Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Colleen Perry is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California (MFC38937). Her mission is to care for, nurture, and enhance the self worth of women. She focuses on inspiring and encouraging them to meet their needs in order to live in their higher self, based in courage, purpose, and joy versus fear, duty and obligation.

She is a speaker and writer on women’s issues and works with various organizations, professionals, and the public. She is the co-founder of “Through the Looking Glass” a support program for women with eating disorders and body image problems. Her practice focuses on treating teenage girls and women of all ages who are suffering from the emotional effects of dealing with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, sexuality, and relationship issues.

When asked about her motivation behind her practice, she responds: “My goal is to help teenagers and young women navigate their way through our culture which, I believe, diminishes the value of women and all of our gifts. We are bombarded with images of unrealistic beauty. Often we are taught to value the feelings and needs of others before our own… restricting our voices and distilling our spirits into a pretty package. I envision a world where women feel joyful about living their lives knowing there beauty and power lies within them.”
