About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Washington state with over 5 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, psychosis, trauma, and those facing life changes and challenges.

I am a compassionate and engaging therapist who will create a safe environment for you. Here, you will feel comfortable discussing your struggles, concerns, and feelings. I will guide and support you as you examine different aspects of your life and come to conclusions that help you create a new ability to engage with your world. My work focuses on helping people improve their ability to cope with the challenges and crises of their lives, regain an authentic sense of self and wholeness, and grow into healthy, deeper relationships. My approach combines humanistic, psychodynamic, neuropsychology, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. You and I will work collaboratively to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to reach out for assistance in achieving a happier and more fulfilling life. I would really like to help you on your journey to a stronger and more authentic sense of self.
I look forward to working with you!

Robyn is amazing. I wish I could flop out some superlatives and big college words but she is an amazing person and I got extremely matching with her. She has been a new pillar on which to stand and without her these last few months would have been impossible. If you read this Robyn, thank you.

Written by H.I. on Apr 30, 2022 after therapy with Robyn for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Robyn is very patient and listen to me very well. She helps me by empowering me and giving me practical ways to overcome my stress and deal with hard situations. She understands that I only need support and I don’t need to be judged by my decisions. I feel lucky to have her as my therapist.

Robyn is an incredibly good listener. I feel so understood by her in such a short time. I can express any kind of chaotic energy and emotion to her and she will receive it with a gentleness and probe with just the right kind of questions to help me unravel how I feel. She goes at my pace, and makes great suggestions/ideas for what I can work on or try after each session. I’m really thankful for her and our conversations.

Written by H.A. on Mar 12, 2022 after therapy with Robyn for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and career difficulties

Robyn is amazing. She’s incredibly kind and soft in her speech, her tone is comforting and soothing and she’s overall a very calming presence. Robyn creates and holds a safe space in each session that has really allowed me to open up and express the aspects of myself that are difficult for me to voice even to myself. I feel seen and heard in a way I’ve never felt and for that I am grateful. She has great tact and delivers advice, knowledge and recommendations in a kind, supportive and uplifting way. I’m really glad I have Robyn in my corner.

Super understanding and compassionate therapist! Robyn even checks in on you if it’s been a little while since your last appointment!

Written by B.R. on Feb 24, 2022 after therapy with Robyn for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Robyn has been a pillar in my personal development and improvement over the past year plus. She has a wonderful way of connecting with you and creating a safe space to open up. It feels like we have true and genuine conversations that discuss my struggles, questions, thoughts and how I can better cope. I had explored other therapists before over the years and there has never been that sense of ease, warmth, safety as I have experienced with Robyn. She is by far the best!

Written by A.L. on Aug 06, 2021 after therapy with Robyn for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Robyn helped me through a very difficult time in my life with compassion, expert advice, and professionalism. She gave me a safe place to voice my fears, which eased them immensely, and also gave me the practical tools to overcome my panic attacks and get the really scary things done. Both her listening abilities & knowledgeable feedback were spot on. I will definitely work with her again in the future if I need to! Thank you, Robyn!

Robyn was able to give me gracious doses of support, help and advice when I was going through a rough period of anxiety, stress, relationship and family issues, as well as emotional trauma and PTSD. She’s insightful and gave me tools to better understand myself and my situation. She is easy to talk to and helped me put things into perspective in a way I didn’t think about before. Thank you, Robyn!!!
