LEARN ABOUT WHO WE ARE
All of us get "stuck" at some point in our lives. It doesn't mean we are broken. The work is to find our way back to healthy and meaningful living. We can help you connect with strengths you already possess while also building new insight and new skills to move towards a rich and meaningful life.
TRICIA MAZZA, LPC, NCAC I
Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest that started with a very broad study of social science has led into a very fulfilling career as a licensed Therapist and Educator.
CLINICAL MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING
I believe the key to good counseling is to build a strong therapeutic relationship. That is why I strive to have trust, communication, and rapport with my clients.
"The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination."
- Carl Rogers
At Cohesive, our highest priority is the quality of care we provide to our clients and to the Richmond community.
Education and the pursuit of continued knowledge is our top value. Not only do we attend frequent trainings and consultation with other therapists in the field, but we consider self-awareness and self-knowledge a vital component of providing the best care to our clients. We believe in staying up-to-date with the latest research while also holding in mind that each person is an individual, and that this work is as much an art as a science.
We only work with a select number of clients at a time in order to provide personalized care, time, and attention to each client. We hold ethical standards throughout every inch of our practice and pledge to never practice outside our areas of expertise.
We serve our clients with compassion and respect regardless of age, gender identity, race, diagnoses, ability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background. We stand with those speaking out against racism, prejudice, oppression, and injustice. We are committed to examining our own privileges as an ongoing practice, rather than a destination or one-time act. In our therapeutic work, we are devoted to creating an atmosphere of openness and encourage exploration of how each of us relates to these issues.
