“I believe one of the most important things for you to learn as a patient is to ask your doctor questions. I have discovered that it is common for doctors not to volunteer information unless you are asking direct questions. If your doctor is too impatient to answer your questions, find a new doctor.” Robin B. Dilley, PhD

“This compelling, nakedly-honest story about Dr. Dilley’s struggle with breast cancer is written from the heart, like a prayer. Here is a doctor/patient who is willing to move beyond her challenges and fears to touch all doctors and patients, all seekers, everywhere.”
Dr. Carl Hammerschlag,

About the Author

Dr. Robin B. Dilley is an Arizona licensed psychologist in private practice. She received her doctoral degree from Union Institute in 1992 and has been practicing as a clinician in the field of psychotherapy since 1978. She has studied extensively the literature on Shame and believes that often it is the "trance of shame" that keeps the client powerless to make his/her life different.

Dr. Dilley uses an eclectic approach to psychotherapy. She believes that each session and each client have unique differences, and that the key to psychotherapy success is in the psychotherapy relationship. If the therapist can establish a trusting relationship with the client and then be intuitive enough to use all of her professional resources, then the client is enabled to achieve the personal growth he/she came in to find.

The healing relationship between therapist and client consists of appropriate diagnosis, appropriate treatment, preventative measures for the future, and most of all hope that life can be different from the replication of the past. "Psychotherapy for Personal Growth and Redirection" is the heart of Dr. Dilley's practice, so regardless of what the problem is, there is a solution. The solution is found in the journey, not in the destination.

In addition to being a Psychologists and author, she is a professional speaker, workshop leader and seminar facilitator on many self-growth and professional topics. Dr. Dilley is also a professional member of the Arizona Psychological Association, a Clinical Affiliate of the American Marriage and Family Association and an Arizona State Affiliate of the American Marriage and Family Therapy Association. Dr. Dilley is currently has her Diplomate status in Psychopharmacology. She is also a member of the Silv
