As your therapist, my goal – and my passion – is understanding what is most important to you, and what you need to be your best and happiest self. My approach involves building on your strengths as an individual, and using your personal values as a guide to create a fulfilling and authentic life. I specialize in working with issues related to trauma, depression, and anxiety, including suicidal ideation, self-harm, and substance use or abuse. My focus is on identifying how problematic coping patterns have both harmed and benefited you, in order to find and build more healthy and fulfilling ways to recover and meet your needs.
I am experienced in working with teens, parents, and families - including those that are going through transitions such as divorce or becoming step-families/blended families. My work can be with individual teens, parents, or the whole family together. I have a flexible and creative approach that can accommodate any goal and level of motivation for change.

Robin is a wonderfully attentive, compassionate, patient and insightful counsellor. We got right to the kernel of what was coming up for me internally, identified patterns of my own and of others that may contribute to my experience. I walked away with a much deeper understanding and greater perspective on my life. Robin listens closely and became a trusted confidante with the psychological expertise to guide me, that I needed. I felt safe to share anything with her and she became a friend. I highly recommend Robin as a counsellor. She made my first impression of BetterHelp excellent.
