Couples & Family Counseling
What’s My Story?
I left the stage of professional dance to go behind the scenes into humanity. I quickly realized through living my life “performing” for others that I craved something more real. I recognized this desire to serve and connect with others, which led me into the field of therapy. I spent too many years of my life seeking validation from outside myself and finally surrendered by looking within. Through adversity, vulnerability and grace, I was able to find my way to identity, purpose, and the journey to I AM ENOUGH. I believe I was called and then qualified to help aid others in doing the same.
Trisha utilizes a variety of interventions unique to your needs and does not believe in a one size fits all approach to therapy.
She incorporates an eclectic array of modalities such as Structural Family Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Experiential Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy and Family Systems. Additionally, she utilizes Gottman Method Couples Therapy in her work (a research-based approach to relationships) as well as a trained facilitator for PREPARE/ENRICH; a therapeutic construct for premarital and marriage enrichment counseling.
Marriage and Family Therapy
Marriage and family therapists are the only behavioral health professionals required to get specialized training and education in working with couples and families. Before obtaining a license in the field, MFTs in Arizona are required to have 3,000 supervised hours of therapy, with the majority working with couples and families. Psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, professional counselors, and clinical social workers can all obtain their licenses without ever having experience conducting therapy with a couple or family.
