Shakina Robinson

(MS, LPC, PSIT)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist, in the state of Wisconsin and I have been in the field of counseling for 15 years now working as a licensed mental health and substance abuse psychotherapist. I hold a Masters degree (MS) in Community Psychology and a Bachelors degree (BS) in Human Services. I love my career choices more and more each day and I have worked with clients of all ages that deal with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, stress and anger issues. I also have experience in helping clients with grief issues, behavioral issues and working with trauma victims.

I would call my style of counseling as friendly, compassionate and heartfelt. I believe in treating everyone on the same level of respect and compassion, and I don't hold any biases to my clients or their situations. My therapy approach combines a sense of Reality Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Therapy. I am very familiar with many different therapy styles and approaches and I can assure you that I will be able to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I have a real passion for helping others overcome their personal struggles. I believe that everyone has a destiny and with a little guidance, I can help oversee your future endeavors. My philosophy is, Mental health is the biggest investment a person can make for themselves. And as people, we need to be able to recognize the things you can control and the things you can't control. Always think positive and believe in yourself, and live life to the fullest and know that your happiness is in your hands and in no one else. The overall journey to wellness is just as significant as wellness itself is. I like to treat my clients as a whole and allow them to actively engage, invest and take priority in their lives, just as much as I will. As your counselor, I will do my best to help you find your inner best.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.

I have been working with Shakina for about three months. This is my first time working consistently with a counselor and this accountability and avenue to talk about my deeper concerns and rooted issues are helping me stay active in the process of personal growth. Thank you, Shakina!

Shakina is wonderful and really listens to my needs. Sessions feel like I’m having a talk with a good friend (who happens to be qualified to help me and give me advice) and I always look forward to our sessions. She’s amazing, 10/10 would recommend

I am so grateful that I took the leap to sign up for Better Help and start my journey towards healing. And I am even more grateful that I was matched to Shakina Robinson. In only a short two weeks, I have seen a huge difference in my OCD. I feel heard and acknowledged with Shakina and I look forward daily to writing and sharing my journal entry with her. This website and her counseling has been invaluable to me and my mental health.

Written by H.A. on Feb 28, 2020 after counseling with Shakina for 2 weeks

Shakina Robinson has been extremely understanding, kind, and right off the bat provided me the tools to be proactive about the things I brought to the table. I felt I could trust her after our first meeting, and she has been available/flexible in her scheduling – which is amazing!

Written by O.C. on Nov 17, 2019 after counseling with Shakina for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

She is always kind, and I feel like she’s sympathetic to what’s going on in my life. Most days, she’s the only person I feel comfortable talking to.

Written by M.I. on Feb 23, 2019 after counseling with Shakina for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Shakina is amazing and listens to your needs provides knowledge respect advice but also challenges you and sympathizes with you. She is great I would highly recommend her!

Written by N.I. on Dec 31, 2018 after counseling with Shakina for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Dr. Robinson is the first therapist I've connected with in over a decade - and not for a lack of trying. She's down to earth, easy to talk to, and comforting. She listens to what I deal with and what I do when my issues and feelings get the best of me, without harsh judgment, and frankly that's huge and seems to be rare, at least it has been out of the prior therapists I've tried to connect with over the years. I highly recommend her and am thankful I met her through BetterHelp.

Written by S.H. on Dec 31, 2018 after counseling with Shakina for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and career difficulties

I feel like Shakina really hears me. She doesn’t just listen to respond, she listens to help. I feel supported by her. She reminds me of the good things and the progress I’ve made. She’s very easy to talk to.

Written by B.H. on Dec 30, 2018 after counseling with Shakina for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, eating disorders, and self esteem

Shakina has been very supportive and understanding of my mental health needs. She listens to me and offers solutions to help my situation. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wants to work through their anxiety, relationship issues (romantic or family), and stress from life changes.

Written by T.H. on Oct 19, 2018 after counseling with Shakina for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and career difficulties

Shakina has been someone who responds to me messages in a timely manner and she respects me as a person and makes me feel that I deserve a good life and my life is worth being here. Although, I am struggling with a few things, she listens, offers suggestions of what may help and genuinely seems to care. I tried another therapist here and did not feel a connection like I do with Shakina. Thank you for listening to me, not judging me, and truly making me feel you care about me as a person who matters. Maybe not to her specifically but to my family, friends, and most of all my children. Thank you for wanting to help me.

Written by S.A. on Mar 11, 2018 after counseling with Shakina for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, family, grief, eating, and self esteem

Shaking is great! I have been solely writing to her and she is able to get what I am sharing and provide what I need to hear, whether I want to or not.

Dr. Robinson is great in her line of work. I was not sure if I would be able to gain the same benefits being online or messaging but I am able to see her personality and her intentions are pure. I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with her. (Personable, honest, and she educates clients about mental health and any other questions/concerns)
