Divya R. Robin, LMHC
I am diligent about understanding my client’s symptoms (anxieties, compulsions, drives) and how they interfere with their daily functioning. With that understanding, I create a collaborative environment to ensure that you take steps toward feeling “unstuck” by processing difficult emotions, providing evidence-based skills, and identifying your values. I tailor treatment to each individual and draw from various modalities with the goal to help my clients reduce symptoms of anxiety or depression, better understand themselves, sustain healthy coping skills, and improve their interpersonal relationships.
Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders:
Diagnoses I treat that often co-exist with OCD are depressive/mood disorders, anxiety disorders (generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias), and trauma/PTSD. I am trained in evidence-based treatments such as behavioral activation, STAIR-NST, and EMDR.
I completed a two-year training fellowship in cognitive behavioral therapies where I was trained from knowledge collected by experts at Columbia University and New York State Psychiatric Institute.
I have extensive training in evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma, and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
I attended Columbia University due to its clinical emphasis on multiculturalism. As a first-generation child of immigrants who identifies as South Asian, I know through clinical research and my lived experience that culture, identity, family dynamics, and societal oppression play a vast role in one’s mental health. Many of my clients are BIPOC, children of immigrants, or of a minoritized population.
I have extensive training in multiculturalism through my graduate studies at Columbia University in addition to participating in various research labs studying race, identity, and oppression. I am a continuous learner and I am always up-to-date on the latest clinical knowledge to provide my clients with effective and compassionate treatment.
