Meet Robin Morris
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Robin Morris you were likely struck by her infectious smile and out-going personality. Robin is a licensed clinical social worker providing individual mental health counseling for adults, children and adolescents at our North Village location. She also provides family outpatient therapeutic services. She has been with Brook Lane for over seven years and has over 25 years of experience in the field of human services. She is a certified clinical trauma professional and a Board Approved Clinical Social Work Supervisor. Her area of interest includes minority mental health, trauma informed treatment, grief and bereavement, and child/adolescent conflict resolution.
Prior to joining Brook Lane, Robin worked with Hospice of Washington County as a Bereavement Specialist. While with Hospice, Robin developed and directed the first Camp Hope & Cope, an overnight camp providing counseling services and activities for grieving children and adolescents. She is a former instructional assistant at the University of Maryland, Hagerstown campus (Salisbury University). She is also a former therapist and Adult & Child/Adolescent Therapeutic Foster Care Supervisor for The Mental Health Center of Western Maryland.
Being able to work with individuals in pursuit of emotional stability is what motivated Robin to become a mental health therapist. It is helping others on their journey for stability that Robin finds most rewarding. She has vast experience helping individuals in volatile situations. Prior to becoming a therapist, Robin spent 15 years as a conflict resolution specialist for Plainfield Board of Education in her home town of Plainfield, New Jersey. She worked specifically with adolescent female gang members.
Robin has been involved with many Washington County community organizations over the past few years including the Washington County Youth Development Program, the Child Fatality Review Committee and the Hagerstown Gang Task Force Committee.
Robin’s biggest joy is her two children and five grandchildren who, along with her, live in Washington County. She is blessed to also have her father, who is 92 years old and her mother, who is 86 years old nearby as well. While her family keeps her busy, Robin enjoys cooking, dancing, singing and making others laugh.
