In therapy, Tris seeks to understand and learn about the unique person he is meeting with and to
build upon their unique experience, insight, and strength by developing an open, honest, and trusting
relationship, and through special attention to communicating authentically. He believes in client's
ability to heal and grow and discover, and he can bring to that process various evidence-based
treatment approaches for the client to utilize, such as cognitive behavioral and Internal Family
Systems. He is trained in EMDR.
