Founder, Hope Garden; a therapeutic garden for refugees
Kundalini Yoga teacher
Robbie has worked in many diverse settings with individuals, couples, families and groups. From working overseas in worn-torn Bosnia to the refugee community in Chicago, Robbie believes that connecting with our most authentic self and doing what works, rather than what we think we should do, promotes wellness and resilience. This self-compassionate approach, combined with mindful awareness, are central to her work with Canyon Ranch guests. At Canyon Ranch, she has been both inspired by the diversity and caliber of practitioners and services, and surprised by how much can be accomplished in one meeting.
Robbie loves making art of any kind, slowing down, and spending time in nature. You might find her kayaking, hiking with her rescue puppy Charlie, or watching her teenage son play basketball.
