Sage Counseling

Reawaken ~ Rebuild ~ Reclaim

Tricia Osterberger, LCSW, LCAS (they/them)

Have you ever labeled yourself as a misfit? A punk? An outsider that has no place in this world? Maybe you feel like you have to resort to means outside yourself for comfort because you find it hard to connect with others. Have you felt ashamed to be who you truly are around family or friends? You deserve a sense of belonging in this world. You deserve to embark on a journey from feeling like “I see no way out of this” to “I am living a life I never thought possible.”


At some point in my life I realized that I wasn’t broken, I’d just had some fucked up shit happen in my life. I want to be able to sit with and remind you that you aren’t broken and there is a path out. I am not here to “fix” anyone. Let’s work together to bridge the gap from an old and exhausted self to one that feels empowered and whole.


I aim to create a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to come as you are, discover who you want to be, and figure out what is getting in the way. Whether it’s working through gender/sexuality issues, trauma, or figuring out how to be in the world without drugs and alcohol, I work with folks to strengthen their own inner wisdom in order to walk through the world whole and confident with a sense of belonging. My focus will be on partnering with you through this process, whether you are in the realm of discovering a new or shifting identity or navigating life in your current landscape.


You are not alone. If you are feeling confused or experiencing challenges traveling through your life, please reach out for a free consultation.



True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world… True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.
