Professional statement

Triva Ponder is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and the founder of Inner Freedom, offering couples therapy.

When couples visit Triva, they are often experiencing ongoing conflict patterns that they haven't able to resolve on their own. Her unique approach combines intimacy-based process work and communication skills, empowering each partner to be "selfish" in healthy ways and improve mutual satisfaction in the relationship.

Triva also works with clients on a one-one-one basis if they are seeking therapy for issues pertaining to their relationship. She creates a safe place where clients are able to be honest and vulnerable in order to make genuine progress in their love lives.

Triva offers online sessions on a HIPAA-complaint, medical grade platform that is encrypted, non recordable, ensuring confidentiality. She offers early morning, evening and weekend appointments, as well as encrypted email communication.

Message to clients

I work with couples who want to stay together but argue too frequently. Using a unique combination of inner process work and communication skills, using an intimacy based process, I help you make meaningful contact within and with your partner.

Many of us ignore our thoughts and feelings, trying to do the right thing in order to get along with others. This often leads to resentment and resignation. Learn how to connect within and express yourself while remaining connected to the other in non blaming ways. This creates an inner aliveness that changes the quality of your experience of life in the ever evolving present moment. Learn how to be selfish in healthy ways. I offer Gottman Couples Check up for $39. Discover the areas of strength and areas where attention is needed. Build your relationship satisfaction and send of aliveness that takes on average 3-6 months.
