About Me

Forty years ago, I was trained as a Holistic Social Worker. I have worked across the America's with all age groups and numerous cultures. It is important to me to offer you person-centered communication to support you strengthening your own motivation to change. No one knows you like you do! There are many healing traditions out there and I will honor you and your choices.

My approach to counseling combines cognitive (thought) and somatic (body) techniques. I specialize in working with stress and trauma. We all have different responses to stress and trauma. I work with how your nervous system has been dysregulated, basic understanding that Trauma is in the nervous system not the event. Symptoms arise when residual energy from the experience is not released from the nervous system. For instance, if your system is stuck on "High" you may be experiencing Rage, Hyperactivity, Elation/Mania, Anxiety, Panic and engaging in high risk behavior. If your system is stuck on "Low" you could be experiencing Depression, Disconnection, Hopeless, Exhaustion and Numbness.

Together we will help your Nervous System Discharge! I have used these techniques successfully helping veterans who return from war with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, those who survive natural disasters, abuse, medical procedures and any experience where you felt your life was threatened. Telling your story over and over can be re-traumatizing and I will not do that to you! I am trained in EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Art Therapy, Self-Hypnosis, Trauma First Aide to name a few. In my experience talk therapy is like riding in a car, you get there but it takes longer. When you combine cognitive and somatic therapies, it's like getting on a jet! Our World is changing let’s make that a positive.

Let’s drop the weight of the past and soar towards the future, are you ready?

Listens extremely well, is composed and calming through the sessions and digging for deeper understanding without applying alot of pressure.

Working with Robin is like no other talk therapy experience I have had before. I am amazed at how far I've come in just a few sessions! She has prompted me to open up in ways that are positive, and don't require reliving trauma. I'm very grateful for her thoughtful support and her creative style.

I was initially hesitant to try counseling, but Robin has been absolutely fantastic and now I’m really glad I decided to go for it. She is caring and compassionate and so intuitive in her responses and suggestions. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough and I’m really grateful for all her help and support so far.

I have been working with Robin for a very short time about 3 weeks, and in those 3 weeks, I have found that I have made changes in not only my mental state and in my state of well being overall. I have found myself, being less stressed about things and I feel more positive about things, I know that I will have bad days but those bad days are part of the recovery and that the end result is going to be well worth it. I am excited to complete the worksheets that Robin sends me and I feel those worksheets have really opened my mind and helped me address what is the cause or causes of the issues that I seem to be suffering from.

I really enjoy working with Robin and I "HIGHLY" recommend her and her services and her approaches to things to anyone that feels, they want to change things in their life and they want to change for the better.

ROBIN WOLLEY ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Robin is a down to earth, friendly and knowledgeable person. Although we have only had 1 video chat so far, I know that I’m comfortable talking to her about very personal things. I’m very glad that I decided to reach out for help and that I had the pleasure of meeting Robin. I look forward to our future video chats as I feeI I have much to learn from her. Thank you Robin!
