Robyn’s life experiences and challenges have helped her to see the benefits and strength that come out of facing ones challenges and coming out as an overcomer, she believes that this has helped her to better understand her clients and help them walk through their journey of healing. Robyn’s goal as a clinician is to give the unconditional support her clients need to see their own strength to get through their current struggles, and to help the clients become emotionally healthier and happier in who they are and who they want to be, both individually and systemically. Robyn takes a collaborative approach in working with clients as she knows that, though we are the experts of therapy, the clients are the experts of their own lives and their own families.
