Work with Robyn

20151005_DSC_8240-orig_headshotI am honored to join families on their journey toward healing and connection. When a client chooses to include me in their inner-most experiences, I am humbled by the magnitude of their trust and hope, thankful to be walking alongside them down this path. I work with children, families, and adults impacted by trauma and loss, including adoption, abuse, neglect, medical trauma, and birth trauma.  In 2013 I founded the Central Texas Attachment & Trauma Center in order to provide excellence in care in one location to children and families.

After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Miami University, I went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Utah. I am licensed in the state of Texas as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW #40735). Some of my additional training includes:

  •  Certificate in Therapy with Foster and Adoptive Children & Families – Portland State University
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)- Certified EMDR Therapist
  •  EMDR Integrative Team Treatment for Attachment Trauma in Children
  • Circle of Security® Parent Educator
  • Trust Based Relational Intervention® Educator
  • Somatic Experiencing- Beginner Level
  • DEEP (Dynamic Enriched Experiential Psychotherapy)
  • The Alert Program for Sensory Regulation
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology

I have been lucky to have trained with some of the most dynamic clinicians in the field of attachment, trauma, and Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), including Deborah D. Gray, Drs. Karyn Purvis and David Cross, Dr. Daniel Siegel, Dr. Bonnie Badenoch, and Debra Wesselmann.  My office is in Austin, TX, where I see children and family for trauma and attachment counseling.

I’d love to hear from you!  Please send me an email to

    Hello Robyn,
    I am curious if you have any information in your trainings about how trauma impacts the brain physically, much like prenatal exposure to alcohol and TBI, creating actual differences in the brain structure and function which would explain many of the behaviours displayed by children.

      Hi Nathalie- Definitely! Are you looking for a specific training? Different trainings target different issues. The training I’m running most currently focuses on memory disruption during trauma as opposed to ‘brain damage.’ But other trainings focus on the impact of trauma on emotional regulation, sensory processing/regulation, and other brain disruptions. Let me know if that doesn’t answer your question! ~Robyn
