I have over twelve years of clinical experience in a variety of environments including outpatient, inpatient, community, and in-home settings. I specialize in working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and clients of all ages who have experienced varying types of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. This experience has helped to expand my clinical areas of expertise such as stress and anxiety reduction, management of depressive and mood symptoms, harm reduction and substance abuse, and symptoms/risk behaviors associated with personality and attachment disorders. Additionally, I have worked within the foster care system providing both individual and family therapy services to children, adolescents, and guardians. I incorporate an array of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and solution-focused interventions into my treatment approach. In my extensive work with anxiety disorders and effects of trauma, I have frequently utilized DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) techniques, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and other interventions which focus on the psychosomatic manifestation of mental suffering in the body. I am motivated to help clients integrate past experiences into their current identity to increase insight in such a way as to make progress toward personal goals.

As your therapist, I will provide a safe, non-judgmental approach to create a comfortable, therapeutic environment. Together we will develop a treatment plan that is specific to your needs and personal goals. Cognitive-behavioral techniques, solution-focused strategies and mindfulness are some of the interventions used in therapy.

“Together, we will work on strategies that address the root cause of difficulties. We have what we need inside us. Let’s use curiosity and compassion to ask the hard questions. Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts. Through talk therapy, we can address past hurts in a safe and supportive therapeutic space free of judgment. Doing so will begin the healing process. The focus is to empower your quiet voice within to share your truth with first yourself and then others. The goal is to end historic pain by creating a more pleasant present, which allows you to live your best life.

A bit about me: A native New Yorker, I acquired my MSW following a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from CCNY. Essentially, I view myself as a Life Coach, a motivator who recognizes that we’re all unique individuals, but do share many of the same thoughts and feelings. Most of us have struggled with anxiety, uncertainty and self-doubt- yet we’ve also experienced feeling confident, grounded and secure. Our backgrounds and early childhood experiences, our genetic predispositions all serve to shape our personalities and the essence of our being. To that end, as a clinician, I strive to guide individuals to examine their beliefs- in order to gain insight into their potentially self-destructive behavior- or whatever they perceive as getting in the way of their success. Together, we explore why you’ve sought treatment Now and what you’re looking to achieve or gain. What do you identify as the challenges or issues, what have you tried so far and what’s gotten in the way? Is it apathy/complacency versus a burning desire? How do you keep the momentum going and is FEAR getting in the way? The power of ignited vision means becoming laser-focused, but how? Let's identify the roadblocks (obstacles) while developing strategies to combat them. I have helped many clients build high performance habits, starting with self-talk, sharpening their self-awareness and being intentional. Let’s get started. As Anthony Robbins would say, “when would now be a good time?!”

Welcome! I am Robyn. These days many people are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and depressed. Sometimes they feel as if no matter what they do, it isn't enough and either they or those around them are never happy with themselves. How about you? Are you trying to manage to be the best parent, spouse, and employee that you can be? Are you struggling with a recent life transition or the loss of a loved one or relationship? Are you lying awake at night reviewing the list of things you think you should have accomplished? Or are you ruminating on what you said to someone, how you said it, and what you should have done differently? You are not alone! Many people experience these feelings and you do not have to continue to feel like this! You CAN FEEL BETTER! I work with adults of all ages who are struggling with these things by providing a safe space to talk about and work through these issues. I strive to empower them to discern their strengths, their priorities, and the barriers to feeling better. Once we’ve done that, I help them find ways to address those barriers and build new coping skills they can use to overcome the challenges of anxiety, depression, managing change, and people-pleasing. Change is not easy! I am impressed by your courage in taking the first step of asking for help to start your journey toward feeling better! You deserve to have someone skilled and trustworthy to guide you to grow and heal. I will compassionately work with you using evidence-based techniques to get beyond the challenges you are experiencing and on the road to feeling better! I’d love to have the privilege of working with you!

I listen and try to understand your situation and learn what it's like to be you. I can offer suggestions but I won't tell you what to do. I believe that my clients know what they need to do to help them heal, it might not be clear right away but after I am able to understand your problems we can work together to find solutions. It's a big step to seek counseling and to go into therapy. I respect everyone who wants to improve their mental health and well being. It isn't easy to seek help and allow oneself to be vulnerable and share ones' experience. I have listened to thousands of people and I am delighted hear everyone's story to see how I can help.

Hey there! My name is Kelly. In my practice, I provide compassionate care and support to individuals, couples, and families seeking therapy. I believe in the power of collaborative therapy and strive to create a nurturing and supportive environment where clients can embark on their journey to self-discovery and well-being. I offer a confidential and judgment-free space for authentic expression. Mental health should be accessible, digestible, a love letter to yourself, and self-care people actually want to engage in. I believe in the power of laughing and humor in sessions and love when clients are able to be fully themselves whether it's using TikToks to show how they're feeling, cursing like a sailor, or letting go of the mask they wear daily. Everyone deserves therapeutic support that respects and honors their individuality. If you're ready to start your journey towards healing and growth, I am here to support you every step of the way! I look forward to hearing from you and being part of your journey.
