She specializes in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, as well as trauma, anxiety, and depression. As the former director of admissions at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Division of Substance Abuse and faculty member at Montefiore Medical Center, Dr. Colley has extensive training and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of substance use disorders. She is passionate about developing a therapeutic relationship with each client and facilitating healing in a safe, nonjudgmental environment for recovery.
