Following her internship, she continued as staff for many years. Most recently, Trisha has worked for a medical school, specializing in severe and persistent mental illness, while also teaching psychotherapy to psychiatry residents.
Trisha has a great deal of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of presenting problems. Trisha has extensive training and background in the treatment of children and adolescents impacted by sexual abuse, as well as those struggling in the foster care system. Other areas of interest and experience include depression, anxiety, severe mental illness, adoption related concerns, emotional trauma, and sexual assault.
Trisha uses an integrative therapeutic technique because she believes that therapy is unique to the individual. She believes that the technique(s) used should reflect the individual’s need(s), the situation or presenting problem, and be a reflection of the therapeutic alliance. Trisha's treatment approaches include cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic, and supportive theories and models.
