Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Dr. Robbins is the Emergency Room Marital Therapist. What does that mean? Dr. Robbins specializes in bringing couples back from the brink of divorce. The type of therapy needed for those who are seriously considering divorce is very different from your typical marital therapy. It's direct. It's concise. It's active. Having worked with couples for over 30 years, he is well versed with the challenges of changing the course of a wayward marriage. Often, finances are a part of the problem, if not at the core of the problem. In fact, poor financial management has been deemed as the number one cause of divorce by many divorce studies. As a financial advisor, he brings his expertise to these challenges as well. Often, Dr. Robbins is the person couples go to when "all other things have failed." In addition, Dr. Robbins specializes in working with parents of out-of-control children and teens. When parents are bombarded with conflicting advice about how to deal with defiant kids, Dr. Robbins cuts through with tried and effective tools to bring peace to your home. He also enjoys helping those struggling with depression, anxiety, panic attacks and phobias. Being in business for the past 30 years, the owner of five businesses, a licensed mortgage broker, and trained in financial planning, Dr. Robbins brings a full perspective to the challenges that business owners are faced with. From balancing family and business success, employee challenges, family owned business challenges, and a host of other issues that owners are faced with, Dr. Robbins brings clinical and practical experience to your challenges.

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
