The co-founder of SunRaven: The Home of Slow Medicine, Robin facilitates individual, couple, family, and group therapy sessions and workshops. Through this work, she teaches that our wounds can, paradoxically, serve as fertile soil for awakening, transforming, and blossoming, and with this perspective, she guides individuals through their own unique journeys into wholeness – honoring the wisdom of their bodies and souls, helping them cultivate their emotional intelligence, and providing the security and nurturance they need to step into their fullest beings.
Against the backdrop of a society where so many of us are discouraged not only from discussing but even from feeling emotions that are rendered “difficult,” Robin invites clients to express themselves purely and authentically, and she offers numerous material and emotional support tools for doing so in a way that is safe and nourishing. As such, clients have the opportunity to experience a healing alchemy that leads to a whole-being metamorphosis.
