I had just been through a horrible break up, felt depressed and my self-esteem was at an all time low. Colleen was able to hold me in a space of unconditional love and support. She is deeply intuitive and was able to identify patterns that were no longer serving me. Through my work with her I have created lasting change, self-acceptance and confidence. Also she is funny which for me is always the best medicine!
