I have enjoyed practicing psychotherapy for over 27 years now. It is a great privilege to work with individuals from all backgrounds who are courageous enough to share the most intimate details of their lives and work towards self-improvement. I specialize in working with adults with a wide range of concerns, and am skilled in several theoretical frameworks including EMDR. I come with a broad background, with advanced degrees in education and social work, as well as a law degree. As a licensed attorney and certified mediator with 9 years experience as a guardian ad litem determining child custody issues, I can help you navigate the legal system for issues such as divorce or ensuring that your special needs child is receiving all of the public school services to which he is entitled. As a veteran and active reservist, I have significant experience with service members and their unique concerns.

Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy

Trish helps me with anxiety, worry, relationships, sticking up for myself, understanding my family background. She listens well, including when I tell her what I need or what would be helpful. I'm struggling with being unemployed, the death of my dog, my spouse's declining health, and an emotionally distant, adult stepchild who's undermining my marriage. I'm very grateful and fortunate to have Trish helping me at this time. She gives me perspective and helps me stick up for myself.
