Dolores Colgan, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Syosset
Dolores Colgan is not currently accepting new clients.
I specialize in helping you cope with complex life issues that may have you feeling fearful, overwhelmed, frustrated or alone. Serious and chronic illness, caregiver or workplace stress, strained relationships, veteran's readjustment, and life-stage transitions are some examples. I help you learn skills to change unhealthly thinking or behavior patterns and to understand and adapt to circumstances that affect your self-esteem, relationships and functioning. Anxiety diminishes as you become aware of options and adopt positive strategies.
I believe that emotional and physical health are interdependent and that telling your story to an empathic and non-judgmental listener is important to your health and well-being.
My personal experience of caring for loved ones with life-threatening illness, combat-related stress, and Alzheimer's disease has enhanced my understanding and empathy for the unique needs of patients, caregivers, veterans and their families.
