Trisha Maulson Dean, LMFT


"I most recently spent over 4 years providing family and individual crisis counseling to youth in a shelter setting. I have experience working with youth in an inpatient treatment center as well. Additionally, I have worked with adults in group and individual settings. I am here to provide a safe place to work with you on your individual needs and take an objective perspective.

We each take a unique path through life. For this reason, I believe in using a strengths based, collaborative and individualized approach. As a therapist, I'm here to help you uncover the solutions you already have. I use a variety of approaches including narrative, mindfulness, cognitive behavior therapy, solution focused, and trauma informed approaches.

I have worked with concerns related to anxiety, depression, ADHD, ODD, conduct disorder, reactive attachment disorder, bipolar disorder, adjustment disorder, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disorders, and behavioral concerns. I am currently accepting new clients for immediate openings, including afternoon and evening appointments."
