The Shrink’s Links: Colleen Klintworth

Bringing you the best of mental health every week.

Today I want to introduce you to:

Colleen KlintworthColleen Klintworth

Colleen Klintworth, CASAC, MHC-LP, will be working with me as an intern, with her own clients, using my office on the weekend and a couple of days during the week.

The laws pertaining to counselors in New York State are extremely rigorous and infuriatingly split into separate regulations concerning substance abuse counseling and mental health counseling, as if the two fields had any reason to be divided. Colleen already has a great deal of experience in the substance abuse field, she has even been a supervisor; but she lets nothing get in the way of treating her clients in an holistic manner. Therefore, to work in mental health and establish a private practice, she must meet the requirements to be a mental health counselor and come to work with the likes of me.

Her soft southern accent belies the years she spent in North Carolina, raising a family. Like most good therapists, this is her second career. She started off as an editor. Undoubtedly, she will help her clients re-author their own stories and develop sides of their own characters they never knew they had.

I'm a licensed mental health counselor and certified alcohol and substance abuse counselor in private practice with more than 30 years experience. My newest book is The Road to Reconciliation: A Comprehensive Guide to Peace When Relationships Go Bad. I recently published a workbook connected to it titled, How to Make an Apology You’ll Never Have to Make Again. I also have another self help book, Constructive Conflict: Building Something Good Out of All Those Arguments. I’ve also published two novels, a satire of the mental health field: Fate’s Janitors: Mopping Up Madness at a Mental Health Clinic, and Intersections , which takes readers on a road trip with a suicidal therapist. If you prefer your reading in easily digestible bits, with or without with pictures, I have created a Twitter account @theshrinkslinks. MyFacebook page is called Keith R Wilson – Author.
