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 anxiety and depression. I use CBT, ACT, and client centered therapy to help you reach your goals. I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University.

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.

Written by J.E. on May 15, 2018 after counseling with Collin for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, parenting, and anger

It's very easy to open up in this platform, and in a short amount of time I already feel better, listened to, and that I am making progress.

I really like talking to Collin, she’s very open and supportive. I’ve been to counseling a few times and this is the first time I’ve actually felt like I’m being helped. Collin listens and creates reading materials and worksheets to help me work through my issues. I feel like Collin is concerned with getting to the root of my problems versus bandaid fixing them.

Collin was very thoughtful and engaged throughout the entire process. She asked the right questions and encouraged me to write down many things during which I was able to gain clarity of my emotions and of my situation. I would recommend her.

I really like Collin's approach - we are therapy pen pals, as she says. And, although it's only been a short time I've been working with her, I feel like I am making progress.

Collin is one of the best people that I have been vulnerable with. She has such an empathy and wisdom. She is a true healer! I feel that we were cut from the same vine of fruit and she makes me feel comfortable and confident in my own healing. I feel so blessed to have her on my team. In the few weeks that she has been my counselor, I have seen a great deal of change and breakthroughs. I am now confident in my choices and feel completely comfortable in my relationship with my partner. I look forward to the future and my experiences to come. Thank you Collin!
