Robin Howard


Robin received her bachelor’s in business administration, with a minor in Economics and Sociology from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas and an MA in Counseling from Amberton University, Dallas, TX. Robin and her husband David have 2 adult children. After a career in marketing/sales and the challenges of raising well-balanced children, Robin felt led to pursue a master’s in counseling. Her journey has been one of self-discovery, receiving grace and healing from her own performance-based acceptance, insecurity, and codependency. Robin has worked in many volunteer, philanthropic and spiritual organizations and has been mentoring youth and adults throughout her life. Areas of service have been Junior League of Dallas, Voice of Hope, Mercy Street, Readers to Leaders, ALARM, and Village Ministries International, and involvement in para-church and local church ministries.

Robin believes we are created by a good and loving God to have meaning and purpose in life. She believes all lives are sacred and everyone has an innate need for love, security, and significance. We also can choose and sometimes our choices can be made from a faulty belief system that has been reinforced by life’s circumstances, experiences and genetics which can affect one’s view of God, self, others, and their world. Robin’s goal is to provide a safe and empathetic environment to help her clients move towards healing and growth. Robin works collaboratively with clients to develop new and healthier ways of coping with life’s challenges and difficulties. Robin enjoys working with young adults, adults and couples who are navigating through life transitions, trauma, anxiety, depression, codependency, grief, parenting, divorce, and faith. Robin is also trained in using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for treating Trauma.

When she’s not meeting with clients, Robin enjoys being active cycling, running, and hiking and enjoys reading. Currently, she is a volunteer advocate for Thrive Women’s clinic and active in her local church.

• Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
