Welcome to trish.love

When I set out to create my private practice after working in trauma treatment for years, I questioned what I wanted to bring to the therapy room beyond the modalities that I have practiced and developed.  The answer was actually quite simple:  love.  I say this often and my heart is fully behind these words, I will love you until you can love yourself.  I will hold hope for change until you can carry the hope yourself, and I will believe in you when at times it feels too difficult to do so.  Together, let’s facilitate hope and change.

Why counseling?

Counseling can help you make decisions. Counseling can break through barriers. Counseling can help you plan for the future or rectify issues from your past. Counseling can help you move towards acceptance of self. Counseling can provide a safe environment to truly express your feelings.

What is trauma?

Webster defines trauma as “1a: an injury (such as a wound) to living tissue caused by an extrinsic agent. b: a disordered psychic or behavioral state resulting from severe mental or emotional stress or physical injury. c: an emotional upset.”

How I see it, is that each of us have experienced events in our life that have caused our hearts to hurt, and all individuals deserve to reprocess the events that have created pain for us. We deserve to live an authentic life. If you have barriers and blocks within relationships, if you turn to medicators to “feel” better, let’s work together to find the healing you deserve.

“Trauma is a fact of life. It does not, however, have to be a life sentence.” – Peter A. Levine
