Healing happens here.

Whether it’s telehealth or in-person, I offer a compassionate, authentic and humanistic style to hold your story, your voice and YOU being the expert of your life. I am committed to meeting you where you are at and appreciating the honor it is to be beside in your best and worst moments of life.

I know finding the right therapist can be really difficult. I’ve been there myself.

You carefully review website after website, in search of someone who speaks to your heart, and after scrolling through so many therapists (many of whom aren’t accepting new clients but can place you on their waitlist), you are overwhelmed before you’ve gotten started with clinical care and forget which provider you’ve heard back from. 

While my practice remains consistently at capacity, I want you to learn about me ahead of time, because when you are trusting a therapist to explore the hardest moments of your life and place the trust of your relationship with this person (as couples therapy requires), you shouldn’t have to wonder what your therapist stands for and how they’ll treat you.

Here's what to expect:

Being a thorough clinician is key to an excellent therapeutic relationship and excellent results. I am dedicated to holding a safe, transparent and heart to heart discussion to outline and ensure how I can offer the best care of your mental health services.

Schedule a free 15-min phone consultation

I want to make sure that I am the “best fit therapist” for my individuals, couples and teen clients.  In order to do so, I offer a free consultation so you can get to know my practice, my style and my specialties as I learn what you (and your partner/family/teen) are wanting to work on in goals, treatment plan and length of treatment.

Decide whether we will meet by telehealth or in-person

Our world has forever changed as a result of Covid-19. My practice reflects a flexible availability to be seen in-person or have the convenience and flexibility of virtual sessions. We can actively discuss what will allow you to feel most safe, seen and supported throughout your treatment.

Identify frequency of sessions

We will discuss in the first few sessions what will be the best cadence of treatment when working together. It is my recommendation that we begin with weekly or biweekly sessions. Be reminded that each session will build from the previous, giving you empowerment, clarity and confidence. 

Brief therapy or exploratory therapy

I am a therapist who can confidently offer both lengths of therapy treatment well. Whether you are focused on specific goals only (short term), or recognize you have unprocessed areas of your life that you’d like support on that will not feel rushed, I will meet you where you are at and with what goals you identify are most important to address. 

You are welcome and honored here. All of you, no matter what.

We shine most powerfully when we are presented, just like a rainbow, in a full spectrum, which means I celebrate and want you to feel safe to bring in your cultural and religious beliefs, gender, sexuality, and ethnic and racial connection. While I studied in school for a long time to obtain clinical expertise, you are the expert on what it’s like to be you. I am invested in learning about you; I work towards creating a healing space that is open, inviting, and safe to explore how your experiences, along with the unavoidable systems within our country and world, have shaped your present reality.

Our identities impact our lives and therefore our therapy and our relationship to our therapist. I’m committed to holding space for you and holding cultural curiosity which means I practice, heart to heart, in the therapy room recognizing and naming my differences and similarities to foster a sacred and healing space for you.

I love what I do, and my clients feel that!

My therapeutic philosophy is to create change that will last for a lifetime for the individuals, teens and couples I serve. I am proud to share that those relationships remain and I have an open-door policy. That means clients successfully graduate from my care and return back when they have a new concern they need to address.

“I've been working with Tricia for some time now. She has helped me tremendously through some of my hardest times. Her warm, caring personality puts me at ease and provides a safe space for me to share. I know she is always on my side, advocating for me and keeping me from getting stuck in my own thoughts. Thank you Tricia!”
