Robyn Banker, NCC, LPC is a member of Summit Health's Behavioral Health and Cognitive Therapy Center team. Ms. Banker is a National Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor with eight years of post-masters’ experience providing mental health counseling services to children, adolescents, adults, and families.
Ms. Banker has worked for several non-profits in New Jersey and has experience in child and adolescent behavioral health, trauma-informed care, foster care and adoption, family therapy, DCP&P-involvement, and caregiver support, working primarily in partnership with the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Through integration of a variety of evidence-based therapeutic techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness and Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT) strategies, she successfully assists clients in managing challenges such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, anger management difficulties, trauma, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), grief and loss, foster care placement, adoption, behavioral difficulties, family dynamics, and coping with significant life changes and transitions, among others.
Ms. Banker believes that mental health is just as important as physical health. “Trauma can impact many aspects of a person’s life, but all individuals have the capacity to make positive changes and improve their quality of life,” says Ms. Banker. She adds, “My passion is forming strong therapeutic alliances with people and helping them learn necessary coping skills and effective communication strategies that will aid them in processing their experiences and moving toward critical changes.”
When not working with patients, Ms. Banker loves going to the gym, spending time with friends and family, traveling, spending as much time as possible at the beach during the summer, singing, partaking in game nights, and visiting wineries and breweries.
