I work with adult individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, trauma, relationship concerns, and grief/loss.

Hi! My name is Tatiana Collins. I am a Provisional Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor.

I am a diverse counselor in that I specialize in 5 areas including: anger management, play therapy, anxiety, depression, and trauma/grief therapy. I approach counseling from a Gestalt Therapeutic perspective. This means that I work hand in hand with clients to assist them in not only staying in the present, but also putting together pieces of themselves through use of awareness, integration and reflection of experiences , along with gestalt techniques. A combination of the latter will allow clients, in the end, to be and feel as a whole person mentally and physically.
