About Robin Vlosky
Robin received her Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from New Mexico Highlands University. Her clinical training included work in the state hospital and as a private evaluator providing forensic assessments for incarcerated teens and adults, as well as a practicum with a school psychologist in a rural New Mexico public school. It was this last experience that sparked a passion for working with students and their families, a goal that reached fruition when Robin settled in Chicagoland and obtained an Education Specialist degree from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology; she has worked in a high school as a school psychologist ever since.
Along the way, Robin has lived and worked in a variety of settings, including Santa Fe, New Mexico; Tokyo, Japan; and Denver, Colorado. She has extensive experience providing forensic, psychometric, and psychoeducational assessments, both privately and in a public-school setting. Her lived experience in both rural and urban settings cultivated an expansive worldview and deepened understanding of social, economic, and cultural diversity. For the past 10 years she has been providing counseling to teens and consultation with families to provide individualized educational and social-emotional support. Robin leads social skills groups for high school students with autism, and has led support groups for grief, anxiety, and life skills.
