I really like talking to Collin, she’s very open and supportive. I’ve been to counseling a few times and this is the first time I’ve actually felt like I’m being helped. Collin listens and creates reading materials and worksheets to help me work through my issues. I feel like Collin is concerned with getting to the root of my problems versus bandaid fixing them.
Collin has slowly eased me into talking about myself. I’m dealing with several chronic diseases that will be lifelong and I have been adjusting to the new reality of me. Collin is kind and calm, and it is nice to know that I can just spew about how I am feeling or a crappy day or when I’m feeling really down. This is a safe place I can go where I can tell how I’m really feeling and not worry that I’m getting my family distressed because of my ongoing issues. Thanks, Collin (o:
Collin has helped me out greatly! She has a kind approach and has provided me with extremely valuable tools to manage anxiety and stress. She is a great listener. I highly recommend her. I am so grateful to be working with her!
I highly recommend Collin McShirley. She was understanding, empathetic, and supportive of my thoughts and needs. I felt safe speaking to her about anything. She always responded in a timely manner and validated my feelings while helping me through difficult circumstances.
Friendly, personable, and absolutely wonderful. Helped me navigate a difficult time in my life and deal with my own thought processes as well as how I approach the relationships around me. A + would seek therapy from again!
Collin is excellent and has really catered to my needs as a client.
Collin has a warm presence that puts one at ease, and a focused mind that quickly gets to the point of the matter. She was able to match her pace to what I felt comfortable within the moment. When I was warming up, she didn’t push me, and when I was ready to dig in deep, she was right there with me. She is able to be both comforting and challenging in an appropriate, respectful way, and that is what I was seeking.
Collin was very thoughtful and engaged throughout the entire process. She asked the right questions and encouraged me to write down many things during which I was able to gain clarity of my emotions and of my situation. I would recommend her.
Collin is one of the best people that I have been vulnerable with. She has such empathy and wisdom. She is a true healer! I feel that we were cut from the same vine of fruit and she makes me feel comfortable and confident in my own healing. I feel so blessed to have her on my team. In the few weeks that she has been my counselor, I have seen a great deal of change and breakthroughs. I am now confident in my choices and feel completely comfortable in my relationship with my partner. I look forward to the future and my experiences to come. Thank you Collin!
Collin is a very patient counselor and offered empathy and understanding. She was helpful in sorting through several personal matters and offered great advice.
Collin has changed my ideas on therapy. She is wonderful and I could see a definite change in myself in just talking to her in a few days.
It is really me doing the talking but knowing someone is listening and encouraging me is wonderful. I feel like I’ve been plugged in again. Collin is giving some great advice and I feel very positive that change is happening for me.
