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 recurrent addictions. We strive to help people, to be anchors. Collins Counseling is a safe, private, non-judgmental place to work through these issues & ultimately find some peace and happiness in life.
