Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about what you can expect if you choose to partner with me. I am a New York Licensed Clinical Social Worker; who has been in the field of mental health for approximately twenty-three years. I graduated from John Jay College, with a BA in Forensic Psychology and minors in Women’s Studies, African American Studies as well as Anthropology and Sociology. I also received my Masters in Social Work, from Hunter College, School of School of Social Work.
I mention all this above, to simply say, I am very committed to working with diverse individuals, seeking to understand how to make dynamic and sometimes frightening steps toward a better quality of life, no matter who you are, where you come from or your personal identification, socio-economic status. As human beings we all experience barriers and bumps in the road. But, what I believe to be true is that we all have four basic desires: to be loved, accepted, secure, and content/happy. Let me help you identify, discuss and problem solve with you at your own pace without judgment or shame. The fact that you are here is courageous and applause-worthy! You deserve that recognition of bravery.
My personal style is empathetic, humorous, raw, trusting, compassionate, candid, honest, curious, vibrant, accountable and open. I have a multitude of experience working in varying mental health settings. I want to meet you where you are and build and support your ability to cope with life’s temporary and sometimes not-so-temporary road blocks. I utilize Solution-Focused Therapy; Client Centered and Psychodynamic Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. Trishonna has experience working with children and adolescents ages 15 and above and emerging adults (18-22 years old).
