Chronic pain is exhausting. Going from doctor to doctor, getting one treatment after another without seeing any real or lasting improvement, you try your best to be positive but it wears you down. It affects your work, your family, your self-confidence, and your ability to enjoy life. You may be depressed or anxious and even start to wonder if you’re going crazy or if people are starting to think you are the problem. Well, you are NOT the problem. Your pain is real but there’s a part of pain that medical treatments can’t fix. And it’s something you can gain control over by learning how pain is created and maintained in the body.

I understand that beginning therapy can be a challenging experience, but it can also be highly rewarding. It does require an openness to commit to change what currently is not working in your life. By entering into therapy, you are choosing to learn ways to change behaviors, thoughts, and relationship patterns that may be contributing to the distress you currently feel. Or you may be seeking ways to cope with a current stressful or negative situations. It is courageous to begin the process of counseling, and I will support and facilitate your treatment needs and goals for healthier, more fulfilling life.

Congratulations on taking the first step towards healing and inner peace. It's not easy to ask for help, but when you do it's a huge relief. Sometimes life brings intense trauma, tough relationships, and/or family who makes you feel bad about yourself. You don't need to handle this alone anymore and no human being deserves permanent suffering.

I am a master therapist and trainer. What interests me most is exploring how people have become distorted from their true nature and lost touch with what matters most to them. The work is to help us all clear the distortions so we can return to who we are: awake, kind, free. I am an EMDR therapist and trainer. I also use a lot of Buddhist Psychology in my work, working to understand the nature of satisfaction and dissatisfaction as well as the nature of self. I teach/coach meditation as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which is about living life fully, from what we truly value rather than being caught up in our minds.

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.

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.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 14228, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 14228 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 14228 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 14228
