Robin Okun is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who works with women across the life span in the state of Massachusetts. Whether you are a university student or establishing a career path, single or partnered, balancing work life issues and self care, or an empty nester reinventing yourself, Robin has a deep understanding for the unique challenges women navigate in work, school, family, and interpersonal relationships.
Many of Robin’s clients are emotionally sensitive, care deeply for others, and often struggle with managing interpersonal conflict and making themselves a priority. Her style is non-judgmental and interactive which allows her to quickly establish a relationship that fosters comfort, safety, and change.
With a trauma informed approach to her work, Robin helps clients identify influences of past experiences on their present life situations. As this awareness grows, her clients develop a deeper understanding of their physical and emotional responses. Robin's clients often report noticeable changes working with her after just the first session, quickly learning to integrate insights and strategies to better manage the inevitable challenges that emerge in life.
Robin earned her Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan. In addition to having a private psychotherapy practice, Robin is also a professional acrylic painter. With a background in dance, writing, and painting, Robin has the understanding and skills to work well with artists addressing issues related to creativity, creative blocks, handling rejections, and balancing art making with social, emotional, and economic concerns.
