“I decided to join Cancer Treatment Centers of America because of its positive energy, which was evident from the moment I stepped into the hospital for the first time,” says mind-body therapist Holly Robinson. “I felt at home and thought, ‘This is where I’m supposed to be.’”
Robinson studied English writing at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in just three years. She then worked for eight years as a professional writer and editor for prominent journals and marketing publications, developing communications skills she now uses in clinical practice. She completed a master’s degree in social work at the University of Illinois at Chicago, graduating with honors. Her training included a mental health internship at Family Counseling Services of Aurora in Illinois, where she co-facilitated a domestic violence treatment group and received specialized training.
Additionally, Robinson participated in a four-year Gestalt program, learning how to increase self-awareness and live more in the present moment.
Robinson has served as a therapist for a behavioral health services facility in Phoenix. She conducted psychosocial assessments and outpatient therapy for adolescents, adults, couples and families.
In 2010, Robinson began a private practice in Phoenix to provide psychotherapy to individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, as well as self-esteem and anger management issues. During this time, she also served military families as a health coach. She joined our suburban Phoenix hospital in April 2013.
Robinson offers emotional support to patients and their families. She considers hearing people’s stories to be a privilege.
