“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
Robin Helget is a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker (LSCSW) and a Certified Play Therapist (CPT). She graduated from the University of Kansas, with a specialized focus in child and family therapy, and Certificate of Play Therapy from Mid-America Nazarene University.
Robin specializes in working with young adults (20 and 30-somethings/millennials) who are experiencing depression, anxiety, lack of fulfillment, difficulty "keeping afloat" in day-to-day tasks, self-sabotage, perfectionism and procrastination, loss of motivation, and/or low self-esteem. Because anxiety is one of the most common problems young people are struggling with and is at an all-time high, Robin utilizes Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in combination with techniques like Motivational Interviewing and Sand Tray Therapy to learn skills to effectively manage negative thoughts, change your mindset, create and maintain boundaries, and become an effective and assertive communicator.
In a world where everyone is telling young people what they need to do or have in order to be happy, you will work together with Robin to identify goals, define fulfillment in all areas of your life, and create attainable and measurable goals to become fulfilled.
In addition to working with Millennials, Robin works with children ages 0-6 on anxiety, specific phobias, and low self-esteem. Her specialty lies with those children who have attachment difficulties or have experienced in-utero trauma, difficult birth experience, or pre-verbal trauma including abuse or neglect.
If you see Robin, you'll see "Still I Rise" on her forearm as a reminder that we may not be able to control what life hands us all the time, but that we CAN control how we respond, how we take care of ourselves, and the compassion we show ourselves in the midst of struggle. In her personal life, Robin enjoys writing, practicing creativity through art, playing volleyball with friends during the week, and snuggling up to her boxer, Meeko.
