“Colleen always listens to me and helps me find my own solutions to problems that I’m struggling with. The way she frames questions and offers affirmations has helped me uncover my own strengths and built confidence. She’s also very smart and funny!” – M. S.

Telehealth & In-Person Therapy & Supervision

I specialize in work with adults in individual therapy using an empowerment and coaching focus to guide through interpersonal relationships, anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, and recovery from relationship or family violence. My preferred treatment approaches include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Internal Family Systems, Sand Tray, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

I offer in-person and telehealth therapy options for Arizona residents. For residents of Minnesota, I can offer telehealth only as I am an Arizona resident. I provide telehealth sessions via a HIPAA-compliant online platform and am able to send and receive forms remotely for a completely online therapy experience.

I am licensed as a clinical social worker in the states of Minnesota and Arizona, and able to supervise interns or pre-licensed social workers in either state as well as clinical social workers in Arizona. I am bilingual in French and English.
