Dr. Amelia Trujillo, Ph.D.
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional
In working together to meet your goals, it is helpful to know how I approach counseling.
My education is built on a Family Systems approach. This means I work from the understanding that we do not live separately from others; therefore, we are influenced by various relationships and interactions.
In these relationships and interactions, life may present various challenges and call for difficult adjustments. These challenges can take many different forms that lead to difficulty within oneself and interactions with others. You may be experiencing emotional distress at various intensities, all of which are valid.
Through the counseling experience, I offer a safe space where you are heard and seen. I genuinely believe as individuals, we have inherent strengths. However, at times we need the opportunity to uncover or rediscover them. While working with me, I will pose thoughtful questions to invite new perspectives and insight to move forward in your relationship with yourself and your relationships and interactions with others.
In 2014, I graduated from New Mexico State University with a Master of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. In 2020, I completed a Doctoral degree in Counseling at Oregon State University.
