Hello, I’m Robin Hayles. I love serving people and engaging with them through the growth and discovery process.  I also enjoy encouraging others to know and love themselves, follow their hearts, and overcome roadblocks.  I am an accomplished professional with 15+ years of experience serving a diverse range of clients through several local community agencies and clinical mental health providers.  

I am experienced with a wide variety of clinical diagnoses and have worked with all ages across the lifespan.  I utilize a non-judgmental approach while being respectful of personal values and beliefs. My treatment methods include: Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strength Based Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

I made the decision to become a professional counselor while raising my family through the school of life experiences. I believe in lifelong learning and in the growth mindset. I am grateful for the opportunity to help others learn, change, and achieve goals. I believe in the human spirit to heal and transform. I am married with 2 adult sons, a young granddaughter and have lived in the Peoria area for 30+ years.

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.
