Hey there! My name is Coleen. I'm a therapist. But I'm also a wife, mama, daughter, sister, and friend.

There is hope for healing. I’m glad you are taking steps toward it.

I’ll be honest with you, the road won’t always be easy—but from personal experience, I can say that it’s worth it. You are worth it.

It’s easy to go into flowery language about different types of therapy and what they do. I like to keep it simple: dysfunction and trauma happen when we don’t have a way to understand the events going on around us—our body and our minds don’t know what do with it. So they hold on; sometimes tighter than what allows us to function.

My goal as a therapist is to address you as a whole person. That means understanding your mind, body, spirit, and emotions. Often this means working in conjunction with other types of healthcare providers when needed (chiropractor, general practitioner, dietitians, holistic physicians, etc). .

Who I work well with:
+ Individuals (ages 10 +)
+ Couples 
+ Families (at all stages of life)
+ Parent/Child (all ages)

Issues:
+ Perinatal Trauma
+ Anxiety, Depression, & Panic
+ Attachment & Family Relationships (divorce, co-parenting, conflict, etc)
+ Body Image & Eating Disorders
+ Life Transitions 
+ Sexuality 
+ Perfectionsim 
+ Spirituality & Christian Counseling


The official name for what I do is called: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR  is the gold standard of care for treatment of trauma, and is particularly effective in physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, natural disasters, PTSD, as well as many other issues. Want to learn more?

Clients describe my style as warm, inviting, present, and sometimes direct. I strive to create an environment where we can explore the parts of yourself that you enjoy, as well as those that may be more difficult to understand or accept. When you have reached the end of your journey in therapy, my hope is that you will leave feeling more connected in relationships and living wholeheartedly, with a better understanding of yourself.

When I'm not working as a therapist, you can find me spending time with my husband, family, and friends, riding bikes, hiking, or finding a do-it-yourself project to complete!
