What People Say About Dr. Robin Shaw, PHD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Overall, Dr. Shaw helped me in areas like work. When it came to dating/relationships, she was very judgemental and shaming. After discussing this topic, I left feeling worse. I felt criticised and blamed for very serious issues. I did not feel emotionally safe with her. Very upsetting and would never recommend her to anyone

I started seeing Dr. Shaw almost 7 years ago. Looking back over these years, some of the biggest decisions and challenges I have successfully managed have been with her guidance and support. Her flexible schedule (evenings and weekends!) and calm empathetic style make her a perfect fit for doctors or other professionals. I would highly recommend her!

Dr Shaw is a wonderfully kind, compassionate, smart therapist who has a knack at both supporting the patient and challenging them to analyze their thoughts and the validity of some assumptions that may be contributing to suffering. She has helped me immensely and I am so grateful for the work we have done together. I can honestly say my life has been changed by doing therapy with her.

I've been seeing Dr. Shaw on and off for 5 years for ongoing help with PTSD, depression, anxiety and addiction issues. She never ceases to surprise me with perspective insights and little tidbits of advice that stick with me long-term. I've been in therapy for almost 30 years now, and she is by far my most trusted confidante and effective therapist I've ever had.
