Hi, I'm Trisha McMillon
Originally from Ocean Springs, MS, I moved to Hattiesburg, MS for college. After receiving my graduate degree from USM, I worked as a counselor in a residential treatment center for adults with chemical dependency and dual diagnosis. Towards the end of my career in Hattiesburg, I transitioned into a more administrative role and realized that I missed doing therapy with others. So, I made the decision to do what scared me and moved to Mobile, AL to open The Space.
I love therapy and our helping field for what it can do for our relationships, our communities, and ultimately, our society. My values in therapy include an attitude of loving-kindness, transparency, and honesty. Without becoming too technical, my approach to therapy is client centered and draws from mindfulness, cognitive, behavioral, and systemic models of therapy. I believe I'm meant to be a counselor and that's what has lead to successful therapeutic experiences.
Aside from practicing therapy, I enjoy baking, spending time outdoors, traveling, and trying new foods - I rarely order the same thing twice at a restaurant! I also own a cat named Elphaba who bring me joy and remind me to appreciate the little things.
I received my master's degree in Counseling Psychology at The University of Southern Mississippi in 2012. I am a member of the Alabama Counseling Association. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Alabama and Mississippi.
