About Me

Hello! I am a counselor licensed in New Jersey with over 11 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, chronic health conditions, adoption related concerns, and traumatic brain injury. I also have extensive experience working with older adults and those facing end of life.
I would describe my counseling style as warm and flexible based on my client's needs. I absolutely will treat everyone with respect and compassion. I will be on your team! My counseling approach is a combination of cognitive behavioral, humanistic, motivational interviewing, and dialectical counseling. I work with each client individually to focus treatment on what works best for them.
It is so courageous of you to take the first step in seeking assistance with making changes in your life. I applaud your effort and want you to know that you are not alone and, as I said before, I am on your team!
I look forward to working with you!

I’ve been happy with Colleen from the start. I am fully aware how lucky I am that my first shot at counseling is going so well and that I find her so helpful and kind and calming.

Ms. Colleen is very attentive and present with any flexibility given. She has given me perspectives to see myself from that never seemed like options to me. I have started to see my growth .

Really great so far! She’s thorough and is willing to talk about anything with me. It’s hard to find a counselor to relate and feel comfortable with right away.

Colleen has been a great help for me this Holiday Season. She is understanding and very easy to chat with.

I like the way our therapy is going, I appreciate the way she is really trying to help me figure out my feelings and help me thru them.

She is amazing, always checking up on me and understanding what I am going through

Colleen listens (thoroughly reads my messages), covers anything worth unveiling, and shares insight information that gets my wheels spinning and challenges me to think in a different way. Colleen’s still getting to know me and doing a great job. I would highly recommend her.

Work with me!
