More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 4
State: RI

Hello, Welcome to Better Help!

My name is Colleen Hayes-Costello, and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Rhode Island. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Rhode Island College. I’ve worked in many different settings with individuals and families who experience a variety of personal issues. I have spent the last ten years working with families involved in the child welfare system. As a clinician, I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, family problems, parenting struggles, life changes, trauma/abuse. I believe we all go through experiences in life that are a challenge, having someone to talk it through with helps us move forward. I practice with a client-focused mind set, patience, and non-judgement. Some of my practice tools include mindfulness, attachment theory, solution-focused, and trauma informed cognitive behavioral therapy.

You’ve taken a big step in exploring Better Help, a step that is not easy. I’d be honored to work with and support you at your own pace.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Colleen has been an intricate part of my healing and I know that I would not be as successful as I am without her encouragement, support and advice. She is always there when I need her without hesitation and fully understands the goals I have and the challenges I face. She has wonderful techniques in helping me release and cope with stress and anxiety and it has greatly reduced my depression. Colleen is an absolutely fantastic therapist and I can't recommend her highly enough!
