I have been a licensed professional counselor in the state of Virginia since 2001. I have worked with a variety of clients ranging from children and adolescents to adults and families. I feel that my purpose as a counselor is to help someone be the best that they can be and to navigate whatever issue they may be facing.
I have worked in a variety of settings: local mental health clinic, private practice and school settings with students with mental health challenges.
My approach to counseling is accepting, warm and encouraging. I use solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and client centered therapy as my main approches in working with others. I have significant experience in working with parenting issues, step families, ADHD, couples counseling and grief. I work very hard to stay up to date on the most current trends and resources available.

Trish is wonderful. She listens. She has ideas. Trish doesn't push, she suggests. We laugh. I come away feeling lighter. We connect.
