Robin's Approach to Helping

Robin Wand, PsyD. is a licensed clinical psychologist and has a strong profession history in working with adults in a variety of health care and mental health settings. Dr. Wand served as a clinical social worker in the Honolulu Veterans’ Outpatient Clinic for over a decade. She has worked as a registered occupational therapist in three day programs for persons challenged by persistent mental illness chronic medical conditions, and lower socioeconomic status. Dr. Wand has taught graduate students at Samuel Merritt University and extensively supervised these professions within their field work experience.

Throughout her career, Dr. Wand has formed a collaborative relationship with her clients in the rediscovery of their inner resources. Dr. Wand and her clients evaluate these assets to take steps towards mutually defined treatment goals. Dr. Wand believes change is possible. Through transitions, loss, old wounds, and current anxieties, Dr. Wand believes there is wisdom that emerges within the process. The contemplative exercise often provides insight as to the bewildering partnership between thoughts, emotion and behavior that stand in the way of satisfying work, school or interpersonal relationships.

“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploration will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”

Therapy Groups

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that aims to help people manage mental health conditions or cope with negative experiences and behaviors. One of the goals of group therapy is to bring people who share similar experiences together. 

Meeting other people recovering from or working through similar issues helps people realize that they are not alone. Group members and therapists can help each other by sharing information and offering advice. Group members can support, reassure, and help each other improve throughout the treatment. Below is the group Robin leads.
