This is a special episode because I’m joined by two of my favorite interviewees who happen to work together! I think this episode also speaks to the power of working relationships and what that means especially in this time of an upside down world!!

Robyn Gobbel, LCSW, RPT-S (previously on episode 402) has over 15 years of practice in family and play therapy, specializing in complex trauma, attachment, and adoption. 

Robyn’s diverse clinical training includes EMDR (including EMDR adapted for children with attachment trauma), Somatic Experiencing, Theraplay, Trust Based Relational Intervention®, Circle of Security Parent Educator, The Alert Program® and Yogapeutics Aerial Yoga Level 1 Teacher Training.  

Robyn has integrated these training modalities with a foundation of attachment theory and the relational neurosciences to create an attachment-rich, sensory-sensitive, and relational neurosciences- supported healing environment for children and families.  

Robyn consults, teaches, and trains extensively throughout the US, including as an instructor for the Foundations of Interpersonal Neurobiology Certificate Program at Portland Community College, and with the Adoptive & Foster Family Therapy Post-Graduate Certificate Program offered by Portland State University and Oregon’s Department of Human Services. 

Marshall Lyles, LMFT-S.  

Marshall Lyles, LPC-S, LMFT-S, RPT-S, (previously on episodes 152 and  393), is an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and has over 15 years of practice in family and play therapy. 

He has extensive speaking and training experience and has worked in a variety of mental health settings. Most of Marshall’s clinical practice has focused on attachment trauma and its effect on family relationships. Marshall conducts supervision and consultation sessions with counseling professionals and leads training in both parenting and professional settings; much of his consultation and training focuses on the use of sandtray therapy within a trauma-informed context. 

Marshall sees clients at Nurture Family Counseling in Cedar Park, Texas.
