As Seen On & In
Thank you for all of your help these last 6 months. Life changing.
I am a survivor of childhood abuse and trauma, and had attempted therapy (varying modalities) several times throughout my life with disappointing or frustrating results. Measurable understanding and healing didn’t begin to occur until my work with Dr. Buckley. She offers a unique approach, combining therapeutic analysis and insight with patient guidance and practical, action-oriented coaching. The work we do in the room together and the “ah ha” moments are reinforced throughout the week by “home work” and engaging reminders/insights shared via her IG account. I never feel pushed or judged, yet I am motivated to practice. Dr. Buckley is self-possessed and highly intelligent, and communicates her understanding of/empathy with the unique challenges women face in a manner that feels present, connected l, and invested while maintaining absolute professionalism. She is an extraordinarily gifted practitioner, and I’m deeply grateful to be working with her.
Thank you for all the help in getting to this point. When I started with you, I never would have imagined feeling strong and confident in any way as I am beginning to now.
Our relationship was falling a bit off track. After the adoption of our daughter, we noticed that issues kept coming up between us. It seemed that after 10 years of dating and marriage, the old ways we were interacting weren't working now that we had more responsibilities in our life. We reached out to Dr. Robin after hearing about her work with some friends and the fact that she worked with gay couples. We didn't feel comfortable with "couples therapy" but we wanted to make sure to get support before things got us to the point of needing theapy. Dr. Robin's no nonsense approach kept us on task with homework while still letting us guide the direction of the coaching. We felt like each session led us closer to our relationship goals and in the end, we had a blueprint of how to oversee and direct our marriage in the future. Thanks, Robin!
Dr. Robin's approach is direct and all business. As we were taking steps to get married, we knew we didn't want to repeat the past mistakes from our earlier marriages. We also didn't want to do couples therapy because we didn't have issues between us, but we were looking for a way to make our marriage work better than our past experiences. We picked Dr. Robin because we had heard about her business approach to relationships and since both of us work in business (finance and marketing), we decided to try it. We cannot stress enough how amazing her approach is! There was no "deep dive" into our pasts. We focused on where we were and where we wanted to get to. We applied solid frameworks to our relationship, putting it into practical and tactical terms. We noticed improvements in our communication almost immediately and routinely use the plan we created with Dr. Robin in our relationship.
Dr. Robin has an excellent grasp of how to open conversations and pull on threads that help unravel thoughts and pathways to better understanding. She has helped me with my control, my relationships with other women and my husband. During a particularly difficult time recently, she was able to help me decide some next steps with a special friend. I love that she is engaging and kind but very knowledgeable and straightforward in her sessions.
Dr. Robin helped get me back on track. After losing my job, I felt demoralized. I kept wondering why didn't they "like me" and how could I expect to find another job in my 50s. My sessions with Dr. Robin first helped me attack the thoughts that were creating the self-defeating emotions and not allowing me to think clearly about my situation. Once I adopted the strategies she taught me, I was then able to define what I wanted in my next career move. I felt empowered, like I could select the right organization which matched my values and interests, rather than needing to take whatever job I might be offered. After only four months of coaching, I was back to job searching and after only three different organizational interviews, I was offered my dream job, earning double what I had been at my original workplace. I honestly don't think I could've done this, especially in such a short period of time, without Dr. Robin.
I was worried about my daughter and felt helpless. She finally agreed to meet with Dr. Robin after having a panic attack. Knowing she was about to go off to college, she finally understood she needed to address her stress. She had been to therapy before but had never connected with a therapist. She quickly and naturally connected with Dr. Robin through coaching and started to open up to her immediately. I could just see this huge sense of relief come over her after the first session. After a couple of more sessions, I saw a complete 360 with her. She lifted out of her depression and she started talking to me. It’s as if she now had the tools to be able to express herself and feel confident in what she had to say. She put the sessions to use and did the work to help herself. She values Dr. Robin’s advice, respects her as an expert and opens herself up to accepting guidance. She is now a happier young woman, much more confident, more expressive and more motivated. I am not worried about her anymore and as a mother, that is the greatest feeling I could have. I am so happy we got her in with Dr. Robin, it has been life changing.
