I was very troubled to hear about Robin's passing. I was a long-time client of hers and want to express the impact that she had on my life. I began seeing Robin professionally in 1995 for about 15 years. Not only did she impress me with her dedicated professionalism but she possessed a devout compassion comparable to none. I had a difficult diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder where she advocated for me to get Social Security Disability. I assumed that I would never return to work and now work full-time as a peer support specialist for a mental health case management company in San Diego. In the past decade or so I would email her every year to catch up and exchange information about her career, husband and twins. We were close in age so we did share common interests. I wish I had had the chance to thank her for everything that she did to help me overcome such a difficult illness. I will always remember her and will never forget her words of hope "Annie, there are no missed opportunities". She helped me experience the hope that I would like to impart on my clients. So very deeply she will be missed.
