He also received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology in 2010 at Fort Lewis University in Durango, Colorado. Shortly after that, he joined the U.S. Army. He served as a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division. He was honorably discharged after his second tour of duty to Afghanistan in 2015.
Colton enjoys working with a variety of clients from all walks of life and welcomes diversity. He has experience working with clients who struggle with Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, PTSD, combat exposure, Anger Management, Grief/Loss, and Life Transitions. Colton’s clinical approach can best be described as eclectic, as every individual will respond differently to various styles, approaches and modalities of treatment. He enjoys utilizing Cognitive based Approaches, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, Person-Centered and Motivational Interviewing when applicable in the course of therapy. It is his goal to one day focus on Veterans’ Issues in counseling and making whatever contributions he can to erase the stigma of help-seeking behaviors among military personnel as well as assist veterans with their transition from service-member to civilian.
Colton believes that it is an honor and a privilege to assist those in search of positive change, happiness, overall life satisfaction, and achievement of personal goals. He is passionate about making every client feel totally safe, heard, understood and respected during their journey of personal growth to facilitate a deeper level of self-awareness. Colton is very excited to be a part of the All Things Possible Wellness Center team!
