Robin has worked in diverse clinical settings including hospital mental health clinics, university counselling centers, and private practice. She has extensive experience and interest in working with a wide range of presenting issues including anxiety, mood, and personality disorders, sexual dysfunction, binge eating, relationship difficulties, grief, life transitions, and LGBTQ issues.
She completed her pre-doctoral internship at the Allan Memorial Institute in both the Sex and Couple Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy clinics, where she received specialized training in couple therapy, treatment of sexual dysfunction, and working with bariatric surgery patients to prepare for and adjust to life post-surgery.
Believing that well-being entails more than the absence of distress, Robin strives not only to help her clients learn to cope more effectively, but also to reconnect with their values to live a more satisfying and meaningful life. She employs an integrative approach in psychotherapy, to meet the unique needs of each individual and couple that she works with. She utilizes elements from a variety of evidence-based treatments including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT). Robin is empathic, authentic and prioritizes the establishment of a collaborative, safe and validating therapeutic environment. She practices primarily in English.
