What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. Sometimes it s hard to reach out for help when life gets difficult! I'm so glad you did, because there are times when you need someone to support and encourage you, hold your concerns and problems in a safe space, and help you work towards fulfillment and peace of mind.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Colette Spaulding is a Licensed MSW and has worked for 18 years in the mental health field. She views each client as a whole person, taking a client-centered approach and collaborating with them to match interventions with their particular needs. She has worked with survivors of abuse, domestic violence, and trauma, as well as clients with mood disorders, anxiety and depression, grief, relationship issues, and major life transitions. She utilizes multiple treatment modalities including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), as well as psychodynamic, relational, and existential therapy strategies. Colette completed her Master of Social Work (MSW) at the University of Michigan. Her professional experience includes working with culturally diverse populations in urban and rural settings, with a wide variety of mental health issues and challenges. This, coupled with her innate empathy and non-judgmental stance, enables her to provide her clients with the support and guidance they are seeking. Colette asks, "What has happened to you?" rather than, "What is wrong with you?" She knows how important it is to establish a safe and compassionate space for her clients to share their unique stories. She will work with you to weave together elements of patterns, strengths, and coping skills; to increase self-awareness, improve your relationships, and promote the healing and growth you desire, to become the best version of you!
