About Me

Hi my name is Robin Denk. I studied Clinical Social Work at New York University and have nine years of experience as a social worker. I also practice mindfulness, meditation and yoga. I would love to get started working with you and am happy to answer any questions you may have for me.  I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, emotional abuse and physical trauma. My therapeutic approach is client centered, utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused, narrative therapy, mindfulness, and attachment theory as tailored to your needs.

My specialty is understanding you as an individual and customizing a plan that can help you organize and tackle obstacles. You tell me your stories, how you see and understand the world, how this shapes your relationships, what makes you experience various feelings and emotions. I listen and provide a safe non judgmental space to share. We will process all of this together. In the breakdown,  we will find the humor, the hurt, the anxiety, the anger, the joy. We'll figure out what causes these feelings (some potential triggers)  and identify some do-able changes to work towards creating the life you desire. Right now it may feel like you are so far away from this, but you will get there. Just taking the first step in seeking therapy to cope with these transitions and feelings is brave and a huge step in the therapeutic process. 

I look forward to working with you!

Robin has made a profound impact in my life. Thanks to her, I feel optimistic towards my life and future for the first time in quite a while. She is down-to-Earth, compassionate, and determined to understand exactly what I'm saying in order to best provide the care I need. I cannot recommend or thank Robin enough.

I had this huge amount of confidence thanks to the interventions and timely messages and chats I had with Robin regarding my marital issues. She knows how to tap your strengthens and weaknesses and shows an immense amount of empathy and concern.Someone across borders who gets where I'm coming from even though we're cultural opposites.

Robin is very helpful and positive. She has helped me with my depression and anxiety and given me great tools to help me with issues that I have been having for a long time. I highly recommend Robin and a therapist.

I was in a really tough hole, I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Robin offered me guidance by listening to me, actually hearing me and offering me input as well as educating me about coping mechanisms. I already miss her!

Robin puts such care into our time together in our appointments. I feel listened to and beyond that, like my concerns are being respected and valued. There hasn’t been an appointment we have had where she hasn’t helped guide me through some of my most difficult emotions and I have always felt confident and secure going through them with Robin.

Robin has a very friendly tone and seems to be client-centered in her approach. I came in with a lot of background to work through and a list of goals. Robin got right into all of it and discussed a plan of how I might go about meeting those goals before we even had our first session. In the first session she gave me measurable/trackable goals for the week that we can check-in on the following week.

Robin is also very responsive to daily messages/updates throughout the week. Overall, I'm very happy to have been assigned to her. I highly recommend Robin Denk to anyone looking for a counselor!

She’s so amazing and passionate about her psychology knowledge! She does everything to make sure you’re safe and okay! She’s so understanding. I feel so comfortable with her and I’m glad I chose her as my counselor. I don’t regret it! I hope to continue to work her, and she’s so flexible with scheduling. Robin, thanks for being there for me!

Robin has been extremely supportive and has guided me and helped me to heal and put myself first in the process. When I started I felt like I was facing a mountain, and now I feel relief. I would definitely recommend her.
