Rhiannon Tobin, MA LMFT
Hello, my name is Rhiannon Tobin and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). I have been providing therapy for over ten years, primarily working with children, adolescents, and families. I specialize in helping children, teens, and young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and ADHD as well as assisting parents with skills to help their children thrive emotionally, academically, and socially. My passion is to help all ages learn effective coping strategies to manage challenges related to attention limits, anxiety, depression, and anger/aggression. Another strong focus of my practice is with couples and the various types of relationships we have in our lives. Here, learning and mastering positive and effective communication and problem-solving skills is key to creating supportive partnerships and increasing our quality of life.
Originally from the East Coast, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a Minor in Studio Art from Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. I then obtained my Master’s degree in Marital and Family Therapy with a concentration in Art Therapy from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California. With a specialty in art therapy, I frequently utilize art interventions to further assist the process of therapy by allowing us to more freely access underlying themes in our lives that may motivate or hinder us towards reaching our goals. In addition to art therapy, I utilize interventions from cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, family systems theory, and mindfulness. These approaches support the processes of increasing awareness of our thoughts and behaviors, developing more effective strategies/skills to make changes and reach personal goals, and ultimately lead to a sense of feeling more balanced and satisfied with our lives.
I believe that in order for the therapeutic process to be successful, we will focus on your strengths and you being the “expert” in your life. As a facilitator of growth and awareness, I look forward to helping you
