My name is Robin Frutchey and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Maryland with over 15 yearsâ€™ experience working with individuals and families. My broad experience includes employment in university and community outpatient clinics, hospital-based outpatient clinics, and both pediatric and adult rehabilitation hospitals.
I currently work as a therapist at hospital-based outpatient weight management center. My training and experience have been focused largely in the area of behavioral medicine, on issues such as weight management, smoking cessation, sleep, chronic disease management, and pain management. I have also worked extensively with clients struggling with eating disorders (primarily binge eating disorder), anxiety (OCD, panic disorder, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety), depression, relationship issues, and parenting challenges (especially when a child has emotional, behavioral, and/or medical problems).
I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches, with the goal of tailoring my style to my clientsâ€™ unique needs. In most cases, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques. These types are therapies are focused on helping clients better understand themselves, gain new perspective, and learn effective ways of managing challenging situations. Therapy can also help individuals who feel â€œstuckâ€ to get unstuck and make necessary changes.
I have a great deal of respect for my clients, care deeply about their well-being, and wholeheartedly believe that if we work together, a happier, healthier future lies ahead!
I look forward to talking with you!

I believe my counselor will be able to help me with any situation I have with regards to my personal life or any issue in general. She is very competent and I would recommend her to anyone.
Robin has a way of breaking down issues in a way that allows me to deal with them bit-by-bit as opposed to a mountain of issues. I have good confidence in her capabilities as a therapist.
Robin is such a big help. She provides me with the resources I need as fast as she can and always replies within a day. Robin allows me to express myself as much as I can and replies in great detail. She is easy to explain and talk to which builds up my confidence! Very happy and grateful to have her help me and looking forward to future conversations.
Thank you Robin Frutchey!
