Robyn holds a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Family Relations and Human Development from the University of Guelph. She is a Registered Clinical Counselor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
Robyn also holds a national designation as a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist with the Canadian Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. This designation means that she is a systemically trained therapist and has completed more clinical training and course work in couple and family therapy where the client is not just a single person, but the relationships in which the person is embedded along with structural and contextual systems (e.g., power, societal discourses, legal systems) that influence our lives.
Robyn has been providing individual, couple, and family therapy since 2010. She’s worked in community agencies, family health teams, and private practices. Robyn also has a strong background in education and teaching at the university level and was previously a faculty member at UBC from 2018-2021.
Her style is best described as warm, caring, nonjudgmental, and eclectic while taking a collaborative approach with her clients to address the problems they are experiencing in a way that helps them move forward. Robyn’s approach with her clients is collaborative and strength based. She works with clients to draw upon their own unique resources and abilities to address challenges and promote the changes they want in their life. Her role is to offer a different perspective and ask thought provoking questions that support clients in creating different or new stories about their lives. She uses a variety of therapeutic techniques (i.e., Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Systems and Strength based perspectives, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Exposure Therapy) that are tailored to her clients and the goals they are working towards. Robyn views therapy as a process in which individuals are no longer happy with the story of their life and therapy provides an opportunity to create a different or new story.
