Getting to Know Colette

Hi my friend,

So you landed on this website and you’re here for a reason. I truly believe the universe connects us every step of the way. I’m Colette, Founder and Director of New Day Vitality. I’m a wife, a mom, a fur mom, an empath, a healer and a true lover of life. I’m not your average therapist. I practice what I preach and that’s authenticity. So I'll probably curse at some point in session and keep it real, pure and honest. I believe being true to who I am is the least I can show up as for my clients considering they are showing me some of their most vulnerable places of themselves.  I’ve dedicated more than a decade of life working as a therapist. Its one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever been given. This work is sacred, it's meaningful, the fact that someone opens the door for my practice and I to be a part of their journey is truly an honor. Through my own hardships in life through childhood I have committed to being “ that person” to my clients. Your not just a client to me, your family, you’re a friend and I go above and beyond to support you. Life takes us in some crazy direction at times but being on this page is one that is meant to be. If your ready and seeking support reach out today. Myself and my tribe of clinicians are here for you. Remember unconditional love is life’s most powerful healer and that includes self love, investing in you, your mental health is providing unconditional love and believe me you deserve it. You are enough, always have been and always will be my friend lets get back to your inner warrior and strength and allow you to shine bright, because you deserve it. Let's talk about the hard stuff, you have the power to change your story let's heal and prioritize you.

Getting to Know Jillian

Jillian Cea - Westchester NY therapist teletherapy Florida

What motivates you to work hard?
The fact that we as humans have the capability to change lives for the better. In my opinion, there is nothing more rewarding than helping someone recognize the potential they have, and putting that into action.

What would you sing at a karaoke night?
Definitely some form of a Taylor Swift song.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Anywhere by the ocean. There’s something so therapeutic about the salt air and sound of the waves.

Does your family have a “motto” - spoken or unspoken?
As said by my father, “If God wants.” Although this is something he may say in a joking manner at times, I find this to be a reminder to let go of the things we cannot control in life, and to take each moment one step at a time.

What was your first job?
My first “real” job was working in an Ice Cream Parlor when I was in 8th grade. Previous to that I used to walk dogs.

What was your favorite subject in school?
Aside from psychology, my favorite class in high school was my senior year forensics class. I found this to be such an interesting subject and my teacher played a huge role in making the class an amazing experience.

Do you like or dislike surprises? Why or why not?
I personally love surprises (if they are positive of course!). I am someone who is pretty analytical, so it can be difficult for me to be surprised. So if there ever is a situation that I am pleasantly surprised by, I really appreciate and enjoy that.

Jillian is currently not accepting new clients.

Westchester NY therapistWhat motivates you to work hard?
Helping others reach their goals, providing support and tools to help others on their life journey is truly an honor.

Definitely an Elton John song.  His sound track for The Lion King is one of my favorites.

Anywhere near a body of water, lakes, rivers, streams, the ocean, I love them all.  I find them therapeutic and calming to the senses.

Does your family have a "motto" spoken or unspoken?
I would say, waking up each day with an attitude of gratitude and I try to incorporate this mantra daily.

What was your first job?
My first real job was as an assistant in a photography studio, primarily preparing people to take photographs for graduation, weddings, family photos.

Human behavior, I've always been fascinated by how biology and environment impacts experience and behavior.

Do you like or dislike surprises, why or why not?
I love pleasant surprises, when someone goes to the trouble of carefully planning a wonderful surprise, I am truly grateful and appreciate it.
