I have over 9 years of experience in psychotherapy. I have experience in clinical therapy, drug and alcohol prevention, medical and hospice services, child welfare, and supervision. I take pride in helping clients reach their fullest potential and conquer obstacles and hurdles along the way. I truly believe that faith and Christianity provides the comfort and support that we need during tough times.
I have experience in working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, ADHD, ODD, and behavioral disturbances. I also have experience in working with clients who have experienced trauma (sexual, emotional, and physical abuse).
My counseling style is warm and inviting. I believe in the importance of treating each and every person with respect, dignity, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels and passing judgment. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, and psychodynamic counseling. My plan is to tailor our conversation and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
The first step in therapy is acknowledging a problem or concern and wanting to become better with professional guidance and support. If you are ready to take that step then I am here to support and empower you every step of the way.
I look forward to working with you!

Ms.Collins was the best fit for me . I’m used to counselors being old and boring and just listening or not being able to relate to me . In a way she makes me feel like she is my friend she is easy to open up to and she doesn’t judge but she does assess and correct . I love my sessions . Highly recommended.
