Colleen Tretton, LPC, SEP
Welcome to my unique journey of exploration and transformation!
Life has led me through diverse experiences, from being dubbed the 'Money Therapist' during my years as an accountant to teaching as a Special Education Teacher. It was in the realm of education that I found my calling as a counselor.
Motivated by my personal journey through trauma, I immersed myself in the transformative practice of Somatic Experiencing®. The profound healing I discovered fueled my desire to share this empowering process with the world.
Equipped with a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University in Colorado, I bring a wealth of knowledge to my practice.
As a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner, Rapid Resolution Therapy Certification, and Karuna Ki Reiki Master Teacher, I am dedicated to holistic healing.
My commitment extends to TraumaHealing.org and our local community through the Granite Mountain Psychological Society. I've honed a keen sensitivity that allows me to perceive nuances others might miss.
I take pride in cutting through masks to reach the core of issues.
I'm not just a counselor, I'm a passionate detective on your journey to healing.
Together, let's explore the depths
and embrace the transformation waiting for you!
1. Connection and Exploration: Our journey begins with a meaningful connection. In our initial sessions, I'll delve into your background and understand your therapy goals.
2. Understanding the Basics: The first couple of sessions are dedicated to exploring your background. I'll provide insights into the Somatic Experiencing® process and the intricacies of the nervous system. Together, we'll engage in practical exercises, focusing on orienting to the environment through the senses to establish a foundation of safety.
3. Safety First: Creating a safe space is paramount. I want you to feel secure as we delve into the therapeutic process. Safety is the key to preventing the system from becoming overwhelmed.
4. Your Well-being is Priority: Above all, I am here for you. My mission is to assist you in discovering and uncovering the true essence of YOU. Together, let's embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing.
Welcome to the transformative journey!
