My Approach to Therapy

Do your behaviors and actions not always align with your values and goals? 

Do you experience a daily dissonance, causing you to feeling disconnected from yourself and others?

If so, please know you’re not alone, and you definitely don’t have to keep pushing on alone either. 

I use a strength-based approach to therapy with a strong focus on exploring your values, wants, needs, goals…everything…to empower you to start to make the choices you want and gain a sense of confidence to show up for yourself and in your life the ways that feel real, harmonious, and freeing.

Education and Experience 

I am a New York State licensed Mental Health Practitioner in Creative Arts Therapy. I earned my undergraduate degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2008 and then earned my graduate degree from Nazareth College of Rochester in 2010. 

After graduating, I went on to work in the Rochester area for East House Corporation, Rochester Regional Heath Systems, and Strong Behavioral Health as a primary mental health therapist. 

I have also lead groups for individuals struggling with substance use issues and trauma as well as being an Adjunct teacher in the Graduate Art Therapy program at Nazareth College of Rochester.  

These experiences have helped me hone my skills and better align myself with modalities that work best for me and for my clients in my current practice.

Your Therapist

Hey there, I’m Colleen and I’m so happy you are considering making a bold and brave choice for yourself in deciding to seek therapy. This was one of the hardest parts, so please rejoice in checking it off your list! 

It’s important to feel a sense of connection and humanity with your therapist, to know that person is, well, a real person too. 

In absolutely no particular order, I’m a Rochester native, a wife, an animal rescue volunteer who fosters all the cats I possibly can, a vegan who is super lucky to live in the amazing Rochester food scene, and a support to chronically ill family members. 

I enjoy messily painting on my patio in nice weather, bad horror movies, and a strong cup of black coffee. Expect me to show up with different hair colors from time to time, appreciate your humor, and swear when there are just no other damn words good enough. I work to show up for you in a real way, and want you to show up as raw as you are without fear of judgement or shame.
