Robin Finley, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

I continue to feel privileged when individuals, couples, and families allow me to assist them in meeting their personal goals. After recognizing the need for additional support, many feel vulnerable and even overwhelmed in taking that first step. From our first session, I thrive to assure that each client feels comfortable and safe within a confidential setting to openly explore their experiences and emotions. I am committed to serving each client with compassion and empathy. I am a strength-based clinician who believes in working collaboratively with you to identify your goals and achieve your desired success.

I recognize that there is no one method or model of therapy that fits everyone; thus I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy based on my clients’ needs. I often apply techniques from Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing counseling method.

In 2004, I received my Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from The University of South Carolina-Upstate. I obtained my Educational Specialist Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Converse College in 2007. Throughout the years, I have had the opportunity to practice in a variety of settings consisting of outpatient and residential settings as well as non-profit organizations and private practice.

Krista W. Martin, LISW-CP

Philosophy of Care

Are you looking to live your best, most authentic life?  Are you seeking a version of you that understands your values and strives to live them out daily?  Are you looking for a safe space to explore what you value, work through past experiences, or develop coping skills to become that person you hope to be?

I work with individuals, couples, and families through a multitude of therapeutic perspectives including Animal Assisted Therapy to help define what your personal “best life” looks like and develop a plan to get there.  I hold space for those working through life transitions and can help with stress, anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships, grief, and more.  I have experience across all life stages with children as young as three through older adults.

I have over fifteen years of experience in mental health, health and wellness, and leadership including case management, individual and group therapy, community based mental health, school-based mental health, macro social work and management of large community systems, and leadership.  I have a bachelor’s degree from East Texas Baptist University with a dual major in Religion and Behavioral Sciences as well as a Master’s of Science in Social Work from The University of Texas at Arlington.  I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LISW-CP). I am presently enrolled in the Postgraduate Veterinary Social Work Certificate Program at the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
