My name is Dr. Colette Lord, and my clients call me Colette.
I am a licensed psychologist with 15+ years of experience.
I have wanted to be a psychologist for as long as I can remember. For me, it is more of a calling than a job, something I feel I was put on this earth to do.
And I have always had an affinity for working with folx with trauma. I feel there is nothing I could be doing could benefit the world, than trying to help heal others from the damage the world has caused.
I have also always seen myself as someone for whom social justice causes were important and I believe that the struggle for trans rights is the civil rights fight of our generation. I stumbled my way into working with gender diversity, and have been a passionate advocate ever since.
One of my primary goals with this social media page is to help people know that they are seen and that their experiences are valid. And I have come to learn from doing my own work and my own therapy, that this is so important to me because growing up, I did not feel seen or known.
I am passionate about helping people let go of the pain of their past, live more fully in the present and develop hope for the future. To learn more about me and my practice, click the link in my bio.
