Robyn Pashby, Ph.D.

I am a Clinical and Medical Psychologist, coach, speaker, author, and the founder of Health Psychology Partners, a group health psychology practice based in Washington, D.C. My passion lies in reshaping our perception of mental health, highlighting its profound influence on physical well-being, and fostering a culture where mental health is destigmatized and prioritized in communities, workplaces and healthcare settings. Benefitting from over two decades of clinical expertise, I share my time between providing direct patient care and delivering lectures, workshops and training sessions.

My client base, which encompasses a diverse range of individuals from business executives, legal professionals, and medical providers to educators, parents, and students, underscores the pervasive nature of mental health challenges. Issues such as burnout, anxiety, overwhelm, shame, and stigma transcend demographic boundaries and affect every facet of life.

Drawing on my extensive and varied experiences, my mission is clear: to equip both individuals and organizations with practical tools essential for prioritizing mental well-being as the cornerstone of health, personal development, and professional achievement. I welcome opportunities to help others build environments that champion mental health, cultivate meaningful connections, and bolster the prosperity of individuals, businesses and healthcare practices alike.
