My name is Augusta Mattar Colodette and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice who specializes in working with children, adolescents, and their families. My interventions are strength-based and individualized to meet your specific needs. I look at both the current challenges an individual may be facing as well as the underlying issues that may be contributing to these challenges.

I am an experienced Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who believes that each family and individual seeks therapy for different needs. I have worked with children, teenagers, adults, couples and families in various levels of care. I have facilitated multiple therapeutic groups with a focus on DBT, CBT, family systems, shame resilience, and body acceptance. I practice from a systemic lens when working with individuals or families. I focus therapy on self-esteem, self-worth, intrapersonal and interpersonal communication, empowerment and fostering relationships.
My ideology regarding an approach to therapy is utilizing the helping profession like a GPS. The client is the one who is in the drivers seat, I as a therapist will navigate the client to their desired destination, making this journey as safe as possible. Working on this navigation process, the therapeutic relationship will focus on exploring yourself, unfolding your story and reaching self growth. I do not only work on managing/alleviating symptoms which can only be a temporary relief, I also work on analyzing whats beneath the surface.
