I am currently a licensed contracted therapist at Lyn-Lake Psychotherapy and Wellness, where I work part time with clients on a variety of issues. 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 personal growth. My preferred treatment approaches include Internal Family Systems, Sand Tray, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

“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.
As a current LGSW (Licensed Graduate Social Worker) license holder in the state of Minnesota, I am able to provide licensing supervision for LSW (Licensed Social Worker) candidates at the Bachelor’s level. I offer group and individual sessions.
I have experience working with LSW candidates working for LGBTQIA advocacy organizations and in health care settings, and have mentored others in disability advocacy, small business incorporation, work with families and children, therapy, and workforce development. Contact me to schedule a consultation for licensing supervision.
