My name is Colleen Merkins. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate. I am originally from Florida but have settled here in Moore County after 20 years of living around the globe as a military wife. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in social work. My professional history includes work with victims of sexual assault, persons with developmental disorders, and school social work. I currently work with children, teens, and adults with a variety of issues such as ADHD, Low Self-Esteem, Anxiety, and Depression. I am especially passionate about working with LGBTQ+ youth and their families. I use cognitive, behavioral, supportive, and solution focused therapies to help my clients discover their strengths and meet their goals.
