Galia Support Staff

Tristan Ramsey (she/her), Practice Director

After earning a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, I knew I wanted to work in the mental health field, but I wasn't sure yet in what capacity. While working at an outpatient mental health center, I developed a passion for both the client-focused work and the interesting behind-the-scenes work. Believing that my strength was in marrying the two led me to develop my own path. I've now been serving as the Practice Manager for Galia Collaborative since 2019.

I love creating streamlined processes and implementing empowered care for clients, and I hope you'll experience that in all of our conversations. I'm often the first person you'll connect with at Galia, and I'm here to get you connected and answer any questions you might have along the way. Getting started on a path to growth shouldn't be complicated, so I do my absolute best to make your journey a smooth one.

When I'm not working, I love to read and be creative with watercolor and crocheting. I also take advantage of hiking the beautiful trails around our home in Charlotte, NC with my daughter.
