Professional statement

Robin Shamburg, MA, LPC, LCADC, is a therapist and writer in New Jersey. She works with clients navigating life changes. Clients come to her when they are adjusting to a new academic schedule, questioning a relationship, or trapped in a pattern they are unable to change on their own. As a freelance writer with 30+ years of experience, she enjoys helping creative people navigate the ups and downs of creative life.

Robin is especially passionate about helping people stuck in indecision find clarity, learn to trust themselves, and move forward with passion and purpose. Robin has additional training in addictions, which can support clients in eliminating behaviors that no longer serve them.

Robin is trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, so that they can begin to make targeted change. She has additional training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, an action-oriented approach which uses mindfulness to help clients change even when their thoughts and feelings try to hold them back. Her background as a writer makes her uniquely attuned to the language clients use. She believes that our thoughts are a story we tell ourselves, and the way that we describe our past and present has a remarkable way of foretelling our future.

When clients come to her, the first thing they will notice is that Robin listens to them completely. She believes that in this world of rapid, superficial communication, her clients long for an environment where they feel completely listened to and heard, with no distractions.

Robin uses the convenience and privacy of Telehealth to meet her clients exactly where they are at.

Robin enjoys trail running and competing in ultra-marathons, and encourages her clients to use physical activity to enhance their mental health.


Message to clients

You thought you’d be further along by now. More settled, more successful, more adult – whatever that means. You promised yourself you’d make some bold changes once the world opened up, and yet here you are again, stuck. The daily drumbeat of tasks leaves no time for reflection or meaningful action. You function pretty well on your own, but understand that you need a guide to keep you accountable, help you remove mental blocks, and gently nudge you forward.

Recognizing past patterns is only the start. All the insight in the world won't magically transport you to the life you desire. That's where I come in. I'm your support, your sounding board, and your biggest champion of change. Together we will take your insights and turn them into a bold plan of action, break it down into smaller steps, and celebrate you as you reach each goal.

You don't need to do this alone. A little bit of support is all it takes to help you move forward and step into a better future - one in which you feel passionate, purposeful, and empowered.
