What Robin would like you to know about her:

I work with people of all ages. I treat individuals challenged by anxiety disorders, OCD, depression, traumatic events, suicidality, perfectionism, eating disorders, and adjustment issues. I work with teens who really dislike school and/or struggle with school, as well as with teens who succeed in school and are still stressed by it. I particularly enjoy working with twice-exceptional children, “third-culture kids,” exchange students, and dancers.  

I believe you’re the expert in your life, and I know a lot about evidence-based treatment. Together, we figure out what’s making your life challenging, what would make your life easier, then learn and practice new skills to alleviate some of the challenges. Eventually, I hope you’ll know how to use those skills so effectively and that I’ll end up out of a job.
