One of Robin’s focuses to her practice is working with adolescents who may be struggling with life transitions. The teen years can be very difficult as day-to-day life can often feel like an emotional rollercoaster. With an understanding of the development and maturation stages of children and adolescents, Robin has gained experience working with children and teens struggling with a number of life challenges and emotional/behavioural issues:

  • Life changes
  • Social skills and confidence
  • Anxiety and fear
  • Dating and relationships
  • Low self-esteem
  • Low motivation or work ethic
  • Issues in school
  • Explosive anger and emotional outbursts
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Hallucinations
  • Substance abuse and addictions
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Self-harming behaviours
  • Borderline personality disorder (BPD)
