“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”        
Anaïs Nin



Robin Ciafone, PhD

I am a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Irvine, California. I have over twenty years of experience in the assessment and treatment of adults, adolescents, and children. I provide individual, couple, and family therapy for clients struggling with a variety of difficult mental health and life issues.


My approach to therapy is strength-based - meaning we build on your strengths - and combines warmth, compassion and insight with practical problem solving and coping strategies. I have expertise treating people who are dealing with mood disorders, anxiety, relationship issues, grief/loss, physical and emotional trauma, life transitions, career issues, and excessive stress. I also deal with issues related to children, teens, and parenting.

I help people increase their level of self awareness by working with them to identify their strengths and learn to respond, rather than react to life’s unavoidable stressors and conflicts. Together we will build understanding and identify strategies and coping skills that can alter your life course and resolve the obstacles that are the source of the problems you are experiencing.
