I am a licensed psychologist. My training has been in a broad range of approaches including interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, and trauma. I focus on your goals and prefer collaborative therapy. This encourages you to be an active participant in your own growth. Therapy often leads to a significant reduction of feelings of distress, better relationships, and improved problem solving. Throughout my experiences, I have begun to focus on childhood and trauma experiences that have significantly impacted our life.
I received a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of North Dakota. As part of my doctoral degree, I completed a one-year pre-doctoral internship at Ft Meade VA. Following that, I completed a year post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology Children’s Hospital in Rapid City SD. I have been licensed as a Psychologist in Washington, New Mexico, and South Dakota. I do have those license numbers available upon request.

She's there to support me in my day-to-day growth and personal development, and also there in a crisis to make sure I get the care I need. I never feel nervous or ashamed of how I'm feeling and I'm always comfortable talking about what's going on. With how much trouble finding a good fit can be in terms of providers, I'm happy I was matched with her so quickly and easily.
Dr. Trottier has been extremely helpful in identifying issues I didn’t even know I was struggling with and giving me healthy ways to deal with them. Because of her techniques my self esteem is drastically increasing. She is helping me become a better person. I’d highly recommend her to anyone who needs an amazing therapist.
I was very nervous to start counseling. Dr. Trottier is easy to talk to and she hears what I am saying. She is positive and not pushy. I feel supported and encouraged when I’ve talked with her.
