About Me

When people experience trauma or severe life stressors, their lives can sometimes unravel. My desire is to help those who have been through stressful or traumatic experiences heal and recover, to find healthy insights and strengthen their relationships and supports so they can feel calm, stronger and more confident in themselves.

My style is to help clients find coping strategies as well as empowering them to recognize and use their strengths and abilities to improve their lives. I know how to listen, helps clients identify and understand self-defeating thoughts and behaviors, encourage them to make positive changes, and motivate clients to learn and grow.

My specialties are woman's issues, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, stress management, self-esteem, coping skills, major life changes, blended families, parenting issues, anger management, and trauma.

I know how to listen, help clients identify and understand self-defeating thoughts and behaviors, encourage them to make positive changes, and motivate clients to learn and grow. I look forward to the opportunity to assist you.

"I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason, bringing something we must learn. and we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them and we help them in return." -For Good, from Wicked.

Robin is a deeply empathetic and wise counselor who has been able to understand my perspective in a way I don’t think a therapist has before. She validates my feelings and experience without any hesitation or doubt. I feel that she trusts me, which is a kind of gift. Talking to her is so empowering and has been instrumental in supporting me as I emerge from one of the most difficult experiences of my life. I couldn’t ask for a better counselor and I’m so glad she’s available to me as I recover. Feeling heard and supported is incredible, but Robin will also gently challenge me when I need it which I appreciate. Finally, I value her insights that are regularly transformative to my processing. Thanks Robin:)

Robin has been quick to respond and a great listener. She has made me feel comfortable with the online therapy process and I trust her expertise. Knowing that she's easily accessible to me when I need her provides me with a sense of calm I have not experienced with other types of therapy.

This is a person who understood me from the beginning. Her advice was spot on. Even though my issues still exist, she pulled me out of a dark hole and I thank her so much for that.

Very qualified, checks in appropriately if I don't contact her. Friendly, nonjudgmental.
