Families and individuals affected by adoption may require support from a therapist who is familiar with the unique challenges that adoptive families may face.  Robyn has had the experience in working with countless families in both inpatient and outpatient settings who have been coping with feelings relating to their adoption.  She has also been able to provide support and feedback to adoptive parents as well as women who are considering placing a child for adoption.

Ms. DeRespinis has attended a number of conferences focused on addressing and identifying possible concerns relating to adoption. To add to her clinical knowledge, she is also in the process of completing the Certificate Program in Adoption from Rutgers University.  It is her exceptional clinical training combined with her own personal connection with adoption (as Robyn is an adoptee herself), that allows her to help her clients and their families in the best possible way.
