Written on Sep 28, 2022 after therapy with Mary (Robin) for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

Robin’s counseling is all I believe a person would hope to find in their therapist… friendly, engaging, calming, a great listener and expertly helps her patients discover deeper appreciation for the small changes that are required (in thinking, action and personal perspectives) that aid in overcoming the debilitating challenges of life.
