In session, Colin creates a safe space to share your inner experiences and anything you feel holds you back. He believes developing a trusting and genuine relationship is key to a successful therapy journey; therefore, his style is typically non-directive and collaborative. Together, you will develop a unique plan that helps you discover more about yourself and work through your challenges. Sessions with Colin may vary in structure as he tailors them to your individual needs and preferences. Colin believes the stories we tell ourselves help shape who we are, so he encourages clients to explore those stories together. He also offers concrete ways of working through anxiety to help clients lead bigger, fuller lives.
Outside of session, Colin is an avid cyclist and loves soccer and tennis. When he’s not outdoors, you can catch him in the kitchen cooking and baking fresh bread! In his downtime, Colin enjoys getting grounded through mindful meditation. Have some fun hobbies of your own?
