Started seeing Robyn in 2019 after my wife left me suddenly. She took me through a much needed grief process. The support and guidance I had was overwhelmingly needed during my darkest days. I was able to pick up the pieces and move on. Most recently referred my cousin and she is breaking through some serious depression she has had for years.

HAnds Down the best therapy! I started on the phone with her. As a 60y old women it totally changed my mindset. I feel almost born again. I went back to church as I needed to heal the pain from my religious background

We saw her for marriage counseling and hands-down the best therapy. I agree with all the other reviews and can’t think this therapist enough. We wouldn’t be married still if it wasn’t for the therapy and our hard work with her.

One of the most outstanding qualities about robin is the way she could point things out to me that i couldn't see without being critical. I thought everything in the world was black and white and she helped me see colors is the only way i can describe this therapy. She is so ex perienced and has a knack for knowing what to say and how to speak into life. I now believe that my diagnosis was just a state of emotional maturity and now i dont fit any of those criteria. I can now be the parent i want to be. Everything is better.

My daughter saw Robyn when she was 21. I could not believe how much she matured and grew in just a few months. My sister went as well. My sister had bad depression and just divorced. She was skeptical because she had bad experiences with therapy in the past. After 4 months I saw her smiling again and learning parenting skills that we certainly were not brought up with. I finally started seeing her about 5 months ago and my marriage has literally turned around. It was great before but now

I am more of a love avoidant , but my wife bought the online course and I saw a huge change in her. I decided to try it as well. Our marriage is the best its ever been . I didn't realize how her neediness was making me feel trapped. I liked the boundary section the most. It also helped us parent our three kids more effectively.

I just took her course and love addiction. It is an online course done over seven weeks. It has truly changed my life. I wish that I would've had it 20 years ago before I made so many mistakes. This was better than five years of therapy !!!

I drove down from Los Angeles to see her. I did phone sessions and took her online course. This therapy absolutely changed my life. It was the best time and money ever spent. My relationships every single one of them have changed and improved. I owe this therapy my life.

I live in Santa Barbara. My sister saw Robyn for an intensive. I was really skeptical about therapy because It hasn't worked for me in the past. She told me that It would be the best decision of my life. She was right. Its hard to imagine that therapy would work on the phone, but it did. This is a structured therapy and so many tools for relationships to work. I didnt think that I even needed therapy. I learned about how closed off I had become in my life. I learned why these walls came up .

I am a 54 year old male. My entire life was spent working and avoiding my wife and kids. I didn't know how to love or feel any emotions. After 25 years of marriage my wife was going to leave. We were in therapy with around 6 different therapists over a 10 year period. We spent thousands of dollars and many hours going around in circles. I had never even heard the term love avoidant or knew that I was one. Two friends swore by Robyn and I pleaded with my wife to give me another chance. Amazing
