ABOUT DESIRÉE N. ROBINSON

Desirée is a Certified Sexologist & Integrative Practitioner with advanced training in Substance Abuse Assessment and Treatment, Intimacy / Sex Therapy, Discernment Counseling, Hatha & Tantric Yoga, Hypnotherapy, and HypnoCoaching. In addition to her training, Desirée also specializes in working with ethnic, religious, and spiritual individuals currently working towards developing or strengthening their practice and enhancing their sense of self.

This is not your everyday therapist! Be prepared to sit, chat and work towards getting what you want out of life. In session, this is your valuable space to access Desirée's time and expertise; however, the safety and care provided are priceless.

I am very clear - I am a facilitator supporting people on their journey towards healing, connection and compassion for all.

Every session starts with "How can I best support you today" and from that second on, we are actively putting you into the drivers seat of your life experience.

My goal is to equip you with the insight to live the life that you desire, as opposed to through your filter of survival. I come from a diverse background that incorporates ego state therapy/IFS/Parts Techniques, archetypal, solution-focused, experiential/creative, psychodynamic and transpersonal therapies. Some people will feel more comfortable chatting; while others may find insight with creative/expressive activities.

As our therapeutic relationship grows, you'll see that I am invested in supporting you to unearth the truth of who you desire to be as opposed to; perhaps, who you've been told you "should" be.

In service to that, I am direct, metaphorical, and informative - in the most respectful and compassionate ways possible.

Whether we are talking, breathing, moving, or using art therapeutically - every time you will be able to walk away with new insights, tools, or skills to apply to your life.
