Hi. I am Colleen Kuhse-Portzline. I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. More specifically, I’m a therapist who is passionate about helping people navigate life’s twists and turns, or simply put- “figure stuff out”.
Are you feeling anxious, confused or maybe just “stuck”? Perhaps you’re missing the joy in life you once had or want to feel alive and thriving again. I believe in the idea of wholehearted living, of letting go of what holds us back and cultivating meaningful relationships. The most powerful need we have as human beings is to be connected to others and it is the connections that we have that go to the core of who we are. In therapy we build connections, explore possibilities, and examine emotions. As a therapist I honor the relationships that I have with my clients and admire the strength and resilience this process can take.
Events shape our view of the world, of others and most importantly, our view of ourselves. Sometimes these experiences hurt. They stay with us in ways we can’t explain. Through my trauma based work I am able to go with you as we revisit experiences and help create a new narrative, one that combines your past with hopes for the future.
Those closest to me know me as someone with a genuine interest in helping others better their lives. I am a seeker of truth and understanding. I have the heart of an artist and use my creativity and insight to help those I work with shift into thriving human beings. We all need a little help sometimes and that is what led you here. I am here to help. You are not alone in the universe.
