Hello, I am Collis!
I'm a licensed social worker who can practice clinically in Florida, Tennessee, and Colorado providing counseling to clients. I've worked in clinical settings ranging from inpatient mental health and substance use disorder treatment to outpatient telehealth. I am an empathetic and passionate therapist with strong counseling abilities and an understanding of how our lives are affected by many areas, including biological, familial, social, and spiritual issues.
I have experience leading clients through mental health struggles, trauma, addiction, grief, and relationship issues. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy, I support and assist those seeking to make a positive difference in their lives.
I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive holding space to work side by side to overcome traumas, barriers, and life transitions. I specialize in addressing various mental health, addiction, and many life problems that can benefit from professional support. I am fully committed to listening and offering my best professional practices to help you.
I am egalitarian and caring. You can count on me to provide the best of my professional skills and respect you as your ultimate authority. Whether this is your first time seeking therapy or you have been in therapy many times, I appreciate you allowing me to be part of this important journey with you.
