About Me

It is my intention to meet you where you are, with my full presence and experience, honoring your inherent wisdom and all that has brought you to this place. Taking steps to create a more fulfilling life may be one of the most profound actions one can undertake.

I have over 10 years or counseling experience and specialize in working with depression, anxiety, and disordered eating/ body image. I use CBT, DBT, and client centered therapy to help you reach your goals. I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University and I am certified from the Centre for Eating Disorders.

I believe that walking this path requires developing a curious and accepting relationship with oneself as well as being witnessed and supported by another - be they a therapist, partner, friend or family member. I am committed to value your strengths, be a companion in your struggles, and support you in deepening your relationship to yourself and others.

Collin is tremendously supportive. Her care has helped me to overcome my skepticism about accessing therapy through an app. She is identifying effective strategies to address my problematic relationships.

It is really me doing the talking but knowing someone is listening and encouraging me is wonderful. I feel like I've been plugged in again. Collin is giving some great advice and I feel very positive that change is happening for me.
