Tricia Begay, Therapist

Yá'át'ééh (Greetings). My name is Tricia Begay. I am Dine’/Navajo. My Dine’ clans are Edgewater clan (Tábą ą há), born for the Towering House clan (Kiyaa’áanii), maternal grandfather is Many Goat clan (Tł’izí lání), and paternal grandfather is the Big Water clan (Tótsohníí). I was born and raised on the Navajo Indian reservation in Chinle, Arizona. I left the reservation in 1987 to pursue higher education. I received a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ in 1991. In 2008, I earned a Master of Science in Family, Marriage, and Child Therapy from the University of Phoenix. Currently, I am a doctoral candidate at Walden University; specializing in clinical psychology. My journey in academics developed from inherit values and cultural teachings from extended and immediate family members, along with my community. I am grateful to be part of the Native American Community Clinic’s (NACC) family. I am a behavioral health provider. The areas of specialty I work with are family system, individual, and group therapy.
