About Colt

Our life has seasons, and sometimes we feel connected, vibrant, and on a path that feels designed for us. Other times we can feel unmoored, stuck, and unsure we are moving in the right direction. Feelings of sadness, anxiety, and disconnection can complicate our efforts to fully engage in what life has offered us. Colt believes the people he works with are experts on their own experience, and have an innate sense of when things aren’t where they want them to be. He uses evidence-based interventions that include exploring and deepening his client’s understanding of their own values, and then using those values to build a life aligned with what is most important to them. Colt believes in moving through therapy shoulder-to-shoulder with his clients, engaging in a process of mutual discovery and collaborating on a path forward. Making the decision to come to therapy can be a hard one, but is often the first step towards overcoming those barriers to getting what you want from life.

Colt has worked for the last eight years in community health settings in a variety of capacities serving individuals struggling with mental health challenges, addiction, issues related to sexual identity, and chronic illnesses including Hepatitis C and HIV. Colt earned his Master of Arts in Social Work at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration and received ongoing training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in a post-graduate fellowship. Colt is a member of the National Association of Social Workers and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science.
