Robyn Spodek-Schindler is an accomplished clinician, artist, mother, and owner of Paint the Stars Art Therapy who lives in New Jersey with background work in children’s hospitals and mental health facilities. She holds dual Masters degrees in both Mental Health Counseling and Clinical Art Therapy and an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts. Robyn is also a professor in her field with experience as a full-time faculty member and adjunct faculty at Long Island University.
Her primary focus is to assist children, teens, and young adults with various mental health, behavioral, and family-related issues within her practice. Her debut children's story, Three Brave Stars, strives to support children by working through the stress and trauma of losing a loved one and understanding grief. Robyn says:
"Mental health issues and emotional related stress is seen everywhere regardless of facility, background of families, cultures, race, religion, etc. I have assisted families in grieving for the entire span of my career. No two families react to a loss the exact same way, no two families mourn or believe or grieve the same."
