Robyn Mirassou, MA, MFT, LCMHC

Robyn Mirassou LCMHC, MFT, was born in California, raised in Oklahoma, and currently resides in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Robyn is a Marriage and Family therapist and AAMFT supervisor candidate. She received her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Campbell University and is currently attending Antioch University New England as a Doctoral Candidate for Marriage and Family Therapy. Her passions are, her faith, spending time with her family, music and helping others. Robyn’s dissertation work is in biofeedback in couple counseling and will soon be certified in biofeedback. Robyn is currently being trained in Gottman therapy and working toward certification.

Her experience includes working with at risk children at an alternative school, creating a position of therapy at a free clinic working alongside doctors, using a holistic approach to provide free services to those in need, working alongside a play therapist serving individuals and families ranging from 5 years old and up, and working at a marriage and family therapy clinic at Antioch University, serving couples, families, and individuals. Robyn’s life experiences and challenges have helped her to see the benefits and strength that come out of facing ones challenges and coming out as an overcomer, she believes that this has helped her to better understand her clients and help them walk through their journey of healing. Robyn’s goal as a clinician is to give the unconditional support her clients need to see their own strength to get through their current struggles, and to help the clients become emotionally healthier and happier in who they are and who they want to be, both individually and systemically. Robyn takes a collaborative approach in working with clients as she knows that, though we are the experts of therapy, the clients are the experts of their own lives and their own families. She believes that bringing the two expertise together, can create an environment for exploration and growth in a way that will encourage the change the clients are looking for.
