Robyn Callahan, MSW, LICSW

Robyn is a compassionate therapist and research-informed psycho-educator.  For over a decade, she has been  helping patients attain a sense a well-being and make meaningful life changes, by blending Western psychology and neuroscience along with Eastern practices in her clinical practice.

 

As an experienced psychotherapist, Robyn is skilled at creating a safe space in which patients feel comfortable sharing their story, process difficult emotions, feel heard, and can begin to heal. Robyn feels that it is a privilege to get to know her patients, their stories, and participate in their mental healthcare.

Out of the office, Robyn enjoys travel adventures, exploring new countries and learning about different cultures; playing in and on the water; staying active with her two Boston Terriers, Eddie and Duke; and spending time with family.

EXPERIENCE

Robyn is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with over fourteen years of clinical and professional experience working in outpatient and inpatient medical settings, non-profit organizations, and in large corporate settings.  She is trained in a wide range of evidenced-based therapeutic modalities and believes that the therapeutic process is organic, dynamic, and collaborative. 

 

In addition to her clinical practice, Robyn has Clinical and Academic Appointments at the University of Washington, School of Social Work where she is an active faculty member.  She is a member of the National Association of Social Workers and Washington State Society for Clinical Social Work.

Eddie

Eddie has worked by Robyn's side as an incredible Therapy Dog for 13 years.  In August 2018, he retired after sharing his love with more than 1,000 patients! 

 

Over the years, he built healing relationships with foster kids, made home visits to play with kiddos with cancer, shared his comforting presence with many at the end of life, and brought smiles to those in the helping professions.

In addition, he attended both undergraduate and graduate school - He is one smart pup!

He is happily enjoying retirement in his backyard and periodically stops by the office to say "hi."

Duke

Duke is sure to make you smile, even on the darkest of days -

He loves to play and show you just how much he loves you!   

Duke started working with Robyn following Eddie's retirement, and has provided patient's diagnosed with

life-limiting illnesses and their families lots of love and cuddles.

Duke looks forward to meeting you!
