As a full-time marriage and family psychotherapist for over 30 years, she is an experienced, eclectic clinician whose passion is helping couples become masters of their relationship.

She is committed to having each partner feel known, understood, supported, and appreciated throughout the therapeutic process.

Trish is deeply gratified to be a practitioner of a well-researched, evidence-based and emotion coaching approach.
