Serving Mukilteo, Everett, Whidbey Island, and the North Puget Sound

It's okay to realize that life has a mysterious quality to it, it has an element of uncertainty, it's okay to realize that we do need help, that calling out for help is a very generous act because it allows others to help us and it allows us to be helped. Sometimes we're calling out for help. Sometimes we're offering help, and then this hostile world becomes a very different place. ~ Rebecca Solnit
I am Robin Barre. Welcome to The Shiftless Wanderer: Tools For the Journey.
I am a depth psychotherapist serving Island and Snohomish Counties and north King County. I offer services to children and adolescents ages 12 and up, adults, couples, and families. My experience ranges from working with issues that run the gamut from mild to severe: from minor relationship issues to lifelong symptoms of complex trauma; from mild depression to debilitating anxiety; from unsatisfactory couple's communication to high conflict families and parent alienation. My work is grounded in those psychologies that honor the movements of Soul, or the Self. You and I will work together to explore and compassionately address your circumstances and symptoms. I facilitate the process of accessing and gathering resources needed for healing.
I believe that healing and wholeness come from the sometimes difficult work of just being with ourselves ~ in all of our amazing, wondrous, and shadowy being. I will be a compassionate witness, facilitator, and guide on the journey as you learn to tap into your own deep well of courage and self-compassion. Eventually, along the way, you will find your unique Ground of Being from which life and hope bloom.
