About Me

Colleen Gallagher, LCSW - is an integrative Psychotherapist, Mindfulness, Meditation practitioner/Educator using a variety of tools including EMDR to help others. Her work is informed by current research in emotional and behavioral health, mindful communication, secular mindfulness, compassion, mind-body medicine, and neuroscience. In addition to being EMDR trained, she has extensive trauma, mindfulness, expressive arts and mind-body-medicine experience and training. Colleen's approach is rooted in the belief that we have an innate capacity for wellness and resiliency, and that we heal in relation with others. She sees private clients, runs a variety of groups both therapeutic and non, and teaches both meditation and the MBSR 8-week program. She's a former art teacher and performing artist who blends mindfulness, creativity, play, flow state and psychodynamic tools to the "experiential here and now" using a non-pathologizing approach.
