Trista Sorenson

(MA, LPC)

About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado. I have experience working mostly with adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, relationship issues, trauma, confidence and self-esteem and career challenges.

I am committed to helping people through a method specific to their needs. I’m here to counsel, and counseling isn’t a “one size fits all” when you have a lot of different people with different issues and different responses to those issues.

When a person experiences a life stressor, life may seem like it is unraveling. It is my passion to prevent the fabric of one’s life from further unraveling. It is my intention to help that person sew the unraveled threads back together through therapy. We do it together in a way that is appropriate and in accordance with specific needs of that person. That is why I have been trained in a range of modalities: cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, gestalt therapy, person-centered therapy, and humanism. I counsel people from all backgrounds, including children, adults and families. It is my moral code that we don’t ever stop trying to be better people, to understand ourselves better, and to address concerns in our lives in a healthy manner so that we are whole, complete, and safe.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by C.H. on Jun 26, 2020 after counseling with Trista for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and self esteem

Incredible, she’s the best therapist I’ve ever had. Insightful, contemplative, and honestly more helpful than she even realizes.

Written by J.E. on May 23, 2020 after counseling with Trista for 2 months on issues concerning family conflicts, grief, self esteem, and anger management

When I started counseling I was at an all time low. In the few months that I've been talking to Trista she's helped me get a much better grasp on my reality and has helped me significantly to find myself again. She quickly and methodically broke down my walls and gave me a lot of things to work on. And she had me address things I didnt think was important because she could tell that they were. She's an incredible therapist. Thank you for everything you have done for me so far Trista. I really appreciate you and all of the help you've given me.

She's wonderful, I've had two sessions and I feel like I'm talking to a friend. I feel like I'm in a safe zone. I feel like I can talk about what I need to without being judged. She's already teaching me things that I find useful. I'm very excited about her being my therapist.

I am very impressed with Trista’s ability to see through my walls and get to the heart of my issues. Always caring and supportive, she doesn’t let me disparage myself and sweetly calls me on my negative self talk. I highly recommend her. Right from the beginning I’ve had some of those “lightning bolt” revelations from her.

Trista is an amazing listener and very thorough in her responses. She has helped me overcome so many hurdles in just a short amount of time. I high recommend her expertise!

The best part of working with Trista is that not only does she truly listen to you, but she has so many ideas and helpful techniques to try. She also is open to what works for you so if one approach isn't working, you can move onto the next to really find what works best for you and your situation. I already feel so much better in the short time I've been working with her and I feel so much more control over my mental health. Overall, I couldn't recommend Trista more!

Trista has done a wonderful job showing me the benefits of BetterHelp as compared to traditional therapy. I would recommend her to anyone who wasn't sure if there was a place they could seek help.

Trista has helped me so much in the past few months regarding a break up and other big life changes. She is very understanding, encouraging, and thoughtful. I am so glad to have been able to work with her.

Trisha is a wonderful individual with a vast knowledge on what's going on inside the minds of others and how they can overcome their fears, their loneliness, the negative energy that is encompassing them. She is highly recommend to anybody struggling with depression. Thank you for being amazing.

Written by M.O. on Aug 23, 2018 after counseling with Trista for 5 months on issues concerning addictions, and eating

I began working with Trista at a really pivotal time in my life and I am lucky I did. I was headed down a destructive path and she helped me to acknowledge and work with that in healthy ways. I, fortunately, did not continue engaging in the destructive behaviors I was struggling with and we have been working a lot around the underlying issues. I have a long way to go but I feel really supported with her through her interventions and skills. She rocks!

Written by S.T. on Jul 15, 2018 after counseling with Trista for 2 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related

Trista has been patient, thorough, and compassionate in helping navigate me through the journey of healing from a childhood sexual assault. She understand my problems even more than I do and asks the exact right questions to get my brain thinking about solutions instead of dwelling on the problem. I feel I have found a therapist that wants to walk the journey with me instead simply asking me to figure it out on my own.
