Robyn attended the University of Connecticut as an undergraduate and graduated with a double major in Psychology and American Sign Language along with a concentration in Creative Writing. While there she played a crucial role in developing the American Sign Language program and was the first to graduate from the university with a major in this area of study.

While at Gallaudet she elected to participate in an observer-ship at Georgetown Hospital and completed her final internship at The Kennedy Krieger Institute (KKI) and Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) in Baltimore working in the field of pediatric psychology.
Following her internship, Robyn was offered and accepted a position with the Pediatric Psychology Consultation Program at KKI.

Robyn also provided inpatient consultation services, as well as worked with pediatric interdisciplinary medical clinics; both within the institute and JHH. During her 5-years in Baltimore Robyn acquired a great deal of experience assessing and treating children and adolescents with chronic and acute medical conditions through the implementation of combined behavioral techniques.
Robyn specializes in client centered, intervention based “off the couch” action focused psychotherapy for children typically developing, as well as those who may have more unique physical and/or mental needs; helping every child achieve his or her best self.
