now. She literally has pulled me out of my depression and anxiety ridden self. I could not have done it without her although she will tell you that you did it yourself. She is calm and very reliable. I can always count on her to answer me back within a day if not sooner. Now when we talk it’s more like talking with a friend. Thankfully my anxiety is dang near gone and no longer depressed. I was so depressed i was in bed 90 percent of the day. I’m so thankful for her and better help. Thank you so much! You hold a special place in my heart always.
Thank you for constantly supporting me.
She is very knowledgeable regarding trauma. She has a holistic approach to counseling. If a person is willing to do the work, she is in the trenches right with you. Strongly recommend Ms. Kathryn.
She is so patient and is able to explain what you are actually feeling when you can’t find the right words. I’ve learned so much about myself I didn’t know and also new ways to cope. She wants you to be able to be your own counselor and I get better at it each day.
I think this is an amazing outlet for someone needing help with day to day life, just to be able to talk to someone and work through your emotions are life changing. Try it.
Kathy takes the time to listen and give honest, yet supportive feedback. She’s been really helpful so far!
I really appreciated Kathryn's time and effort. She got to the heart of my issues fairly quickly and I feel these sessions really helped.
Kathryn is a counselor that I immediately felt comfortable with and when I described my "issues" she understood what I meant and what my goals were. She is a godsend in a critical, challenging time in my life and I am very pleased to be working with her.
Kathryn Robinson is fantastic! She has been a great blessing in my life. Highly recommend!
Kathryn Robinson is a wonderful person, I could not have picked a better counselor for what I have been going through. She is really supportive, respectful, wise, mature, experienced, humorous, strong, keen, observant, and humble. I have learned a LOT about myself and about people, life, and relationships, and I'm still learning! I went from victim to victor. I have the utmost confidence in Kathryn! I gladly consider her, not just only as my counselor, but as one of my close friends.
She’s always patient and accommodating my hectic schedule. She has a calming spirit and always has wisdom and techniques to help.
My counselor, by helping me answer my concerns, is giving me suggestions I had not considered.
An individual of intelligence and discernment who is willing to step past the norm in order to best help and support her clients.
