What Clients Are Saying

“Colleen not only helps me find solutions to my problems but helps me to find inner peace. I am learning how to be more present in the moment, get more joy out of life and be grateful for all I have accomplished and overcome. Colleen helps me to focus on those areas in my life that need attention (including my relationships, health and even understanding the importance of my future financial security) and lead a more goal-oriented life. Colleen is able to suggest options, alternatives and creative outlets that in turn help motivate me to create a more satisfying life for myself. She is part therapist, part life coach and with her emotional support I have already achieved major changes in my life which enable me to face the future with more confidence.”

“I have been seeing Colleen on and off for the past 5 years and I can honestly say she has changed my life. My husband found Colleen when I was at my lowest point; my mom had just died, my teenage daughter had suffered a disfiguring accident, and my marriage was in trouble. I went to therapy reluctant, to say the least. I had heard horror stories about therapists and didn’t know what to expect. Piece by piece, Colleen worked with me through the toughest of times. She has a unique way of getting to the real issue and it amazes me how much we can accomplish in just one session. She doesn’t just sit there and listen and then leave me “dangling.” She has taught me how and what to do in real life situations that actually work! The tools she has given me over the years will last a life time. The most important thing to me is that she cares. The time we spend together is precious to me and I can’t imagine where I would be if I had never walked in her door.”

She has the exceptional ability to help you look at things from another perspective and come to terms with your doubts and anxieties. I always left my sessions feeling at peace and that I had the ability to handle whatever came my way. Colleen is an excellent listener and helped me find the answers to the tough questions. I cannot thank her enough for her support during a very difficult time. Colleen Mitchell is an excellent person and counselor and has my highest recommendation."

“Many people will tell you that admitting you need to get help is the hardest thing you will ever have to do in life, but I think the hardest part comes after that. It’s not like help suddenly appears and makes everything better the moment you realize you need it. Instead you have to go out and attempt to find something that works for you. The world of “getting help” is one that I am immensely familiar with. It is huge, it is confusing, and it will overwhelm you at some point. When you are really struggling in life and finally trying to get better, it is so discouraging when the first thing you try doesn’t work. Or the second. Or, even the third. For me, after a while of constantly trying things that didn’t work, I reached a point where I just wanted to stop trying because I was too exhausted. Everything in my life was a mess, especially me, and I was being suffocated by it. I began to think that I was just stuck with the way I was feeling and nothing would ever change for the rest of my life. I just didn’t want to try anymore. That was when I met Colleen. I am definitely not a very people-friendly person, but I couldn’t have enough wonderful things to say about her. Colleen was the one who created this safe place for me where my feelings were valid and listened to. I was never judged and I was never told how to feel. For the first time, I felt like trusting someone wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. Colleen made me feel like if I kept trying, it would be worth it. I did exactly that, I kept trying, and I finally began to make progress. Colleen has this way of helping me sort everything out in my head so that it isn’t the incomprehensible jumble that makes it impossible to think or breathe or do anything that it once was. She helped me find real solutions to my problems and taught me how to face new ones in the future. It’s two years later now and I have come so far from the person I was before I met Colleen that I don’t recognize that person anymore. Today I am a stronger person and a better person—I’ve achieved things that I didn’t think I was capable of. And that is because of Colleen. I don’t want to think about where I would be if I had decided to stop trying. Admitting you need help isn’t the hardest thing to do, it’s not giving up. I will be forever thankful to Colleen for teaching me how to keep trying, even when you don’t want to.”
