Open, honest, and caring, Tristen brings his passion for healing and growth to every session. Tristen believes that the challenges we face in our lives are obstacles to be overcome, and can provide opportunities for growth. He strives to empower his clients with the skills and tools necessary for them to reach their highest potential, and achieve their most ambitious goals. Tristen believes that much of the distress and dysfunction we experience in our lives stem from suppressed and/or ineffectively expressed emotions. He works to build strong, safe relationships with his clients so that they can explore their emotions.
Tristen has experience working with mood disorders (such as anxiety and depression), trauma, eating disorders, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, sexual disorders, and addictions. He has worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. He has also worked with members of the LGBTQIA+ community, veterans, and law enforcement.
Tristen practices from an Emotionally Focused Therapy perspective, believing that emotions are at the center of one’s life. He also believes that attachment plays a vital role in how one experiences reality, particularly as it applies to relationships with the self, others, and the world at large.
