Robyn Gobbel: Interpersonal Neurobiology and Play Therapy
Updated: Feb 10
Karen welcomes Robyn Gobbel, LCSW, MSW, RPT-S to the show for a two part discussion on interpersonal neurobiology as it relates to play therapy.
Robyn Gobbel is a psychotherapist who is currently focused on teaching, training, and writing. Her clinical focus has always been children with a history of complex trauma and their families. She's currently practicing out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, after leaving her practice in Austin, Texas for what she calls a simpler life. She's got a wide array of interests that do carry over into her professional life, of which she says, "I love cultivating deep, resonant connections with anyone who is up for it, and I especially love teaching anyone who will listen to harness the power of neuroscience so they can cultivate deep, resonant connections, too. I mean, what would change in the world if we could all do that? To see, be with, feel, and deeply know each other…and ourselves." Robyn Gobbel is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, has a Master's in Social Work, and is a registered play therapy supervisor, with addition certifications and trainings in TheraPlay, the ALERT Program, EMDR Integrative Team Treatment, and may more.
