Colleen holds a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology and has developed tools to help you navigate through life's challenges. Her therapeutic style comes from a place of curiosity and compassion and is always without judgment.
In her role as a Registered Clinical Counsellor, Colleen offers a supportive and compassionate place to explore healing and change, the power of resilience, and empowerment. Colleen also has experience working with individuals living with addiction and trauma. Through her person centered approach to treatment, Colleen offers a unique understanding of life in transition, occupational and relational challenges, and provides collaborative trauma focused and strength based approaches (including CBT, Narrative, and Solution Focused techniques).
A now retired Correctional Officer, Colleen’s experience has given her incredible insight and awareness of what it truly means to be a first responder and the culture that embodies the work. Colleen has also realized the consequences of the job both professionally and personally.
