Professional statement

Robin Okun is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker supporting women across the life span. She has a deep understanding and compassion for the unique challenges women navigate in work, family, and interpersonal relationships. Her clients are emotionally sensitive, care deeply for others, and have difficulty managing interpersonal conflict and making themselves a priority.

As a creative with a background in dance, writing, and painting, Robin has the experience and skills to help artists address issues related to creativity, creative blocks, handling rejections, and balancing art making with social, emotional, and economic concerns.

Robin’s gentle, non-judgmental, interactive style allows her to quickly establish a relationship that fosters comfort and change. She brings a trauma informed approach to her work helping clients identify influences of past experiences as well as the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As this awareness evolves, Robin helps clients understand their physical and emotional responses and implement cutting edge strategies to manage the inevitable challenges in life with greater insight, ease, and comfort.

Clients report noticeable changes working with Robin, often during the first session. She is a seasoned Telehealth provider who began working virtually with her clients over 10 years ago. Prior to the rise in Telehealth due to the COVID pandemic, she understood that remote therapy is effective. accessible and more easily integrated into a self care plan.

Message to clients

As your therapist and guide I will listen deeply so that you feel seen, heard, and understood. Meaningful changes will unfold as we co-create a safe healing space. Together we will identify themes, patterns, and goals that will open to insights, self acceptance and greater emotional freedom.

My therapeutic approach is trauma informed, strength based, and body centered. You will develop awareness, tools and strategies to support you and lead to a greater capacity to thrive and enjoy life.

If this feels like a good fit, please reach out to me. I look forward to hearing from you!
