trishanew2I currently work part time in my private practice seeing clients Tuesday through Thursday.
My previous professional experience includes working for a nonprofit agency where I provided mental health assessments and services to children with special needs ages three to five. I also provided special education services and evaluated children’s cognitive skills. Prior to this, I worked as a home based therapist providing intensive counseling to children and families in crisis, such as child abuse and neglect, parent mental illness, and separation from caregivers.

I work as an eclectic therapist, using client centered therapy and a family systems approach. I join the family working as a team player to provide a nonjudgmental, empathetic approach to counseling. My belief is that if one person in the system makes a positive change, the entire system will positively change as well.

In working with individuals, I assist my clients to determine underlying fears, gaining insight into the cause of the fear and anxiety, and beginning the healing process. I treat victims who have been abused by empowering them and helping them find their inner strength to cope in a healthy way.
  I work with adults, adolescents, children and families. I also work with people who are suffering from depression, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, and victims of abuse.

I attended the University of Northern Colorado where I received my Master’s degree in community counseling with an emphasis on marriage and family therapy. I am a licensed professional counselor as well as a licensed marriage and family therapist. I also received my Master’s in Special Education from Adelphi University in New York, and am a licensed special education teacher.

It is my hope that my clients and I will establish a positive rapport, working together to make positive changes for them to live a fulfilling, more satisfying life.
