A Bit About Me

My name is Dr. Gayle Robbins. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and received my Doctorate in Psychology from the University of North Dakota. I first became licensed as a Psychologist and Mental Health Counselor in Washington State in 2000. In 2004, I moved to Georgia where I have lived and worked as a Licensed Psychologist. Prior to obtaining my Ph.D. I worked in a number of different settings providing counseling and other psychological and educational services.

My Approach

As a Psychologist, I acquired skills necessary to conduct therapy, consultation, assessment, and educational programs. However, helping people is more than an accumulation of skills. Treatment and successful interventions rest on a collaborative relationship between the provider and the client. I believe psychotherapy is a shared process of emotional healing and skill development. Throughout this partnership I strive to make myself obsolete as soon as possible by empowering those I work with to learn effective ways to lead a meaningful and fulfilled life.

I also offer formal Psychological Assessment, Consultation, and Educational Programming.

Modes of psychotherapy include individual and couple’s counseling as well as group therapy. At times I work with a co-therapist to better facilitate treatment and support. 

​​​​I work with individuals having a variety of concerns including:

  • Mood difficulties such asdepression and anxiety

  • Problems with relationships  

  • Adjustment to life challenges including medical problems, career uncertainty, and other life changes

  • Grief and loss

  • Identity development 

  • LGBTQ issues

  • Emotional regulation 

  • Abuse, trauma and stress
