Using my 39 years of experience within a psychodynamic , solution focused, strength affirming, holistic and spiritual approach, you will begin your healing journey.
I believe that we all come into this world as our original precious self. As we develop through childhood experiences, family, culture and society, we often lose touch with our true soul. Oftentimes we are hurt. Challenges and traumas can keep these hurts buried. Any issues left unacknowledged or unresolved keep demanding our attention. How do we overcome? Is it even possible to heal? According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies away anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible...

Rooted in psychodynamic and emotion-focused therapy, Trinity's style is direct and trauma-informed.
Being human means you’ve experienced pain and heartbreak. What caused the pain, who was involved, and how you handle it is unique to your story. It’s from these places of pain that our “problems” are birthed. Trinity's role as a psychotherapist and fellow human is to help create a space for you to explore all parts of yourself and your story. Trinity assists clients in finding ways to heal from attachment wounds in order to achieve a satisfying adult life.

I utilize multiple modalities (CBT, Mindfulness, Solution-focused, and Psychodynamic Therapies).
People come to therapy for many different reasons. Often it is to break life-long defeating patterns, or because they are unhappy about their current situation. Do you continue to do things that you told yourself that you were not going to? Do you find yourself obsessing on negative thoughts or have urges to act on them? I provide supportive and non-shaming treatment for persons struggling with sexual behavior problems, compulsive eating, addiction, and other impulse control disorders. We will also focus on any associated symptoms such as anxiety, depression, weight gain, thoughts of self-harm, or feelings of being out of control.

Updated 9/18/22. I currently have a couple of opening on Fridays AM and afternoon. My specialty is working with teen and adult clients in the handling of day-to-day problems. I treat victims of trauma, as well as individuals suffering from anxiety and panic disorder, phobias, depression, and other stress related issues. Terrible events or repeated daily stresses can affect anyone and everyone, making life more difficult. Experiencing or witnessing a frightening, dangerous, or violent event can overwhelm our body’s natural coping abilities. Even more common life events like job/school stress can cause a trauma response as well.

Stressed? Burned out? Anxious? Depressed? Overwhelmed by the world? Difficulty communicating? Feeling disconnected from your partner or yourself? The world is a crazy messy place sometimes (especially lately). Our past and current circumstances often create a difficult place to be in our thoughts and our feelings and we often can feel “stuck” in our current circumstances. Some of us carry really heavy burdens and keep on a brave face for those around us because for a lot of reasons like our jobs, roles at home, family, friends, keeping up with the Joneses, you name it!

Being an adolescent/young adult can feel amazing, while also feeling confusing with all of the changes experienced during this time. I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults and their families, through individual, family and group counseling. I primarily utilize therapeutic approaches of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as part of individual and group counseling. Group counseling can enable individuals to form bonds with peers in a structured environment; understand that others can relate to their concerns; and share personal feelings that they have difficulty communicating.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Atascadero, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
