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.

I sincerely appreciated all of Robin's help during my rough patch from January to May. She was so very supportive and helped me find so many tools for my anxiety and depression management tool kit. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking assistance. She is friendly, kind, and supportive; she truly has your back.

She's like finding someone standing on a path with a lantern and a map after you've been wandering around in the dark forever, not really sure where you were going and what you were actually looking at.

We've only been at this for a couple of weeks but she's been a great help to me! I'm excited about working with her!

Written by S.U. on Jan 06, 2018 after counseling with Robin for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, family, and trauma and abuse

Robin has been a great match for me. She has a profound understanding of what my issues are, without my even having to go into a lot of detail. She was able to provide me with some tools, and some ways of reframing my experiences that helped right away. Much more than I expected, actually. Feeling much better, and very grateful to Robin and BetterHelp.

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.
