About Me

Robyn Sheiniuk has dedicated over 25 years to working with clients experiencing trauma and all the impact trauma causes. Trauma can leave you feeling depressed, numb, wanting to isolate, anxious, irritible, sad, feeling like you can't trust anyone or not wanting to engage in life. Traumas can be both big and small like a car accident, a sexual assualt, or repeated experiences from your childhood that left you feeling alone, like no one understood you, or feeling like you didn't belong in your family. Through the use of EMDR we'll help you re-process those traumas and less the intensity of the emotions attached to them. EMDR uses eye movements to help your brain reprocess trauma. jRobyn has seen tremendous success using EMDR with clients who have participated in traditional talk therapy without getting the relief they were looking for. In addition to EMDR, Robyn uses Psychodynamic therapy to help you understand how your past has created the person who you are now, and how your feelings and reactions are connected to your past so that you can create new responses to help you live a happier, more satisfying life. Robyn Sheiniuk has worked with a wide variety of clients ranging from children and adolescents to adults, couples and families. Robyn has served as a Supervisor to other therapists and a Director of a variety of mental health programs both in LA and NJ. She's been exclusively in Private Practice since 2015, and now sees her clients all over CA via telehealth.
