Trish teaches a variety of mind/body techniques for deep healing and stress reduction.

Trish is a firm believer of the strong correlation that exists between our breathing patterns and our state of mind and body. Trish instructs several levels of breath work training at the Center to educate students on the neuroscience behind the power of breath, breath awareness and teaching students a variety of breathing techniques that can alter the physical, emotional, and mental effects of life. Trish also works privately and leads sleep hygiene workshops to help students improve their sleep patterns.
Outside of the Center, Trish enjoys teaching yoga at several local studios and offering workshops on mindfulness, stress management, breathwork and sleep hygiene to individuals, groups, and employers for Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
Trish passionately believes in a full body approach to health and wellness. The "top down" nature of psychotherapy and the "bottom up" nature of mind body practices as therapy forms a powerful combination for healing. Through this combination, we can honor the integrated nature of the physical body, emotional body, and mind body to empower individuals with a deeper awareness and understanding of the mind, physical, and emotional body.
