Andria has been working in the trauma and addictions field for 20 years. She believes that many of life's challenges stem from unconscious, habitual thoughts, beliefs, and reactions acquired from early attachment experiences. She has witnessed in her clients dramatic awakening and transformation born through the practice of mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, and somatic interventions. Andria is a trained Level One Sensorimotor Psychotherapist and brings many aspects of movement, somatics and body awareness into her practice when helping clients come to terms with past trauma, and negative core beliefs. She also incorporates Interpersonal Neurobiology and integrate drawing and sand-tray modalities into her practice.

In the past, she has taught psychology, addictions, life span development, and individual therapy at the graduate level, and has held the position of Director of an intensive outpatient addictions and housing program.
