Mental Health Counselor Associate
Collin is a mental health counselor associate. He has a diverse background. He received his BA in music, his MS in clinical mental health counseling. His interest are in working with families and men struggling with sexual addiction and pornography.
My primary orientation includes cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, & functional family therapy.This means I work with people in understanding their negative thinking patterns and cognitions.
Cowlitz County Office
My experience includes therapy with adolescents and families, as well as career counseling and disability adjustment counseling. I provide person-centered therapy with the understanding that every individual is part of a larger system that might involve family, relationships, jobs, hobbies, kids - that influence their story and experience.
I enjoy working with children and their families (and in some cases schools). I collaborate with the children and families to determine needs and to help find their strength in themselves and their relationships and to build on the positives in their lives. I encourage you to reach out to me to determine if we can work together for your healing and goals.
A down-to-earth approach is often what is needed to get to the heart of the struggles in our lives... Relationship issues, psychospiritual growth and feelings of isolation, as well as skillfully working with depression and major life transitions are my specialities.
