Coetta Colombel (she/her), ACSW
Hello, my name is Coetta Colombel (CoCo) and I am an Associate Clinical Social Worker (ACSW). I have been on the social work journey for the majority of my life. The discovery of mental health and wellness on my path to clinical social work came with a great bonus, I found myself. I aspire to encourage individuals to find the healer within as I believe, healing is an individual and spiritual journey back to self.
As a therapist, I have worked with children, adolescents, and families from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. I find my passion-work is in helping high-risk teens and young adults find their place in the world. I use a client-centered approach to bring out the unique qualities in each of us. I work with my clients to offer an individualized plan designed to address their treatment needs. I am a firm believer in empowering those with whom I am privileged to connect, reminding them that it is their strengths that will contribute to their healing (Strength Based Approach). My goal is to provide each individual with tools and skills they can use to find balance, peace, and positive coping skills, as they begin to unleash their authentic presence. I look forward to aligning with you as we take a hike on the trails that lead to your healing.
