Robin Rosendale LMHC, is a licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in New York City's West Village. His therapeutic approach integrates dynamic psychotherapy coupled with contemplative awareness practices. Prior to his training at the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association, Robin completed his graduate training at Naropa University where his degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy provided an in-depth study of Buddhist psychological principles and western clinical psychology.
As a practicing meditator, Robin views the art of psychotherapy as a collaborative extension of the meditative process. With mindful investigation, his approach explores how our reflexive and habitual defenses against unwanted feelings often keep us from being present to ourselves and the world around us. To feel emotional pain is not a sign of failure, but an inevitable and essential part of being human. Robin's approach cultivates the requisite attitude, understanding, and skills needed to face our difficulties so that its specific expression can be seen not as something to avoid, but as a necessary ingredient to our psychological and spiritual maturation.
Robin's many years of experience in the field have given him the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people experiencing a wide range of difficulties. In addition, his work in the LGBTQ community has provided extensive experience in working with people who identify as transgender and gender non-conforming. Robin's areas of expertise include:
- ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION

- GRIEF AND LOSS
- ADDICTIVE AND HABITUAL PATTERNS OF THINKING AND BEHAVING
- CREATIVE BLOCKS
