Professional Profile

Dr. Robin B. Dilley is an Arizona licensed psychologist in private practice. She received her doctoral degree from Union Institute in 1992. Prior to 1992 she was a practicing clinician with a Master’s degree from Antioch University. She has studied the literature on Shame extensively and believes that often it is the “trance of shame” that keeps the client powerless to make his/her life different.

Dr. Dilley uses an eclectic approach to psychotherapy. She believes that each session and each client have unique differences, and that the key to psychotherapy success is in the psychotherapy relationship. If the therapist can establish a trusting relationship with the client and use trained intuition in conjunction with professional resources, then the client is enabled to achieve the personal growth he/she is searching for.

The healing relationship between therapist and client consists of appropriate diagnosis, individualized treatment, preventative measures for the future; and most of all, hope that life can be different from the past.

Psychotherapy for personal growth is not about treating the diagnosis but about treating the whole individual, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. You are not your depression nor your anxiety. You are a person who currently is seeking relief from patterns that seems beyond your control. In psychotherapy, we look at those patterns and the system that created those patterns and discover new avenues for change and creativity.

Psychotherapy, once associated with mental illness, is now seen as an enriching and empowering way to take control and get the most out of life. Not every person is the same, so I also specialize in coaching services for those who have a specific area of growth. What is the difference you ask?


A Coaching Pod consist of a collaborative motivational interview (50 minutes) and two, twenty-minute follow-up coaching sessions designed to help you move forward with whatever issue that you have chosen to work on now.

Coaching Pod

A free fifteen-minute phone consult is provided to help us decide:
1. ) If we are a right fit for each other.
2. ) If you are a candidate for coaching or if psychotherapy might be more appropriate.
3. ) To explore the topic, you want help with and how I might be helpful.

Coaching comes in all sorts of sizes and is available for a variety of reasons. I have designed the Twenty-Minute Coaching Program to meet the needs of many of my clients.

As a licensed psychologist, I was raised in a field that operates on a fifty-minute hour. There were so many different theories and diagnoses to learn that I never really questioned the precious fifty-minute session. The fifty-minute hour does work well, but not for everything. Thus, the Twenty Minute Coach was birthed to provide a smoother transition from psychotherapy to real life outside of the fifty-minute hour. A client can now purchase a Twenty Minute Coaching package and have me virtually available for twenty-minute increments with a simple text that says, "I need to schedule twenty minutes."
The second reason I created the Twenty Minute Coach is for people who are leery of psychotherapy or who just really don't need a psychotherapist. Our needs vary from time to time, from day to day, and often can be resolved in twenty-minute increments. Most everything that is important enough to work on or resolve can be broken down to those three steps on page one.

1.) Write out what you want to accomplish.
2.) List what you will need to do or must do to accomplish it.
3.) Begin with one step toward your desired accomplishment.

Those steps can be taken in twenty-minute increments and work towards getting the first step started.

Next, the issue of accountability sets in. Who cares if I finish this task or not? Your coach does. Your coach is invested in helping you achieve the things in your life that are important to you. So once the work has begun toward your goal, you use me in twenty-minute increments to help you stay motivated, on-task, and problem-solve the obstacles that get in your way.
Who are some people that might benefit from a twenty-minute coach?

  • Parents: who need immediate processing about what to do with a situation with their child.

  • Adolescents: Who have no patience for a psychotherapist prodding and pushing into their personal life, but need help with the immediate crisis.

  • Couples: Who are trying to build a bridge to each other.
