Hi, my name is Colette and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I recognize that for some researching a counselor and entering therapy can feel like a big step and I look forward to connecting.
I can provide you with care, compassion, support, and a place to process and honor your experiences. I believe that it is possible to hold both pain and joy.
I employ an integrative approach drawing upon humanistic and mindfulness modalities. Our work will be client-centered and led. We can process the past to see where patterns emerged from, examine thoughts, beliefs, and actions to manage stress in the present, and use mindfulness as a tool if desired. This approach may be helpful if you are managing depression, anxiety, codependency, or life transitions.
Additionally, I am a Compassionate Bereavement Care Certified Provider via the MISS Foundation, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Family Trust, and the Center for Loss and Trauma. This modality focuses on traumatic grief and its impact on individuals, families, and society. Miscarriage, perinatal loss, pregnancy complications, maternal health, and the NICU experience are all areas that I care deeply about.
My background includes nearly two decades in the field of education as both a teacher and currently as a counselor. When I am not working I enjoy running, exploring spirituality, and spending time with my family, and two-year-old dog Carmella.
I see clients of all ages when it’s grief-related. For all other topics, I work only with adults. I invite you to take a deep breath and if it feels right, schedule an appointment with me. Thank you for reading.
