Coltan Schoenike, BS

Preferred pronouns: They / Them / Theirs

I am currently completing my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at the University of Wisconsin-Stout where I have also already completed my Graduate Certificate in Sex Therapy. I entered this field because I felt, and continue to believe, that everything in our lives is connected and intertwined, with our experiences shaping us for better or worse. Humans are relational beings, and our connection to others, whether it is our families, friends, lovers, coworkers, and the like, continues to have impact on our lives until the end of our days. I think everyone can benefit from therapy, and as a therapist, I look forward to our relationship as one that can have a positive, beneficial impact on your life. In our work together, I believe you can expect a warm, affirming space where you feel respected, heard, and understood. On the note of affirming, my training as well as my experiences as a queer and transgender person have prepared me to also be an affirming therapist for those who identify as LGBTQIA+, are questioning their gender or sexual orientation, or are practicing (or looking to practice) polyamory or kink in their relationships.
