My name is Rich Robinson and I have been working with people toward their growth and well-being for 25 years. I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and I have a separate practice as an Alternative Healing Arts Practitioner.
I create a safe space for people to access and unpack their stories, see their patterns, heal their intense moments. I support people in releasing blocks, taking steps forward, and accessing greater freedom. If you are struggling, or want more from life, please call me. Let's talk about what you are looking for and if we can work together toward achieving it. I look forward to meeting you.

The premise of Life Center Therapy is that most issues and illnesses are symptoms of something that was too much to handle at the time. By processing unresolved experiences, we can be free of the symptoms they cause. Life Centered Therapy is designed to help people find the source of their issues, and process their unresolved material in a way that is intended to be safe and manageable. We use energetic testing aimed to direct us to what may be the root cause of issues. While it is not possible to provide and guarantees, I find this work elegant in its effectiveness and efficiency.
Please note: While Life Centered Therapy uses the word “therapy”, it is not to be construed that the Life Centered Therapy sessions offered Richard Robinson are the practice of psychotherapy or any other licensed health care service.

Life Centered Therapy 2016 - Present
I do Life Centered Therapy (LCT) because it is a tool designed to access and resolve distressing experiences at the source, the moment an event upset my client, in this life or in another life. I use energetic testing intended to get instructions from the person’s higher self, or soul. This can direct us to the most important thing for them to work on in that moment, their highest priority for well-being. I call it ‘emotional – spiritual surgery’. While it is not possible to provide any guarantees, it can be very efficient and effective.
Energetic Testing 2002 - Present
I have used energetic testing a guide when working with clients.
Somatic Psychotherapy Fall 1999 - Spring 2003
I completed a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling Psychotherapy, Somatic Concentration from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco. We studied how our bodies hold our emotions and patterns and the importance of including our bodies in our personal healing and growth.
Bodywork and Energy Work 1995 - 1999
I learned Thai Massage in Thailand in 1995. In 1996 I opened a Thai Massage private practice and taught Thai Massage. I also did reflexology, aromatherapy, and Reiki. I learned to feel dense energy locked in peoples’ bodies and facilitated people releasing old energy, blocking their vitality and causing dis-ease. This often included emotional catharsis of tears, laughter, memories, or visions. I worked at a premier Inn & Spa, doing multiple sessions daily in a gazebo overlooking a beautiful view.
I loved that job.
Psychotherapy Intern and Licensed Clinician 2003 - Present
I worked as a psychotherapy intern in middle schools and high schools. I worked with individual students, groups, and families. When I became a licensed Psychotherapist I transitioned to private practice, working with teens, adults, and couples.
