Monica Robinson (she/her), MSW, LCSW

We all ache to be more, live more, love and be better loved.  In order to fulfill this innate destiny, we may slog through the mud as often as dance in the light.  In dark times and in dark places, I listen for the gold not claimed and the dreams not dared.  Embracing curiosity, compassion and courage, together we will convert fear, hurt and anger into forces that promote life’s imagined and unimagined possibilities.

As a relational therapist engaged in private practice, clinical consultation and as a leader of women’s personal growth workshops offered by Woman Within International, Monica Robinson (she/her), LCSW, is known for her all-embracing compassion that values all aspects of oneself.
