Psychotherapy and Consulting
What is Divergent Worlds? I created my practice to create a space where you can come and be yourself, find yourself, and become yourself. Divergent Worlds recognizes that we all need a space to be real, even and especially as we are exploring what that might mean. Through therapy for clients, supervision for licensed and pre-licensed associates, and consultation with and for other therapists, we all at Divergent Worlds envision facilitating each person in finding, connecting with, and asserting their personal and professional identities, values, and selves.
Weirdos are welcome!
Not a weirdo? We welcome everybody, and create space for authentic expression in all forms. Nobody is too weird, or not weird enough.

Rachel Robbins, Psy.D.
Supportive, Non-Judgmental Psychotherapy for Adults, Young Adults, and Relationships
My philosophy is that every person is capable of living a fulfilling life, and of creating and meeting their goals. Every person is unique and different and has a place in our world, and in therapy we can work together to support your trajectory, or help you find it and get there. Psychotherapy can help people to strengthen their relationships with themselves and others, develop natural strengths, and shift responses to stress and challenge.
Sometimes, factors such as health, troubling events, history of trauma, oppression, environment, inequity, life transitions, stresses, and losses can create barriers that make both large and small situations more difficult. You might struggle to set limits, hesitate to assert your wants and needs, or question whether you know what you want in the first place. With assistance and attention, emotional, relationship, situational, and environmental influences can be navigated as you connect to yourself and others, and create and achieve your goals.
Specific experiences that I can help with include improving relationships, exploring and supporting gender/relationship/sexuality/sub-culture expression and diversity, depression and anxiety, empowerment, resolving trauma, self-improvement, worth, and organization.
I welcome people from a broad range of backgrounds and lived experiences, and strive to acknowledge intersectionality around race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status, ability, size, culture, alternative cultures, sexuality, gender, age, politics, and other identities and outlets for expression.
Meet Divergent Worlds!
Welcome to my updated practice, Divergent Worlds Psychotherapy and Consulting. This new new website and practice is still the same people, with the same therapy styles and values. The new name and website are here to further describe our vision in connecting with and supporting clients, colleagues, and community.
I am conducting all sessions and evaluations using telehealth in order to protect my communities and myself from the COVID19 virus. I will return to meeting face to face when it is safe and possible for us all to do so. My style and therapy remain the same, and if you have any questions about this process, please reach out and ask.
New Client Scheduling:
I am open to meeting with new people, couples, and multi-partner relationships to start therapy. However, my schedule is very full. I will do my best to accommodate your scheduling needs or refer you to other therapists who might be a great fit for you.
Have a question about how or if I can help? Contact me for more information on how we might work together. Every person is unique, and I might be able to help even if my specialties do not seem to fit your experiences. I am happy to talk with you about your individual needs and situation to help you determine if my services are a good match for your needs.
