Coping Skills

Dr. Robin Wachs
Psychologist, PsyD
Welcome! It’s a big step to acknowledge that one could use some help. Whether you’re suffering from depression, anxiety, irritability or some other version of unhappiness or interpersonal conflict, you’ve already taken an important step, by seeking help. Even if you struggle with significant health issues or other difficult life circumstances, you have within you all that you need for greater fulfillment, joy, and empowerment. I will help you gain the understanding, new perspectives and tools you need to harness your own strength! In the process, you will likely feel greater clarity and a whole lot better!

I am a warm, seasoned, excellently-trained psychologist. I help individuals who are feeling unhappy in their lives, with themselves or with their relationships. My specialty area is helping people cope with chronic illness. I virtually always have a few clients with these challenges, while the majority of my clients struggle with other issues.
As a Professional Member of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), I have developed expertise in helping others cope with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and subsequently, with other chronic illnesses (eg. Cancer; Diabetes, …). I’ve seen how pain can initiate growth, and ultimately, strength. This belief guides my practice and optimism.

Marriage and Family Therapist
With almost twenty years experience in El Paso and Teller counties working with individuals, families and groups, I believe that difficulties often bring us to a place of change. Change comes with an assortment of feelings: relief, fear, sometimes both. My personal background is rich in diversity and experience. With unconditional acceptance and compassion for my clients, I am known for my work with a variety of people. We identify the problem and then focus on solutions together. I am a licensed family therapist with level III certification in addictions counseling and experience working with individuals and groups as well.

We are impacted by our family histories and, as we understand this, we can make new choices. I’ll help you look at addictive behavior patterns, family systems, abuse history, foster family experiences, grief/loss/healing, and personal growth challenges. I also do group therapy work with adolescents, adults and seniors.

Feel free to call with questions and discuss what you are looking for in therapy. Together we can de-escalate a crisis, develop goals or process an experience. If you are interested in my approach to addictions, I believe in the 12-Step model. Nevertheless I do respect alternative recovery paths.

PhD, LPsych
I work with adults affected by various mental health conditions, including, but not limited to, depression, generalized and social anxiety, panic, sleep disorders, and post-traumatic stress. I am also interested in helping individuals process unresolved grief due to family of origin issues. My areas of specialization include the treatment of eating disorders within an adult population and treating adult survivors of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. I have extensive research and clinical training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and continue to build on these experiences by working with couples suffering from relationship distress.

My clinical approach is strongly rooted in attachment theory. This orientation provides me with an understanding of clients’ emotional needs, how they cope with these needs alone and within their closest relationships. I use techniques from a variety of different evidence-based therapeutic approaches to address client concerns.
My past academic research in psychotherapy guides my assessment of how clients progress through therapy. I engage in regular consultations with other eating disorder professionals, and I am an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Psychology at Mount Allison University.

Welcome! Are you looking for new and effective ways to cope with anxiety/worry? Trying to bounce back from a depression or past trauma? I will support you to discover your strengths and help you make the changes you need to get on the road to feeling whole. You are the expert on your situation, meaning YOU hold a solution to the challenges you face. That doesn’t mean it is easy, you might feel so overwhelmed that you can’t see any way to improve or escape your difficult situation. This is where counselling can help.

Considering the first steps towards making lasting changes takes courage, especially if you’re not one to ask for help. It can get easier. I am an experienced counsellor who can help you identify and work through your challenges, allowing you to become a stronger and more confident person.
I am currently accepting new clients and offer both daytime and evening appointments. I also conduct telephone sessions if you live outside the city or have trouble getting to my office regularly. Extended health benefit plans often cover the fees of Registered Social Workers. Connect with me today and take the first step.
