Robin is a Registered Social Worker with undergraduate (BA, BSW) and graduate degrees (MSW) from the University of Western Ontario. Her compassionate approach to counselling/psychotherapy is holistic, client-centered and grounded in mindfulness. Her philosophy is based on the assumption that each person inherently holds the capacity to create and live a meaningful and fulfilling life. She views the counseling process as one means to awaken this potential while addressing the barriers to growth and healing. Robin integrates a variety of therapeutic interventions to the unique needs of each client. Much of her experience has been with individuals who have experienced trauma or childhood abuse and she has specialized training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She is comfortable with a variety of issues including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, transitions, loss, and relationships.
