“I’m here to help transform trauma into triumph through fearless truthtelling.”

Dr. Robin

A #1 bestselling author, sought-after speaker, and experienced media personality, Dr. Robin addresses today’s most pressing societal challenges through fearless truthtelling. As a licensed psychologist, she brings a uniquely healing perspective to our nation’s most daunting social justice and mental health issues: from systemic racism and racial violence, to grief and loss, to discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation, to recovering and rebounding as a nation after the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Robin wrote her signature, four-step prescription for
truth—Wake Up! Show Up! Grow Up! Rise Up!™—after a
serious car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury.

This was a pivotal, U-turn moment, which woke her up and inspired her to show up, grow up, and rise up toward truth, justice, and joy. As a Black woman and an ordained minister, Dr. Robin feels a strong personal stake in the nation’s awakening and healing around race. She draws from her professional and personal experience to turn adversity into power and pain into purpose.

Dr. Robin currently hosts The Dr. Robin Show on SiriusXM’s Urban View (Channel 126), addressing today’s most pressing societal challenges through soulful conversation that unlocks the heart of the matter. She was first introduced to viewers worldwide during her years as the tough-yet-tender on-air therapist for The Oprah Winfrey Show. She now regularly works with Fortune 100 and 500 companies, sports and entertainment professionals, and groups spanning professions, ages, racial/ethnic and religious backgrounds, leading breakthrough programs and presentations that help people overcome adversity.

Based in Philadelphia, Dr. Robin has a PhD in counseling psychology from Temple University and a master’s degree from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary. She is the author of The New York Times #1 bestseller Lies at the Altar: The Truth About Great Marriages, which has been translated into 14 languages, as well as the soulful memoir Hungry: The Truth About Being Full and Inspirational Vitamins: A Guide to Personal Empowerment.
