Director of Greenhouse Therapy, Clinical Supervisor &

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

MFC 53491

I view therapy as a shared endeavor with the child, family, couple or individual, firmly in the role of the expert. I am dedicated to helping each person discover and embrace their own importance and strength. I have had the pleasure of helping individuals, couples, groups, teenagers and children with a wide array of challenges and an even wider and more powerful array of strengths. I come from a background of applied behavior analysis with training and experience in play therapy, family therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy paired with a deep respect for the human experience.

 

I have a passion for helping families with children with developmental disorders, children, teens and adults who have experienced trauma, and any marriage where the couple desperately want to stay together. I grew up in a Marine Corps family and am sensitive to the challenges of veterans and their families.

 

I believe that therapy is less of a business and more of a calling. While I am able to work with some insurance companies, I believe therapy should be affordable to any who want it.

"Joy is a return to the deep harmony of body, mind, and spirit that was yours at birth and can be yours again. That openness to love, capacity for wholeness with the world around you, is still within you.” — Deepak Chopra

I am trained in traditional psychological models including psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive, and behavioral therapy. I utilize several techniques to meet the unique needs of each client. My background also incorporates an integrative approach that views mind, body and spirit as integral parts of the human experience. I've worked in a private practice setting with adults, couples and families for 10 years. 

Through counseling, you gain insight into knowing yourself more fully. You hold the key to personal growth and development. Therapy helps facilitate your process of understanding and assist in unlocking the path to your authentic self. Creating change can be frightening but working together, we can explore places too difficult for you to experience alone. Transformation can occur through an authentic relationship in session supported by empathy, warmth and understanding. Within this nonjudgmental setting, we can recognize patterns that are no longer helpful and choose to live a healthier life.

“To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; This is to have succeeded.”

This has long been my favorite quote and my goal as a therapist and supervisor is to help others learn how to succeed themselves and live their healthiest lives. For years I worked as a service coordinator in the Children’s Unit at ACRC before returning to school to earn my Masters in Clinical Psychology. Since then, I have worked in various settings, including schools, adult programs, a clinic that focused on CPS involved families and foster youth, telehealth, and private practice. I bring all of these experiences to my work and use an eclectic approach with each individual that I meet through Greenhouse.

As a life-long learner, I have a passion for expanding my knowledge on diverse persons, cultures, and methods of providing therapy to individuals, families, and groups.  Over the last 10 years, I have been very fortunate in having the opportunity to provide therapy to adolescents, adults, and groups in inpatient, outpatient, community, and home settings.  My training and expertise includes Individual Education Plans (IEPs), 504 Plan advocacy, substance abuse recovery, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, applied behavior analysis, humanistic therapy, and social thinking strategies.  The implementation of these therapies has the underlying philosophy of creating a completely supportive, non-judgmental, creative space for all individuals to progress to the best of their abilities.

Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee

Supervised by Josh Glass, LMFT 53491

Direct Service Therapist at Greenhouse Therapy

I approach therapy believing that everyone is capable of becoming their best self. My role as the counselor is to facilitate an environment for that best self to emerge and grow. My view is that therapy is implemented to help people discover their strengths and to empower them to use those strengths to achieve their goals. Everyone suffers adversity in their life and everyone's situation is unique. However, discovering one’s best self and recognizing one’s strengths can enable a person to overcome any challenge they may face.

 

I enjoy working with children and adolescents with developmental disabilities. My background is in teaching and I have worked in the Elk Grove School District for five years as a teacher, paraeducator, and interventionist. I also have experience working with children and families from various cultural backgrounds. Although my passion is working with children and adolescents, I also work with adults and couples who are suffering from a wide range of challenges. Whether it be anxiety, depression, PTSD, interpersonal relationship problems, etc., I work with clients in the greater Sacramento area or in our Greenhouse offices in north Sacramento (Watt Avenue) or in Elk Grove.

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Direct Service Therapist at Greenhouse Therapy

I view therapy as a shared journey that I have the privilege of being a part of. I have a passion for helping individuals, families, and couples find hope when everything feels hopeless and out of control. It takes tremendous strength for a person to admit something is wrong and that they need help, no matter the problem. I believe everyone is worthy of compassion, respect, and dignity and love working with those who are ready to explore a new way of living.

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” — Joseph Campbell

 

Hello, my name is Ashley. I found inspiration to become a therapist because I have been personally touched by mental health struggles. I know how important mental health is to the totality of human health. To be able to help clients discover bits of themselves is something that I greatly cherish within my work. Being let in to an individual’s inner world, and being a part of their journey of self-growth gives me great joy. I strive to create and cultivate a safe therapeutic relationship with all of the people I get the pleasure to work with.

I am passionate in working with anxiety, and have specialized experience in postpartum anxiety, depression, and OCD. I am an avid reader and enjoy learning and incorporating the latest psychological modalities into my therapy practices. I use an eclectic approach in treating individuals with a highly individualized therapeutic approach.  I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults.

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”  — Mr. Rodgers

I value human connection and it is my highest priority to create a safe and supportive environment for healing. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults in exploring their inner selves. I have experience working with diverse communities including various ethnicities, identities, and socioeconomic backgrounds. I have years of experience with working with the LGBT community and I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, home and community counseling for adults and children on the autism spectrum, and in a private practice setting. I am familiar and sensitive to the challenges and struggles military families may face.  I am dedicated to helping people overcome suffering and begin the journey of self-discovery and fulfillment.

“A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

The sea of life is always changing, making it necessary for us to learn new skills to navigate it. I believe we can all benefit from learning flexibility and building a deeper understanding of ourselves and those around us.

Providing a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients while they explore their changing lives is my main goal. Being true to oneself, and living an authentic life are keys to healthy living in an ever changing world. Developing effective communication and coping skills are essential for everyone as they travel through the seas of life.

"Growth occurs when individuals confront problems, struggle to master them, and through that struggle develop new aspects of their skill, capacities, views about life” — Carl Rogers

Camaraderie is a word I live by as a therapist and as a human being. Kids or adults, I inspire to create a special connection with each of my clients in an otherwise individualistic society. I am a feelings-enthusiast for some, a worry-holder for others, and a safe space for all. 

I have had the privilege of working with children in a variety of ages, and numerous families. I love to dive into the client's world of child-centered play therapy, filled with imagination and freedom, or help empower a person along the journey of rewriting their story in narrative therapy. 

I’ve worked in several different settings (agency, school, and in-home) with different client needs, providing a personalized experience to each person.

“Negative emotions like loneliness, envy, and guilt have an important role to play in a happy life; they're big, flashing signs that something needs to change.”  — Gretchen Rubin
 

I believe in the pure potential of the individual. We each have unique strengths to improve ourselves, our lives, and to reach our goals. And we each get lost during the journey. Sometimes we are lost for a couple minutes, and sometimes we are lost for years.

My calling is to help the lost create a map. My path is not yours and I cannot tell you where to go. However, I can help facilitate the change you want to make. I can support you and cheer you on. I can ask questions and usher you through discoveries, challenges, setbacks, and triumphs.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapy Trainee, graduating with my Masters in Counseling Psychology in February 2018. I work with individuals, families, and couples struggling to find their way, whether the obstacle is anxiety, depression, PTSD, grief and loss, health issues, major life changes, or the general (and sometimes overwhelming) sense that life could be better. I have experience working with individuals with chronic and severe mental illness, and children and adults with developmental disabilities and those on the autism spectrum. I served in the United States Coast Guard and understand the hardships of both military life and the transition back to civilian life.

 

I would be honored to walk with you along your path.

/// Natalie Trzeciak, MA

Registered Art Therapist & LMFT

Direct Service Therapist at Greenhouse Therapy

I believe we experience a variety of difficulties, transition, and pain throughout our lives. Through the counseling process, tools can be developed to give voice to one’s experience and increase the recognition of strengths that already dwell within an individual. In my work, I walk alongside each client, giving space to tell their story, and providing a supportive environment that encourages problem solving and working towards wholeness in all areas of life.

 

I work with families and individuals (children, adolescents, and adults) who are struggling with anxiety, depression, transitions in life, as well as grief and loss. My specialty is utilizing art therapy techniques as a Registered Art Therapist to help unlock new and creative ways for clients to understand their experiences. This also allows clients to work out and practice real life skills through the art making process. My previous experience includes working in a psychiatric facility with adults and adolescents, providing school-based mental health services, home- and community-based therapy for children on the autism spectrum, and as a bereavement counselor working with youth and families. I strive to provide a safe, nonjudgemental environment for clients to ask the hard questions, be honest about their experiences, and to encourage them in their healing processes.
