Robin Watts

I have been working as a clinical psychologist for 10 years. I have worked in a wide variety of settings and my specialty is health psychology and women’s health which includes working with children, teenagers, and adults with either acute or chronic medical conditions. Additionally, I have worked with clients in the LGBTQ community and have assisted clients who are struggling with identity and/or cultural issues. As for my style of therapy I do not believe a psychologist can be beneficial to others if they do not practice what they teach; therefore, I will never ask you to engage in behaviour changes or skills that I haven't practiced or wouldn't be willing to engage in myself. I believe humour is healing and will incorporate it whenever appropriate and applicable. Therapy is not a one size fits all approach and will therefore look different depending on the client; however, I generally use a variety of techniques that includes talk therapy with skills building. Clients have described me as "open, honest, non-judgmental, down to earth and easy to connect with." My specialties include:

  • Women's/Girls Health and Mental Health
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Coping with Cancer
  • Coping with Chronic Medical Conditions
  • Weight-Related Issues
  • Sexual Health in Women/Girls
  • Pregnancy and Post- Partum Complications and Loss
  • Pain management and Chronic Fatigue
  • Caregiver Support
  • Loss and Grief (human and animal companion)
  • Multi-cultural issues
  • LGBTQ support
  • Bullying
  • Stress
  • Immigration Stress
