Centerstone Appoints Robison Executive Director for Military Services
With more than 18 years of behavioral health and management experience, Robison will oversee Centerstone’s military-related services, programming, operations, business development and fundraising activities. Robison previously served as the lead clinician for Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone and prior to that as director of clinical services for Centerstone’s Military Services.
“Jodie is an exceptional leader, has more than 25 years of experience working with the military population and brings tremendous knowledge that will be an asset to our organization,” said Col (Ret) Thomas W. Mahler Jr., chair of Centerstone’s Military Services Board of Directors. “I know how vital leadership and vision are to a team, and I am confident in Jodie’s vision of helping Centerstone continue its work in supporting the entire military family.”
Robison first joined Centerstone in 2007 as a behavioral health worker in Pediatric Integrated Care before establishing her own private behavioral health practice in 2012. Robison is active in the military community. She is a military spouse, a military parent and has collaborated with numerous military related organizations throughout her professional career.
“Jodie has emerged as a gifted leader at Centerstone over the years with her steadfast commitment to veterans and their families,” said David Guth, Chief Executive Officer of Centerstone. “Her dedication to the delivery of high quality care has been instrumental in helping us shape Centerstone’s military services outreach. Her leadership and experience make her the perfect candidate, and we are thrilled to have her in this critical role.”
Robison received her master’s in counseling and personnel services from the University of Maryland and her doctoral degree in human services, social and community services from Capella University. She is a member of the American Counseling Association, American Mental Health Counseling Association and Tennessee Licensed Professional Counselors Association.
“My entire life has been around the military, and I’ve made it my mission to serve those who’ve been willing to sacrifice so much for me and my family,” said Robison. “I’m committed to helping provide our service members and their loved ones with the support and services they need to lead the most fulfilling lives possible.”
In addition to Centerstone’s outpatient offices located in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, the organization regularly taps into its national provider network of more than 500 therapists to reach military and veteran families close to home — wherever, whenever and however they need help – in person, online, on the phone. Centerstone has established a variety of specialized programs and services to meet needs including combat stress, trauma, homelessness, depression, addiction, marriage issues, parent-child relationship repair, and other invisible wounds of war.
Robison will be based at Centerstone’s Nashville, Tenn., headquarters.
