Colleen Ohlman is currently an intern here at Life Focus Center working toward her master’s degree in professional counseling in order to pursue her goal to become a therapist. Colleen has been married for 20 years and has 3 teenagers; ages 13, 15 and 16. For the last 16 years, she has been a stay at home “professional parent” but is now ready for the next chapter in her life. She has lived in Hacienda Heights for the past 15 years and her children all attended St. Mark’s School where she has spent years volunteering her time and efforts in different capacities.
In 1999, Colleen received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education and enjoyed teaching young children for many years. Colleen plans to focus her therapy on young children, adolescents, teenagers and young adults and the difficult issues that they navigate throughout those years. She feels that with her background in education and her experience with children, she can be most helpful to our struggling youth.
Colleen also spends time volunteering at different philanthropies throughout Whittier and La Habra, as she is a member of the Whittier chapter of National Charity League. She thoroughly enjoys spending time in the community with her daughters and teaching them the value of giving back. The Special Olympics of Southern California is another organization that Colleen is proud to be a part of as a volunteer at different events throughout the year.
