Announcement icon To reduce the risk of COVID-19 I am conducting telehealth sessions via Psychology Today & phone sessions and will continue to do so.
Life doesn't have to suck all the time. I'm not saying that therapy can make your life the greatest in the world, but it can help you work through the experiences in your life that are hard to cope with. Sometimes it helps to talk to someone who is not close to the problem and who has no idea who we are so that we can say things that we would not usually say to those closest to us so that we are not judged. I'm here to listen to everything you have to say without judgment and then guide you through finding healthy ways to cope with the difficult experiences in your life while you ease into your recovery journey.
I offer active listening without judgment, compassion, empathy, and guidance. I am honest in my treatment but gentle. I offer cognitive behavioral therapy, guidance through radical acceptance, as well as decision making, and difficult life changes. I offer bereavement therapy, and couple's therapy as well as guidance for LGBTQIA youth.
My passion comes from a personal place that has been a staple in my professional work as I am eager to guide those who want to move forward with their lives while they are experiencing their healing and recovery journey. I can also be found on https://headway.co/providers/3191 which is where I take Oscar, Oxford, United Healthcare, Cigna, and Aetna.

Ami Colon's Groups

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Anger Management

I am now facilitating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Anger Management Group sessions via Zoom.com to help clients work with their anger by expressing it in a healthy way. This group will discuss working with triggers and verbalizing emotions in a healthy way while also feeling validated in their anger.
