I am a therapist who is certified in Brainspotting & EMDR. I also integrate Somatic Experiencing and IFS into the therapeutic process. Self discovery, personal exploration and trauma resolution are part of the process in which healing is promoted in the therapy room. Neuroscience based methods provide quicker, more thorough and deeper healing of where trauma has been held and may be interfering with your life.
Hi, I’m Coach Colette!
As a Black woman, I know first-hand the challenges of dealing with the impacts of microaggressions, racism, and other forms of discrimination. I also am keenly aware of the under-representation in many industries, which leads to the “only” syndrome.
I’ve been working in the personal development and wellness industry for 15 years. By training, I’m a certified stress management coach and practitioner of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT-Tapping). I’m also certified in Mental Health First Aid by the National Council for Behavioral Health and trained in Trauma-Informed Care principles by NYS OASAS.
To guide you on your path to wellness and freedom from oppression, I offer virtual sessions focused on healing, resilience, and self-care.
I’ve set an intention to #DisruptStrong; in particular, to disrupt the myth of the “Strong Black Woman,” who is supposed to be strong for everyone but herself. Instead, I believe that being strong is based on your personal journey to greater self-awareness. It’s also based on your willingness to be vulnerable and seek out support — which you are doing right now!
My goal is to create a safe space for you to have honest, healing conversations. I will support you to feel a sense of worthiness, to know that your dreams, your health, and your life matters.
