Dr. Robbins is the Emergency Room Marital Therapist. What does that mean? Dr. Robbins specializes in bringing couples back from the brink of divorce.

The therapy needed for those who are seriously considering divorce is very different from your typical marital therapy. It's direct. It's concise. It's active. Having worked with couples for over 41 years, he's well-versed in the challenges of saving a wayward marriage.

Often, finances are a part of the problem, if not central. Many studies deem poor financial management as the #1 cause of divorce. As a financial advisor, he brings expertise to these challenges, too. Couples go to Dr. Robbins when "all other things have failed."

With over 41 years30,000+ hours of experience, Dr. Robbins effectively and efficiently resolves issues. His approach is interactive. He gives clear & direct feedback and useful advice in plain English without psychobabble. He's down-to-earth/user-friendly, with most resolutions in under 12 weeks.
