Hello, my name is Rhiannon and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in California. I have been providing therapy since 2005, primarily working with children, adolescents, parents, families, and couples. I specialize in helping children, teens, and young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and attention difficulties as well as assisting parents with skills to help their children develop emotionally, academically, and socially. My passion is to help all ages learn effective coping strategies to manage challenges related to focus, anxiety, depression, and anger/aggression. Another strong focus of my practice is with couples and the various relationships in our lives. Here, learning and mastering positive and effective communication and problem-solving skills is key to creating supportive partnerships and increasing our quality of life.
Originally from New York, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a Minor in Studio Art in Baltimore, Maryland, and then obtained my Master’s degree in Marital and Family Therapy with a concentration in Art Therapy from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California. I utilize interventions from cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, family systems theory, art therapy, and mindfulness practices. These approaches support the processes of increasing awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, developing more effective strategies/skills to make changes and reach personal goals, and ultimately lead to a sense of feeling more balanced and satisfied with our lives.
I believe that in order for the therapeutic process to be successful, we will focus on your strengths and you being the “expert” in your life. As a facilitator of growth and awareness, I look forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Coping with life changes, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Communication Problems, Mood Disorders, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Women's Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Method, Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

T. Rhiannon Tobin is a great therapist. I started off hesitant to start therapy, but she was patient and understanding every step of the way. I've learned a great deal of practicing ways to aid my depression and anxiety through her and I've seen grand results. She makes me feel encouraged and helps guide me use grounding techniques that are personalized for me. I'm so thankful.

Rhiannon Tobin is very knowledgeable in her field. She has taught me techniques and approaches that I never learned at my in person therapist. She takes the time to truly understand how you are feeling and why you are feeling that way. She challenges me to be a better version of myself in a gentle, encouraging way.
