As a licensed mental health counselor, Robin has been in practice for over 15 years with a specialty in reproductive issues, including infertility, high-risk pregnancy, traumatic birth, postpartum depression and anxiety, perinatal hospice and palliative care, pregnancy loss, infant loss, adoption, and abortion.
She received her B.A. in Philosophy and B.S. in Psychology from Middle Tennessee State University. While growing her family, Robin completed her M.A. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University and obtained licensure in the state of Indiana.
Robin’s personal experiences with sexual assault, pregnancy, high-risk pregnancy, NICU, miscarriage, and abortion formed her passion for walking alongside women, men, and families experiencing complications during reproductive journeys. Robin opened her private practice in 2015 and began speaking on topics related to mental health and reproduction including perinatal hospice and palliative care, mental health complications after abortion, and post-abortive healing. Robin completed a post-abortion healing retreat by Deeper Still in 2019 to further her own healing from abortion.
Robin has testified before a state legislature regarding sexual assault, pregnancy, reproductive loss, mental health, and abortion. She has also provided education to both state and federal congressional members regarding these topics.
