ROBIN CRAWFORD, LMHC
Robin uses Psychoeducation as a simple approach to teach family members problem-solving and communication skills to support prevention of future episodes. She believes in using many tools to help people reach their goals, i.e., CBT, TF-CBT, Mindfulness techniques, motivational interviewing, and other holistic techniques, to help individuals become what they want to become.
