I enjoy genuine relationships with my clients and encourage and challenge my clients to do the same with their loved ones and family members. I believe healing happens in connection with others, and that by strengthening bonds between loved ones, we become more available to restoration and renewal of the emotional self. I believe that people can heal from abuse, trauma, loss, grief, broken relationships, and life-changing events. And it is an honor and deep pleasure to walk beside my clients and witness their journey back to wholeness.


Colleen is a licensed clinical social worker and a gifted psychotherapist specializing in families, couples, and children. She received her clinical social work degree from Columbia University School of Social Work, and for the past four years, she has been providing counseling to families and individuals suffering with histories of trauma, marital discord, grief and loss, and substance abuse.

Colleen presented a workshop at the NASW NJ state conference on couples struggling with the after effects of Childhood Sexual Abuse, where she demonstrated how couples can heal emotional wounds by learning how to provide comfort and reassurance to one another as part of the healing process.  

Colleen has received advanced training from the Minuchin Center for Family in NYC and is presently working towards her certification in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
