A good counselor, is like having an anchor in the midst of a storm. Often, trauma or emotional problems can make someone feel as if they were living in a nightmare with no one to help. Other times, people are haunted by guilt and shame for past behaviors or reoccurent addictions. I strive to help people, to be an anchor. Collins Counseling is a safe, private, non-judgemental place to work through these issues & ultimately find some peace and happiness in life.
