The Modern Psychologists


Real People.

We're Dr. Robyn Pashby and Dr. Kelly Donahue and we are The Modern Psychologists. 

Our mission is to provide you with education and resources to help you navigate the complex relationship between your mental health and your weight.  

These days, most people bounce between body acceptance and wanting to lose weight, leaving them feeling ashamed and stuck.

Society has taught us that we can't have both. But the truth is, you don't have to choose.

Little by little, we help you break the negative patterns of thoughts and behaviors that have kept you stuck in believing you can't lose weight and love yourself as you are.
