Torrie Blackwell

(LCMFT)

About Me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in both New York and Maryland. I have experience working with couples, young adults and teens in the school ,clinic, and community settings. In my time as a counselor I have assisted individuals with working through issues such as: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, skill development, problem-solving,life transitions, as well as interpersonal conflicts.

My counseling style is very flexible and creative. I find myself naturally being able to support and encourage, but also challenging clients as necessary. I believe in assisting others with being their highest self, because we all are so valuable.

It takes strength and courage to seek out support and assistance through therapy, and I will honor your vulnerability with confidentiality and respect. I aim to create a safe space between us through the counseling relationship. I look forward to being a part of your journey.

I provide live sessions via phone call and chat message.

Seriously she is very skilled at what she does. I was really skeptical about this type of therapy, there is so much lost not being face to face. Torrie makes up for all of this! She takes time fully examine what the client says and gives highly skilled feedback! I would absolutely recommend her to everyone!

I have now had a few sessions with Torrie. I find it helpful to talk through my feelings and emotions with her. I feel better after my sessions. She listens and helps me explore what I’m feeling a little deeper. I was a little apprehensive as to who I’d be paired with at first, but I feel lucky to have been matched with her.

I love that she listens to what I am saying and that the feedback that I get from her helps me think more about why I am feeling the way I feel.

When I had my first session with Torrie, I wasn't sure that it was going to work out, but I was wrong. Torrie is amazing and blunt with me, as well as forcing me to realize I have problems that I need to admit to myself.
