A Satisfied Couple
“The time my partner and I have invested in working with Robyn to improve communication between us has been more worthwhile than we could have imagined. Robyn works on us talking to each other directly and with compassion and civility. Her ability to treat each individual with respect and not to pass judgment ensures her clients are comfortable and transforms the time with her into a workshop that imparts important tools for navigating conflicts. She provides suggestions that are easy to implement and that are specific to the couple’s issues in order to improve relationships. When she feels she is not suited to address issues not in her area, she will openly acknowledge it and direct to you contacts better suited to the task. Robyn’s professionalism, thoroughness, insights, suggestions, and techniques are outstanding and we are fortunate to have her guidance. Thank you Robyn! We are beyond grateful for your help.”

“Healthy Communication has been very instrumental and beneficial to the clients here in the sense that they have learned the tools to make amends to their family and friends through role play, improved ways to relate, and a vocabulary to explore their needs. Through awareness and behavioral changes, they now know how to compliment someone and receive the gift of appreciation.”
Director, Baltimore Energy Challenge, Civic Works
“Healthy Communication training workshops have been a true asset to the health of my team. This training improved the culture and morale of my organization like never before. You can feel the difference in the atmosphere. Team members are happier, and working well together and the work performance has improved across the board. We went from getting things done by the skin on our teeth, to easing our way into wins with the collaboration of the entire team … My employees had nothing but great things to say about the experience and were eager to have them come back for more training.”
A grateful client
“Just a quick note to thank you for the amazing results I’ve had so far from just two sessions with you. Thanks to your encouragement and the great writing, drawing, and visualisations you had me do, I’m getting somewhere with key goals. Which I am VERY surprised by as I have been stuck on them for a long, long time.”
A friend in need
I was recently confronted by a difficult situation and I am so grateful to Robyn for helping me find the words & feelings and the best way to navigate successfully through it. I didn’t know how to communicate to a friend without sounding accusatory or hurting her feelings. I realized that it felt like I was rejecting her, and I didn’t want to open that potential door of misunderstanding through miscommunication. I’d been turning down my friend’s offers to come hang out for days, dreading the talk I needed to have, not knowing how to say what I needed to. When I coached with Robyn about it, she listened and offered some nonviolent communication tools I was missing. She instilled in me the confidence to have a talk with my friend in a compassionate, open, and respectful way. I called my friend the very next day and was relieved to find that she understood my position. Our conversation was one of warmth and concern, thanks to Robyn’s guidance. Her help saved a situation that could’ve easily caused a strained friendship.

“Hi, I just wanted to share I was driving the other day, reflecting on 2021 and thinking how much has happened and shifted and opened. And I want to thank you for really helping me through a huge transition in my life. I really appreciate you and am so grateful you agreed to coach me!! You were a huge support. You helped me visualize and contact my inner sage and also name the saboteur who thankfully doesn’t feel as strong now as it once was. You also inspired me to take the coaching class! And I had a serious breakthrough moment about 2 months ago where I experienced what empowerment feels like in my body- I was triggered and emotional but I ended up coaching myself through the whole experience…exploring the feeling, what it reminded me of, etc etc and by the end recognizing my growth and making a life-serving choice.
Thank you thank you thank you “

“I came to coaching with Robyn feeling “stuck” in my habitual ways of doing things. Robyn provided insights on my approach to life, work, and communication based not only on what I said, but also on how I said it. This fresh perspective has provided both direction and motivation for making positive changes in my life.“

“As a trained therapist and having received therapy myself I wasn’t sure how coaching would compare. My experience with Robyn completely surpassed my expectations: Robyn attuned to the root of what I was struggling with in a highly experiential and holistic way. Her pacing and manner put me at ease immediately. Next, she began to slowly offer directions that had me relate to the original struggle in a new way. Her style was seamless, nuanced and effective. One of my favorite parts when she had us “land the plane” at the end of our time, eliciting from me one practical step to carry the awareness I built in our session into my life. I highly recommend her as a coach.“
Professional, Experienced Coach
Robyn is a very professional, experienced coach with extensive communications background. I have worked with Robyn over the past few months to develop my leadership skills, and she provides the perfect space for me to reflect on my goals and the progress I have accomplished. She also shares experiences so I can relate better. Her sympathy and her warm personality make them easier for me to open up and share my struggles in a safe environment. I look forward to continuing working with her!
