“Hello and welcome! Are you feeling overwhelmed and anxious as you tackle your daily life? Do you feel lost and ungrounded while taking on new life challenges? Or, perhaps do you feel isolated and alone, and full of confusing emotions? If so, I am here to be of help. Since 2009, I have been working with people dealing with these challenges and more. We have addressed issues related to anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, sexual assault and abuse, family relationships, ADHD, identity, and attachment. Although, life can be confusing and full of unknowns; growth and relief can happen.” – Robin Allen


Robin works with clients ages 14+ and adults in our Bellevue Office.
