RC Collman

Clinical Intern, University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill

RC Collman (they, them, theirs) is a clinical social work student at UNC Chapel Hill. They completed their undergraduate degree at UNC Asheville in 2015 and have since worked in Boston and North Carolina. Their personal and professional background in community organizing, youth work, disability justice, birth work, and several diverse opportunities has brought them to a career of care-work.

RC’s therapy practice is based in centering your lived experiences in our systemic environment, incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI). While providing counseling services at Three Oaks, they will be under the clinical supervision of Leah Sampson, MSW, LCSW, LCMHC-QS. By providing a judgment-free space, RC supports clients in living their lives aligned with their values and true self. In RC's practice, all emotions are welcome where clients can bring all parts of their self to this work.

RC is most interested in supporting clients in transitional moments of life, from birth, identity-formation, relationships, aging and death. Our therapeutic space facilitates venting, problem solving, noticing patterns, safely exploring trauma, understanding emotions and moving towards your goals. As a white, queer, Jewish practitioner, RC works with clients of all identities & experiences with an anti-oppression, anti-racist, and anti-bias approach.

Outside of this work, RC works as a birth worker, medical advocate, and also in childcare. In their free time, they sew clothing, discover swimming holes, and spend time with their two cats, Babka and Matzoball.

RC works with teens and adults & their weekly availability is Wednesday through Friday.
