Robin CollinsMSc, RCC

Clinical Counsellor and Associate

Robin Collins married her lifelong love of horses and her interest in psychology and counselling with a masters of science in clinical counselling from Prescott College in Prescott, AZ and has been supporting clients with a specialized team of horses since 2017. She is certified as an Equine Facilitated Wellness Professional (EFW) and has trained with Dr. Bruce Perry’s Child Trauma Academy, learning the Neurosequential Model of therapeutics.

She found support and sanctuary with horses when facing adversity in her life; they nourished her heart and spirit with non-judgmental acceptance and positive regard. Horses taught Robin the intricacies of relationships and how delicate the balance is between respect, trust, communication, and boundaries.

Robin brings her love for the outdoors to her work with clients. She sees clients in our offices, with her horses near Cherry Creek, and along some of the hiking trails in the area. Robin is an advocate for experiential learning and uses Observed Experiential Integration (OEI) to complement her approach with clients. Robin works mainly with youth and teenagers, and some adults; a lot of her work is tailored to young peoples. Robin is Indigenous and a member of Tkʼemlúps te Secwépemc but was not raised in community. She continues to explore this cultural relationship.

In her spare time, Robin is a barrel racer and spends a lot of time outside and with (and on!)  her horses. She spends several months each year supporting a family intensive program in the Yukon.
