My second experience with therapy has made me feel significantly calmer, hold more empathy for myself and tackle various challenges. Couldn’t send a bigger thank you

Colleen has helped me so much in the time I have been meeting with her. I am learning more about myself and gaining clarity and insight into my life and finding ways to cope with challenges that are constant.
I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Prior to therapy I had doubts as to wether my concerns were not only important but also worth talking thorugh. But during my sessions with Colleen, I have felt heard and understood. And that has been a big game changer for my mental health. I highly recommend Colleen!

Colleen is wonderful, she has experience and expertise, she listens carefully, gives her hypothesis, and in the end , she provides ideas which could be helpful with the issues of her patient. I really appreciate all the time we spent and I would recommend Colleen to anyone who has matched with her.
