Together they work to introduce and solidify wellness practices into their lives, whether in their relationships with themselves, their partners, their family, or their work. Robin works with a wide variety of clients struggling with grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, stage of life issues, marital issues, spiritual crises, and substance abuse. She specializes in working with law enforcement and first responders.

About Robin’s book, Spirit Son
When Robin Monson-Dupuis, psychotherapist and substance abuse counselor, loses her son Ethan to a heroin overdose after an eight-year journey trying to help him stay alive, it shatters everything in her world. She finds her beliefs tested: her role as a mother, her faith, her marriage, and her purpose in this world.

Spirit Son: A Mother’s Journey to Reconnect with Her Son After His Death From Heroin Overdose is a courageous memoir detailing one mother’s story of surviving her unimaginable pain, beginning to heal, and even growing after her traumatic loss. This raw account of losing a child to the opioid epidemic and struggling to find peace offers honest analysis and reflections as well as a profound message of hope: that the everlasting bond between us and our loved ones can be embraced, even deepened, despite their physical death.
