LPC or Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
I believe that having an encouraging, supportive and therapeutic relationship between the client and counselor lay the foundation for success. I remain current with evidenced-based practices, through ongoing training, seminars and workshops. My focus is to collaborate with you on creating your personal goals based on your strengths, needs and preferences.
Toynetta Robinson is a LCSWA(Licensed clinical social worker associate) with a Masters Degree in Social work from NCCU, with an emphasis in children, adolescents and adults. I believe change can happen and people can thrive when given the support they need to assist them in identifying their own strengths and recognizing their potential to live fulfilling lives. With more than 15 years of experience working with individuals and families, I have provided an environment of compassion. I’ve worked with children, adolescents and adults with anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger management and PTSD. My therapeutic approach is to evaluate each individual within their environment, provide supportive and practical feedback in order to help them effectively address personal life challenges.
I am a firm believer that our thoughts influence our behavior. So if you’re thinking faulty, so are your behavioral actions. These thought patterns can become so automatic that we don’t recognize when our judgement is irrational. I am genuine, empathetic, unbiased, supportive and I provide objective nonjudgmental guidance. I can be very courageous, vulnerable and transparent when needed. I take the same risks sharing that I expect from my clients I serve.
