Robin Sweeney


About Me

I'm so glad you've decided to take the steps to find the right counselor to help you create the awesome life you want.

Finding the right therapist can be a challenge, and if you're a member of the LGBTQ community? It can be even more difficult. In the eleven years I've worked as a therapist, I've focused on serving the LGBTQ community. (Of course, everyone's welcome!) I'm a gender specialist, who focuses on helping trans and non-binary people and their families navigate gender transition. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, I help people with issues like depression, anxiety and trauma, who want to improve their lives and relationships.

I believe in meeting you where you are, and working with my clients with compassion and sensitivity is always my priority. We'll work collaboratively to create a treatment plan that helps you build on your strengths. I'm likely to be a good fit for you if you're looking for a counselor who understands a fair amount about pop culture, fandom and dealing with a world that doesn't tolerate difference very well. (If you're looking for someone whose going to tell you what to do, give you a lot of cheerful platitudes or be a faith-based counselor? I'm far less likely to be a good fit!)

I'm looking forward to working with you!

Robin Sweeney is a really good and effective therapist. I highly recommend him. He totally gets me and where I’m coming from. Working with him has been both really helpful and useful, as well as interesting.

I couldn't ask for a better counselor! Always quick to respond, always very insightful, and very supportive. I actively look forward to the messages I receive, and I feel like I've really improved a lot with his help.
