psychotherapy and coaching
Heather Colligan has been a licensed marriage and family therapist for the past fifteen years, much of it as a therapist and program director of residential treatment programs. Over the course of the past two decades, she has been involved in developing her own intuition and exploring dream analysis. In that process, with her combined skills, she studied under the mentorship of Lauren Schneider, LMFT for certification in the use of a tool called Tarotpy® ( a Board of Behavioral Sciences approved intervention). Tarotpy®, as a projective tool, relies on imagery. It is the expression of archetypes in the images that have laid the path of humanity since the beginning of time.
Heather guides, supports, coaches, and helps you tap in to your own inner wisdom and find your own answers. She is a Certified Professional Life Coach with the gift of inspiration and guidance. In addition she is trained in Brainspotting, a trauma based treatment developed from EMDR. She is experienced in treating adolescents, their families, parent coaching, trauma, substance abuse, stress, anxiety, and depression. Her clients appreciate her compassionate, hopeful, and humorous style.
Heather also co-facilitates "Windows to Inner Wisdom and Reflection Art Workshops" with Susan O'Connor, Art as Therapy Educator and Facilitator. These are hosted every few months at My Health Studio. With the use of paper collage, color and design, participants create their own wisdom cards and interactive journal in addition to other projects.
In her private practice, the best suited match is an adult client who is on a path of self-discovery and reflection.
"Your visions will become clear only when you can look in to your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams: he who looks inside, awakes." (Jung)
