Colleen is great. She is exactly what i was looking for in a therapist. I always feel better after speaking with her. I feel like my life is a huge disaster but she gives me confidence and hope for a better future. The most important thing is i dont feel judged or misunderstood. I look forward to every session with Colleen.

Colleen is very kind and caring.
I’ve only had a few sessions with her but she is an attentive listener and has helped me find ways to self sooth when I start getting worked up. I’m really looking forward to our future sessions.
