“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.
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 Internal Family Systems, Sand Tray, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Due to COVID-19, I am not conducting therapy in person at this time, although I do plan to offer in-person sessions when it is safe to do so in accordance with CDC and Arizona state board recommendations. I currently 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 currently licensed in the state of Minnesota as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) and also am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker – Temporary (LCSW-T) in the state of Arizona. This means I am able to currently accept Minnesota resident clients (via telehealth only, regardless of CDC regulation) and Arizona resident clients (via telehealth or in-person sessions when that is safe to do so). I am currently under supervision requirements for permanent licensure in the state of Arizona due to transferring my license from MN and am scheduled to complete these in May of 2021.
I am bilingual in French and English and available for therapy in either language.
Je suis bilingue en français et disponible pour faire de la thérapie dans toute les deux langues. S’il vous plaît me contacter par courriel à firstname.lastname@example.org si vous souhaitez prendre un rendez-vous avec moi. Vous pouvez me contacter aussi sur mes profils de Psychology Today et Therapy Den. J’ai le droit de faire de la thérapie seulement pour les residents de l’États-Unis qui habitent dans les États de Arizona ou Minnesota. En ce moment aussi, je fais que de la telethérapie en utilisant d’une systeme electronique de video-chat securisée à cause du COVID-19.
