There’s More to Therapy than Just Talk

Updated: Nov 18, 2023

Hmm, there is an old saying about peeling the onion layer after layer until we get to the core.

The layer wants to peel off, but it hurts, and my eyes begin to sting. The quiet voice whispers, “Go ahead, take the leap, uncover what lies beneath. Get to the next level.” Fear interrupts and says, “But I ‘ve tried talk therapy, and it only helps temporarily.” The quiet voice insists, “Why not explore something new, to go deeper.” Fear says, “I don’t know. I’m not sure I can let go.” The quiet voice persists, “Who will you be if you do? Who will you be if you don’t?”

At Hearts Desire, I believe that true healing transcends words. I am dedicated to helping you fully experience your emotions and connect with your inner self. My mission is to provide a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your desires and discover your true passions. Through my unique approach, I guide you on a transformative journey of self-discovery and personal growth. Working with Colleen gives you an opportunity to peel away the layers from multiple angles, allowing you to discover what works in your life, and be done with what doesn’t work.


In any given session, we might be using Somatic Experiencing ® a gentle approach to the resolution of trauma without reliving the trauma.


I'm deeply convinced that healing extends beyond the surface. Embrace a journey of self-discovery and well-being through our holistic therapy approach. I'm committed to addressing the interconnected facets of your life—mind, body, and spirit—to foster lasting balance and positive transformation. Explore personalized, integrative therapies designed to nurture your mental, emotional, and physical health.
