Education & Experience

Robin earned a B.A. degree in Sociology & Theology from Biola University and an M.A. degree in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University. She is a native San Franciscan and spent 20 years of her life as an ordained minister. Robin is a popular public speaker and keynotes at various gatherings and retreats throughout the country.

You can get a sense of “Robin the author” as you read through some of the articles in the resources on this website.  Her gift with written words and communication has served as a powerful tool in her practice.  She has been featured in over twenty-five publications since 1966.

Her marriage to Lary Aladeen in 1999 marked a turning point in her life, Robin feels that as a single minister and therapist, until the age of 50, she has a unique, profound understanding of the advantages as well as the challenges of a single lifestyle.  Marriage has brought to her practice a firsthand experience of what it means to invest in a healthy, daily and respectful relationship with a partner.

A personal note from Robin:

I welcome inquiries about methods, background, experience and fees. My philosophy is that counseling is a strong and effective gift that people choose to give to themselves at a specific period of time in their life’s journey.

I appreciate the opportunity to work with men and women from all walks of life and various backgrounds.
