Trisha Botello, Therapist
"Some problems feel too big to handle, and we are here to support you through those challenges!"
Ms. Trish comes to us straight from the bayou, as she was raised in Cajun country. She has been working in counseling and creative arts therapy for over fifteen years and is a certified LPC, MT-BC. She joined the NET through a partnership with Communities In Schools. Ms. Trish has worked many jobs before the NET, including being a music therapist at a hospital for teens, and a counselor for people struggling with addiction. She works hard to teach the students of the NET to be real and honest with themselves. If a student is going through problems that feel too big to handle, Ms. Trish is dedicated to supporting them through those challenges. She loves to bake and make healthy food and loves the sunshine. She also plays the piano and sings, and prides herself on her Norah Jones impersonation. Ms. Trish especially loves to dabble in different crafts with her daughter, whom she considers to be her world.
