About Colleen



       
Philosophy and Approach


I provide a safe and compassionate environment where my clients can explore some of their most difficult feelings.  I help them move through painful, stuck places to healtheir and more satisfying lives.

I am a Registered Art Therapist and a Certified Jungian Psychotherapist.  These trainings enable me to tailor a therapeutic approach for each client that can incorporate art therapy and sandtray therapy into more traditional talk psychotherapy.  I also use cognitive-behaioral approaches when I judge these to be helpful.  I am also trained in Imago Therapy, a specific therapy for work with couples.
