About me

I have been a social worker for more than 7 years and have experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are facing with a variety of life’s challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, substance use, and the challenges of parenting. I embrace the philosophy of meeting people where they are and helping them navigate challenges with a nonjudgmental, honest and direct approach. You can expect a holistic approach to helping you face challenges, learn more about yourself and gain confidence in your ability to navigate the journey.

I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to participate in video sessions so that we can get to know each other better. But I am also available to you via phone and text if that is more comfortable for you. A majority of my availability is in the evenings and on the weekends but I check messages often during each weekday. I understand it can be a little overwhelming to find a counselor you feel a connection with and I would be honored to work with you through this stage of your life.

We're just getting started, but Mary let's me unload without rushing or interrupting, very kind and gentle in her replies when i send messages. That's a great start for someone as stressed as I am!

She has been a great resource to me and has helped me navigate situations in my life with sobering words. Her suggestions are always on point, in a very human and relatable way. Thank you Trina for all that you do.

Trina is super nice, she listens to me even though I never really keep the conversation linear. She acknowledges my puppy during our session and we have a good time talking. She responds on a timely matter and is always available if I need her.

I have found a lot of comfort working with Trina. She has a bright & friendly spirit which makes it easy to talk with her. She’s helped me rediscover my strengths and empowers what I’d consider my weaknesses. Her words have taught me how to remain positive and proactive in my thinking patterns and her suggestions are always tailored to my specific needs.
