Robin Flaherty, M.A.
Born a New York native and bi-cultural of Caribbean descent, Robin's love for resolving conflict was apparent in 1982 while working at Equal Employment Opportunity in San Francisco, CA for seven years. Moreover, her commitment to motivate people remains seen throughout 30 years of speaking before diverse public audiences. She currently has a private practice as a relationship coach and Christian counselor for co-parenting, singles, premartial, and families. As well, she facilitates parenting and conflict-resolution groups. Robin is a certified mediator with SEEDS, Berkeley, CA; a certified anger management specialist with National Anger Management Association of New York and a certified Anger Management Trainer, CounselCare Connection P.C., Oak Brook, Illinois under Lynette Hoy; and a certified life coach with both the American Association of Christian Counselors, Virginia and the Professional Christian Counselors and Coaches Academy, Florida.
In 1996, Robin began a career in mental health counseling with youth and families. She studied communication (interpersonal/intercultural) and received a Bachelor's of Arts degree from formerly California State University, Hayward (now Cal State, East Bay). She graduated cum laude from Liberty University with a Master's of Arts degree in Human Services Marriage and Family Counseling. As an adjunct college instructor, she taught communication classes to non-English speakers. Robin holds lifetime membership with Golden Key Honor Society.

MY STORY: "At the time of coaching someone, (whom I personally nicked-named "PattyCake") it brought a wonderful experience to the field of communication coaching. Also, after being coached myself, I witnessed an amazing transformation. Thus, I am confident that others will benefit from these unique services. Today I am able to fulfill a divine journey which is to help others manage conflict and develop greater communication skills. Primarily, all of these encounters along with the desire to influence peace, formed the idea to launch "PattyCake's Coach."
