Robyn McGrath, M.Ed., LPC-S, RPT-S, RYT
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) and Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S) practicing in Central Austin.
My background includes over 18 years in public school system as a teacher and elementary school counselor. I started counseling children and adolescents in 2007 and have experience with a range of issues including; aggression, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, divorce, social skills, adoption, grief and loss as well as Selective Mutism, Aspergers, ADHD and the gifted child. .
I provide a safe and supportive environment in which children can navigate life transitions, discover new coping skills and manage strong emotions. Play is a child's natural language and I truly believe that a child's play can lead to greater self-awareness. Through the use of play therapy, sand tray, mindfulness and Solution Focused techniques, I help my clients explore ways to make lasting changes.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and two young children being outdoors, camping or riding bikes.
