At times, life can feel difficult and unmanageable. Feelings of depression, anxiety, adjustment, anger, trauma and grief can be overwhelming. Patterns in your life may seem to be repeating themselves and you are unsure of why. You may be thinking “How do I start this difficult task of finding someone for support?” I am here to help. As a therapist for more than a decade. I have worked in many types of settings (private practice, institutions and public sector) and have treated a variety of disorders.
Coping skills and tools acquired during the therapeutic process can be life changing. Suffering from psychological stressors takes a toll not only mentally but physically. If you are tired of experiencing these discomforts you are ready for therapeutic inventions. The first step is to reach out and discuss your current stressors and struggles by completing an intake form. Completing the intake form online is free of charge. Once the form is completed, I will contact you to discuss our first counseling session. To ensure you are feeling secure with sharing information about yourself, I would like to clarify that all sessions are confidential and your privacy is important to me.
I am Robin Roberts, an expat American therapist residing in Amsterdam, previously living in the United States. I have a generalized psychology practice and work with individuals, families, children, couples and groups. I have a bachelors degree in psychology from University of Massachusetts and a masters degree in social work from University of Rhode Island. I am a licensed clinical social worker with more than a decade of experience.
Over the last decade, I have provided counseling and therapeutic services to various age groups suffering from depression, grief/loss, anxiety, adjustment issues, expat therapy, addiction, social difficulties, trauma, sexual abuse, neglect, domestic violence, elder abuse, self esteem and relationship difficulties, sexuality/gender issues, anger management, care giver stress, and burn out. My experience includes working with patients in a private practice setting addressing the issues listed above. During the years of working in private practice, I have also worked with individuals on parole and probation who have been mandated to treatment, as well as individuals who voluntarily wanted to change their current life situation.
“Working with Robin has massively changed my life for the better. It’s actually quite hard to describe the transformation because all those intense bad feelings from a few years ago really have faded over time, which I did not believe was possible when we started. It was not an easy process, especially in the beginning, however I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to bring about positive changes in themselves and is willing to do the (sometimes very challenging) work. It was a relief to be able to speak completely openly, with a focus on help and not on judgement. This made me more able to feel and express all of my feelings, positive and negative.”
“Robin helped my family and I stabilize and improve our relationships in our home. Our conversations helped me to resolve my work issues and move forward. Robin helped me have a more positive outlook, to learn but not dwell on the past, and most of all appreciate all the good things in my life for which I am thankful.
Along the years, I was faced with making some very difficult life changing decisions, some that caused anxiety and melt- downs. I very thankful and fortunate to say that Robin was always a phone call away. In my moments of despair Robin listened and helped me battle my fears.”
