Hello, Welcome to Better Help!
My name is Colleen Hayes-Costello, and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Rhode Island. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Rhode Island College. I’ve worked in many different settings with individuals and families who experience a variety of personal issues. I have spent the last ten years working with families involved in the child welfare system. As a clinician, I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, family problems, parenting struggles, life changes, trauma/abuse. I believe we all go through experiences in life that are a challenge, having someone to talk it through with helps us move forward. I practice with a client-focused mind set, patience, and non-judgement. Some of my practice tools include mindfulness, attachment theory, solution-focused, and trauma informed cognitive behavioral therapy.
You’ve taken a big step in exploring Better Help, a step that is not easy. I’d be honored to work with and support you at your own pace.
