Associate Clinical Director
Dr. Robert Kincanon, Ph.D., LPC received his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Arizona, his Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Phoenix, and his Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from Capella University. He began his work in behavioral health in case management for children removed by DCS, and then moved into a therapy role where he worked with children, families, and eventually adults. He has experience working with individuals with trauma, substance use disorders, those on the autism spectrum, and those under the LGBTQIA umbrella. He also completed fieldwork residencies with court-ordered adults and in the inpatient setting at Palo Verde on both inpatient and outpatient units.
Robert appreciates working in a team environment, and the support that this gives all clinicians. He is often focused on case conceptualization and meeting residents where they are at within the counseling process as a means for appropriate intervention to match resident needs. He is passionate about counselor development within supervision, especially surrounding novice counselors, and working to increase longevity in the counseling field. He values communication, collaboration, and education in any form, as these all support the continued growth and development of the clinician at every level. He is very social and enjoys engaging with peers, whether providing support or additional ideas for working with residents or talking about Star Wars, Marvel, and anything nerdy. In his free time, he enjoys watching movies/shows, and engaging in mentally stimulating gameplay including magic the gathering, and dungeons and dragons, all accompanied by his future wife and their corgi, chicken.
