Robyn Holmes-Cannon, LMFT – Marriage and Family Therapist

I am a private practice licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in the state of California and have been proving psychotherapy and play therapy since 2001. I offer telehealth therapy that enables clients to engage in therapy from the privacy and comfort of their own home. I have adapted several approaches to telehealth, including EMDR, EFT, The Flash Technique, and Somatic-body based approaches with excellent outcomes in the treatment process.

Treatment Approach

field path with over 22 years of experience as a psychotherapist, I have learned that ‘one size does not fit all’ and thus will work with you using a variety of approaches to address your unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of person-centered therapy combined with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), mindfulness and the acquisition of other coping tools to manage symptoms better. I have extensive training in therapies that focus on anxiety disorders, trauma, panic attacks, and disorders common in childhood with a basis in anxiety or fears/nightmares and attachment wounds.

Self-compassion and mindfulness-based practices are approaches that studies have shown to be highly effective in resolving trauma and anxiety-based difficulties. The research reveals that individuals who practice these techniques are more resilient, feel more grounded in their bodies/emotions, and are better equipped to do the therapeutic work needed to heal from painful experiences of the past. I am passionate about helping my clients overcome what’s blocking them by infusing mindfulness skills and other effective coping tools into the therapy process to help them heal and reach their fullest potential.
