Welcome to WNY Therapy With Colleen! I am currently accepting new clients. I recently increased my hours and clients are getting an appointment within one week. Daily, we remind ourselves where we are falling short, where we are not good enough, and how we could be doing better. It’s exhausting! We cope by learning ways to tune out the noise: unfulfilling relationships, happy hours, working too much, seeking approval, online shopping, and so on. These ways of “getting through it” do not last and often just create more problems. What we really want, and are seeking, is to feel alive and some version of whole.

Should I stay or should I go? Sometimes stress gets in the way of the life we planned. Getting stuck is never fun...whether it is you, your partner, your children or your job. We become anxious about what to do next because we fear making a mistake. We know that we have to do something because doing nothing makes it worse, not better! Sometimes we simply need some guidance in how to move forward...sometimes help in letting go. I have been helping struggling couples, individuals and families for 30 years. Let me help you.

As we experience our life, things happen that cause us to shift from that pure love to emotional discord. As a result, we grow apart from our true self, that pure love.

I admire & appreciate the courage it takes to initiate & maintain therapy. Indivduals & couples call because they are stuck in unhealthy patterns & do not know how to do something different. I assist them in creating & maintaining healthy patterns. Anxiety & panic are struggles for many people. They learn to control the anxiety as opposed the anxiety controlling them. Miscommunication happens because people often listen to talk as opposed to understand. I teach clients how to communicate in the therapy room so they leave knowing how to do it. Clients regain trust so they can reconnect emotionally & sexually.
