about Robin

Robin Salmon, MA

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)


In life, many of us encounter the challenges of change, loss, grief, trauma, sadness, fear, and finding meaning, purpose and direction in life.  If you’re in the process of these type of experiences, you’ve come to the right place.  No matter what you are facing right now, I want you to know that you are not alone, and you do not have to process this alone.  We’re in this together.


As a young, queer person with my own history of mental health, I’m no stranger to many of these challenges.  Although these can be painful and difficult processes to go through, they can also be seen as opportunities for learning, growing, and healing.  In fact, it is through these challenges that led me to my healing journey and ultimately to becoming a therapist. 


You are like a phoenix, or a lotus flower, or like Kintsugi pottery.  As you know, the phoenix rises from its ashes.  The lotus flower blooms from the deepest and thickest mud.  And if you don’t know, Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with golden lacquer, showcasing the breakage and repair as part of the history of the object, rather than something to hide or disguise.  This art form also strengthens the object and makes it more valuable.  These are beautiful examples that demonstrate how through the times that make us feel broken, we will come out stronger.  We have the capacity to transform.

Robin's approach

I provide virtual therapy to people living in Ontario; and I mostly work with young adolescents and young adults, including folks who are LGBTQA+ and/or neurodiverse.   


There is power in expressing and exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a space where you can feel heard, seen, and understood.  I am passionate about creating this type of space and supporting you through a person-centred approach.  This means I honour you as the expert of your own life and based on what I learn about you, we may incorporate aspects of various other therapeutic approaches depending on your needs and preferences.  Examples of other approaches I might draw from include Humanism, Existentialism, Compassion-Focused, Strength-Based, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.  Additionally, I believe in the healing potential in the body, breath, movement, play, rest, nature, spending time with children, and spending time with animals.  


Together, we can explore and uncover your road forward.
