Counseling and Consultation Service

Collin Pfaff, B.S., SWT

Therapeutic Style:

I cultivate a safe space where clients can process their concerns, experience their emotions, and define therapeutic goals on their own terms. I help clients identify their unique strengths so that they can skillfully work towards their therapeutic goals with a sense of ease. Personal transformation is a creative process and I enjoy collaborating with clients as they explore and develop their own approach to healing. 

Professional Interests:

  • Mind-Body-Spirit Integration: Strengths-Based Approach Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Logotherapy, Narrative Therapy, Poetry, Yoga, Loving-Kindness Meditation (Metta Meditation)
  • Community Building and Social Justice: Family Systems, Humane Technology, Equitable Work Environments, Leadership Development, Ethical Consumerism

Groups and Liaison Roles:

Educational Background: 

I received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a minor in Entrepreneurship at The Ohio State University. I am currently a graduate student enrolled in the Masters in Social Work Program at The Ohio State University. 

Personal Interests:

One of my closest friends once told me "always wear clothes that you can dance in". I try living my life that way, where each moment is an opportunity to be joyful. It doesn't always look like much (you still have to go to work and do the dishes) and there's plenty of silence. It is a great adventure.
