Meet Your Therapist Trissa


I am a LMHC & Registered Art Therapist (ATR). I'm trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and I'm in the process of earning AASECT-approved Certification in Sex Therapy . I am out of network with insurances and can support you to bill out of network!


I’m Trissa, I look forward to getting to know you.

If you are tired of feeling stuck on autopilot, overwhelmed, confused, or uninspired, I can help guide you towards clarity and meaning. I will encourage you to be reflective about your experiences, support new explorations, and compassionately challenge you to help you reach your definition wellness.

There are many paths towards healing and wellness. I believe healing thrives within a trusting, open, and collaborative relationship. I also believe in the power of creative expression as a catalyst for growth and change. I’m passionate about supporting survivors of trauma. I have specific expertise related to those impacted directly or indirectly by sexual assault/childhood sexual abuse, as well as people who are seeking to heal interpersonal or generational wounds. I also support individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder, low self-esteem, relationship conflicts, and issues affecting the LGBTQIA+ community.

I know the therapy process can be difficult, scary, and messy! I know this from my own healing experiences and from walking alongside numerous clients on their paths. Trauma can limit our capacities to feel many things–including our most authentic selves. Some of my most fulfilling moments as a therapist have been witnessing clients transform their experiences of self-doubt and shame into ones of empowerment, self-compassion, and embodiment. We will make space for the really hard stuff to the joyful, humorous parts of life! By co-creating our therapy space, my hope is that we can honor all of these moments together in ways that align with your specific needs for healing.

When working with me, I offer a variety of modalities that support the healing of trauma. As a Registered Art Therapist (ATR), we can go beyond traditional talk therapy to explore your thoughts, feelings, and deeply held beliefs in creative, hands-on ways. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I also completed an AASECT-approved certificate in Sex Therapy, from which I pull comprehensive principles of sex education, sexuality, and intimacy. I also like to incorporate approaches from Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and trauma-informed mindfulness practices.
