Colleen Main



Hello, I’m Colleen. Does it feel as if you are giving more energy than you have or that there are too many things and not enough mental energy to juggle all those tasks? Are you finding that your relationships are strained or that keeping up with friends and loved ones seems like an unsurmountable task? Do you find it difficult to give yourself grace and empathy? I am looking to work with young professionals and adults to help manage anxiety, burnout, depression, and the stressors that come with living in a chaotic world. Together, we can identify the issues that you are facing, discuss how best to manage these feelings and stressors and find a way to make your routine and relationships work with you instead of against you. I have weekend availability to help fit therapy into your busy schedule. I have worked in the hospital setting for seven years now and feel very comfortable talking with medical professionals about the particularly difficult strains that a career in medicine puts on individuals. Whether it is dealing with the mental load and stress of being a resident, the emotional labor done as a nurse, or the burnout that all individuals in this profession face, I am here to listen and provide non-judgmental feedback to help you manage such a demanding career. Anxiety, depression, and strained relationships can feel overwhelming and unsurmountable alone, but I’m here to help. In our sessions, I hope to provide a place where you feel safe, and somewhere we can work together to make a plan to make any stressors that you are dealing with manageable. I look forward to working with you.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, I will do more talking than in most other sessions, going over intake paperwork and discussing how you would like therapy to benefit you. Then we will come up with goals that you would like to achieve in therapy together and go over the ground rules for sessions. After that we will start to get to know one another and see if I am a good fit as your therapist.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My approach combines client-centered therapy with cognitive behavioral. I will listen to what areas of your life you want to work on and together we will develop a dialogue and work towards solutions to these stressors.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Deciding to pursue therapy can be a very scary and vulnerable experience. I hope to make you feel comfortable and listened to during our sessions together. You should be the architect of your own life and together I hope to help you discover how best to build a life that does not feel unmanageable.
