Hi, my name is Trecia Lewis and I am passionate about helping individuals embrace a future of hope! I believe that “all is not lost” because a person’s deepest pain often can be the launching pad of his or her success story. I enjoy counseling and partnering with individuals who seek to rise above trauma, depression, anxiety, and fear.
I am a graduate of New York University with over 10 years of clinical experience, and a licensed therapist-NY and MA (LCSW, LICSW). I have worked with individuals from diverse backgrounds; confronting a wide array of life-altering experiences and have provided care in a variety of settings, including psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment facilities, and outpatient mental health treatment programs. Being culturally- and trauma-focused, I am committed to creating a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes nurture, care and safety in any setting.
I am also committed to strength-based and effective therapeutic principles. My counseling style centers on the reciprocal relationship between client and therapist and integrates approaches , including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also incorporate Christian faith within my treatment plans when religious beliefs or spiritual experiences have been identified as important considerations for my clients.
In my practice, I can help clients:
Identify and learn effective ways to manage negative and self-limiting beliefs;
Practice grounding techniques to reduce stress and trauma responses; and
gain skills to transform and increase emotional regulation.
I believe each person was made to live life to its fullest and I offer my support as you take action to live YOUR life well.
