“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” –David Richo

Are you experiencing difficulty in your relationships, or suffering from a traumatic experience? I am ready to help you find the path to healing. I offer an open and accepting space in which you can be, or discover, your most authentic self. I work alongside you in your journey of deeper introspection and greater self-awareness. It is my goal to understand each individual’s experience and provide you the tools you need to pursue a healthier and more fulfilling life.

My experience working with individuals, couples and families in the areas of relationships, trauma and addiction are some of the issues in which I specialize. As a veteran of the US Marine Corps, I offer insights to veterans, active duty military members and their families, including experience in the areas of PTSD and deployment related issues.

I am trained to help those who have been through traumatic experiences utilizing an extensively researched and effective treatment, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.

"I honestly have been against therapy and was hesitant before working with Robyn. I am so grateful Jennifer referred her to me and not having family or many friends here, I'm beyond appreciative of the support and guidance she has given me in this difficult part of my life!"

"Robyn is very easy to talk to and never condescending. She always ends the session on a good note. She responds when I'm in crisis outside of our session time."

"Robyn has an open mind and an open heart. She exercises vulnerability within the therapy sessions, which has allowed for me to feel comfortable and safe to do the same."

"I don't know where my life would be or how my life would look if I hadn't begun therapy with Robyn. I find her feedback helpful. I value the perspectives I gain from the therapy sessions we've had. I don't know if I would ever be able to express the gratitude I have for Robyn. The therapy sessions we've had have completely changed my life. The sessions are so valuable to me, I would consider staying in this area just to continue them for however long is necessary."
