Why Robin Gutman chose to be in the helping profession
I chose to enter the field of therapy because I find great fulfillment in helping clients enhance their sense of self-worth, establish healthy boundaries, and nurture positive relationships. Additionally, I have received specialized training in addressing intimate challenges within religious couples, recognizing the growing need in our times. My approach is rooted in compassion and empathy, and I aim to create a safe and supportive space for clients to explore and address sensitive issues, fostering growth and healing. Through evidence-based modalities, I empower clients to gain insight, develop coping skills, and create positive changes in their lives. My passion lies in guiding individuals and couples towards personal and relational growth, respecting and incorporating their unique backgrounds and beliefs.
Robin Gutman's approach
My approach to therapy is highly personalized, and I often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as the primary modality. However, I also integrate elements from other therapeutic approaches based on each individual's unique needs. As a trauma-trained clinician, I am equipped to address the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral challenges commonly associated with trauma. Many individuals may not be fully aware of the profound impact trauma can have on their lives, even in the present. Through my specialized training and expertise, I aim to empower clients to navigate and heal from past traumas, fostering positive change in their overall well-being and functioning.
What you can expect from sessions with Robin Gutman
In my therapeutic approach, I firmly believe in the strength and resilience of my clients. I see them as their own best resource, and therapy becomes most effective when they are open to self-reflection, acknowledging challenges, and embracing the potential for positive change. As a therapist, my role is to provide guidance, support, and a safe space for exploration and growth. Together, we work collaboratively to uncover and build upon existing strengths, empowering clients to navigate life's obstacles and embrace personal transformation. My aim is to create an environment where clients feel empowered and encouraged to take ownership of their journey toward healing and self-discovery.
