About Me

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.

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.

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.

Written by V.I. on Aug 21, 2020 after therapy with Kathryn for 11 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

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.

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.

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.
