About Colleen Dougherty, LCSW

As a therapist, I hope to provide my clients with a place where they feel seen, heard and understood. My ultimate goal is to help others navigate the challenges of life and work towards helping them to achieve their best possible quality of life. I use an integrative approach, tailoring interventions towards the needs of each individual I work with. After being in the mental health field for over 25 years, I have experience in treating trauma, ADHD, depression, anxiety, panic disorder, bipolar disorder, self harming behavior, grief and adjustment to life transitions. I enjoy working with diverse clients ranging in age from 15 to 80. I believe that everyone deserves access to mental health treatment and I know how hard it can be to take that first step.

Education & Certifications

I graduated from St. Leo University with a Bachelor in Social Work in 1987. I then earned my Master of Social Work Degree from Florida State in 1991.
