Tristan is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, where he completed a Masters of Theology before earning his Masters in Counseling. He believes that counseling should treat the whole person–body, mind, and soul–and thus takes a holistic and collaborative approach to therapy that recognizes the beautiful complexity of each of his clients.
Tristan works primarily with adults, marriages, and families through a variety of individual and relationship issues, including addiction, life-direction, anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, and trauma. Tristan utilizes a variety of models and theories–such as Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Person-Centered, and Narrative Therapy models–tailored to the client’s specific needs, situation, and personality.
A native of Chicago’s West Side, Tristan can’t get enough of Lou Malnati’s deep-dish pizza, polish sausages (no ketchup, just mustard iykyk), and Garrett’s popcorn. Since coming to Dallas, however, his palate has grown to appreciate all things Texas BBQ. In his spare time, Tristan enjoys reading, watching movies with his wife, Nancy, hanging out with friends, and learning new things.
