Our Cornerstone counseling team continues to grow to help as many people heal, grow, and thrive as possible. We are welcoming our newest member of the team, Tristen Vieaux.
1. What’s been your career journey up to this point?
I have almost 20 years worth of experience working with children, individuals, and couples struggling through symptoms related to complex trauma, identity issues, women’s domestic violence, life transitions, and grief and loss. I have worked in residential and hospital settings, domestic violence shelters, community mental health centers, elementary schools, and as a clinical supervisor.
2. Why did you join the Cornerstone team? What are you excited about?
The team at Cornerstone is a compassionate, well-resourced team of warm-hearted professionals. I am excited to be part of a group whose mission centers on the healing and the development of healthy relationships to self and others within the context of Christ.
3. What drew you into the counseling field? Why did you become a therapist?
I have wanted to be a therapist as long as I can remember. I have been drawn to helping others find supportive and inclusive places to heal and not walk alone.
4. Have you been through counseling yourself? What was that experience like for you?
Yes! I believe counseling is an important part of finding deeper meaning and connection to oneself and others. Counseling has helped me develop more satisfying relationships with others and illuminate hidden parts of myself.
5. What would you tell someone thinking about counseling?
Counseling is hard work. But it is worth the time to invest in finding a person who you feel comfortable with–someone to walk alongside you and provide a safe place to help you get to where you want to go next.
5. What’s one random or fun fact about you?
I love to paint, play tennis, and do yoga.
