Hello! I’m Colleen Pilkey!
I’m a Social Worker working as a Mental Health Therapist for over 13 years, specializing in working with trauma and stress for over 11 years. I work with all ages; Adults, Teens, and Children.
I have been doing Self Regulation Therapy (SRT) (©Canadian Foundation for Trauma Research and Education, cftre.com) since 2005.
I specialize in working neurobiologically with TRAUMA and STRESS and their consequences: Chronic Pain, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Migraines, and Auto Immune Disorders
Self Regulation Therapy (SRT)
SRT is a neurobiological approach to healing trauma, not just managing its symptoms. Working in this way works with the body and mind together, holistically, essentially releasing built up stress/adrenalin from our nervous systems that makes us sick mentally and physically.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. It’s goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel.
Solution Focused Techniques
Depending on whether a person’s anxiety and depression are rooted in stress and adrenaline levels (subconscious) or due to their thinking patterns (cognitive), I utilize whichever therapy works best.
I incorporate Solution Focused Techniques, always building on strengths.
