About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of South Carolina. I have 4 years experience working as a counselor and I have focused on aiding individuals of various cultures, religious beliefs, age groups, LGBT and socio-economic backgrounds. I have experience in stress and anger management, management of PTSD and anxiety issues, sexuality, sexual trauma, abuse and natural and man-made traumatic experiences. I have also aided individuals that have suffered from mood disorder and major depression disorder.

My counseling approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I tend to tailor our treatment and sessions towards the specified needs and goals of the client. My counseling style is very warm, client-oriented and interactive. I work in a manner that is respectful, patient, non-judgmental, sensitive and re-affirming. I tend to seek to empower the client by recognizing his/her strengths and addressing their own copings skills and self-care management. I accept that everyone has their own story and I seek to provide an environment of encouragement and healing so that each person can find their own path to success and inner peace.

When it comes to our mental and emotional health, it is often very difficult to acknowledge that we might need more help that we had previously believed. During this particular journey, work and honesty with one's self is essential but very difficult. As a counselor, I am here to support and guide you as a you seek to begin to live your best life. Let's get started.

Norma is patient and tactful. Over the past few months I’ve been able to feel her compassion without feeling like the lines between therapist and client are being muddled. A good example of healthy boundaries with someone is what I really needed in my life. She’s good for responding to messages when they need to be responded to and is good about reaching out for extra calls/support. She has nvr gotten upset with my off-color jokes, she let’s me talk about what is in my mind as well. Norma is the first person who has ever taken the time to push me a little further (gently) and dig into me when I wasn’t feeling like giving much. I really love appreciate the work she puts into my therapy.

I have loved having her as a therapist. She is the first I have ever had to try to teach me tools that could help me deal with things as they happen. I am very thankful for her.

I find my sessions with Norma Robinson extremely enlightening and beneficial. She offers practical guidance in dealing with my issues. She challenges me to look at situations from a different perspective while still making me feel supported. I see and feel the difference in my outlook after each session.

Finding BetterHelp.com and being connected to my counselor, Norma Robinson has been a godsend. Although it has only been a month, I am feeling better and learning new ways to deal with what life brings. It feels great to talk with someone, especially someone trained to help people overcome stress and anxiety. I especially love the ease of talking from wherever I am without having to drive to a location for sessions! I highly recommend BetterHelp.com!

Words can’t describe how grateful I am for Norma. I had to make some hard and life changing decisions to pursue my own happiness, and she gave me the support and advice I needed to accomplish that. I’m in a much better place today thanks to Norma.
