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!

Out of all the therapists I’ve connected with through BetterHelp, she’s the first I feel like hears me. She keeps me wanting to get help instead of giving up.

I like that she texting on me even if I don’t respond. I don’t know her very well, but I poured my heart out to her one day and she has sent me messages trying to check up on me and I think it’s pretty awesome. She’s definitely in her element with her profession. I’m grateful to have her

I am not one to open up to people, but Trista is so easy to talk to. No judgement, just understanding. She is helping me understand a different perspective of myself and giving me tools to think in a positive manner.

I really appreciate the guidance and the time that she takes to read my messages and respond and a lot of things that she has told me has been on point I have to be willing to change in order to stabilize and deal with the areas that we discussed I would highly recommend her to continue her career choice and she is the bomb

I highly recommend Trista to anyone struggling with their mental health!
I tried other therapy outlets before deciding on Betterhelp. I was matched with Trista and the bond was instant. I am a trauma survivor, she didn't hesitate to get to know me and my trauma. She's very understanding and patient. She only offers texting, but that's fine with me as I have a difficult time expressing myself face to face. I look forward to what our therapy journey brings in the future.
