About Me

We have come a long way in how we understand learning styles, sensory preferences, food sensitivities, gut brain connections and dysregulation of the nervous system. Let’s start with looking at your strengths, interests, and support systems. Together we can review your challenges as a student or a parent. Let’s discover your primary learning style, assess your energy level and focus ability. I am skilled with art therapy, calming techniques, aggression release, EMDR using tactile techniques, Trauma First Aide and additional trauma release techniques.

As a Social Worker with 40 years of experience, I can understand the difficulties adolescents experience. I specialize in working with Learning Disabilities, Trauma Release and students who have Behavioral Challenges. There is a wide range of functionality among our students. Maybe your child is on the Autism Spectrum, in Special Education, or an Honor Student. No matter how big the challenge, I have practical information and techniques that can be practiced at home or in school. I appreciate and encourage parental participation. I want you as a parent to get to know me, develop a trusting relationship, and ask lots of questions.

I had a great experience working with Robin. She is very intuitive, insightful and supporting. She came up with many solid, actionable ideas for improving my relationship while also reminding and helping me to take care of myself in the process.

I was reluctant to pursue counseling or therapy due to some bad experiences in the past...but I felt at ease with Robin early on. I knew I would be pursuing counseling for a limited amount of time...so I gave her specific things I needed to work on and told her about specific problems that were creating difficulties for me. She provided me relevant resources.

She took me at my word...and I don't think we wasted any time because of it. I get the impression that she could go a lot deeper if I stuck with it longer -- but I just needed some temporary help and tools.

I think she has different gears...so I think she may be able to accommodate a diversity of personality types. I felt like she was an engaged, authentic person.

Robin is such a kind, caring, beautiful person who always challenged me to look outside myself and look at the bigger picture while also giving me the tools to tackle the day to day relationship and spiritual challenges I was encountering. I am so thankful for her! Highly recommend!

I have already recommended Robin Woolley to several friends. I'm afraid her plate will be too full. She has an intuitive sense about things that speaks to her years of experience.

She is very easy to talk to and super understanding! Would recommend to anyone who is looking for someone to share their day with or just have a conversation with :)

Robin is all about getting to the root cause of the problem and providing practical tools to deal with things. I learned a lot of tips to deal with everyday stress and anxiety - techniques that I can actually practice. I highly recommend Robin!

Robin’s ability to hear me and guide me through our sessions has already helped me immensely. I look forward to our sessions each week.

Robin is wonderful! Welcoming, kind, and so nurturing, which is what I really need. She challenges me and helps me to look at some difficult things as well.

After several mismatches at other counseling locations, Robin is CLEARLY a good match and dove right in, to help us. After only three sessions, I feel glimmers of hope again.

Robin is so empathetic and kind. She has helped me face and heal old woulds that I didn’t know were still there in the time we have been working together. She has a gift of knowing exactly what to say to make me feel supported in my journey.

Written by F.I. on Aug 16, 2021 after therapy with Robin for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Robin is an excellent therapist with great incorporation of practical holistic and science knowledge. It makes for an adventurous exploration and validation of my wounds within a safe space she provides. She listens actively and provides insights divinely. She sends me helpful worksheets to fill out relative to my stress and ways to handle it. She also speaks in my astrology language which made my situation I’m in more clear. We’re currently only on my 3rd session and I can’t wait to dive more into my pool of subconscious realm. You’re a rare gem, Robin! I recommend anyone who are dealing with emotional and mental distress to work with her

Written by K.E. on Aug 10, 2021 after therapy with Robin for 2 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

Robin is fantastic! She is so respectful and doesn't jump to conclusions or play the "know-all", like some other counselors I've worked with. She really listens to your needs and is very in tune with sensitivities, as to not push or pry past your comfort level. She is gentle, yet effective. I highly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a stress/trauma counselor!!

I have just started with Robin. But so far it has been great. She listens to me and understands what I am looking for. I am excited to continue on this journey with her and see how much help she can be.

Robin has helped me a lot over the last few weeks. She has given me different perspectives on issues and also practiced exercises that actually work! Her unique and practical way of counselling has allowed me to better understand my thought process and how to work through negative feelings. She’s very easy to talk to and one of the best counsellors I’ve had!

I matched up with Robin when I first signed up for the service. I was looking for help with anger management and myself and those around me can attest to her abilities as a counsellor/therapist. I would highly recommend her to anybody who needs any kind of help.

Listens extremely well, is composed and calming through the sessions and digging for deeper understanding without applying alot of pressure.

Written by G.I. on Jun 29, 2020 after therapy with Robin for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Working with Robin is like no other talk therapy experience I have had before. I am amazed at how far I've come in just a few sessions! She has prompted me to open up in ways that are positive, and don't require reliving trauma. I'm very grateful for her thoughtful support and her creative style.

Written by B.E. on Jun 21, 2020 after therapy with Robin for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I was initially hesitant to try counseling, but Robin has been absolutely fantastic and now I’m really glad I decided to go for it. She is caring and compassionate and so intuitive in her responses and suggestions. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough and I’m really grateful for all her help and support so far.

Written by A.L. on Jun 17, 2020 after therapy with Robin for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, anger management, bipolar disorder, and adhd

I have been working with Robin for a very short time about 3 weeks, and in those 3 weeks, I have found that I have made changes in not only my mental state and in my state of well being overall. I have found myself, being less stressed about things and I feel more positive about things, I know that I will have bad days but those bad days are part of the recovery and that the end result is going to be well worth it. I am excited to complete the worksheets that Robin sends me and I feel those worksheets have really opened my mind and helped me address what is the cause or causes of the issues that I seem to be suffering from.

I really enjoy working with Robin and I "HIGHLY" recommend her and her services and her approaches to things to anyone that feels, they want to change things in their life and they want to change for the better.

ROBIN WOLLEY ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Robin is a down to earth, friendly and knowledgeable person. Although we have only had 1 video chat so far, I know that I’m comfortable talking to her about very personal things. I’m very glad that I decided to reach out for help and that I had the pleasure of meeting Robin. I look forward to our future video chats as I feeI I have much to learn from her. Thank you Robin!
