Hey, there. I’m Trish. How’s it going?

“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.” Brené Brown
What you’ve experienced as a child shapes you as an adult. It affects your personality – your struggles, your strengths, even what’s happening in your life right now. Looking into your past can seem scary, but digging deep can help you discover what you need to do to change your life for the better.
As a part-time therapist at The Centered Life in Naperville - who also works at Hinsdale Hospital- I provide each of my clients with a person-centered, strengths-based approach to healing. With me, clients have a safe space to explore their memories and move forward with their lives.
My goal is for my clients to become the best version of themselves while working through the things that affect them, like depression, anxiety and trauma. I’m here to help them acknowledge, process and move through those feelings. Ultimately, I want my clients to function at their own idea of 100%, whatever that may look like.
One of the biggest gifts I bring to The Centered Life is a sense of calm. Because I’m an easy going person, I have a very calming effect on my clients and co-workers. I bring this balanced approach to conflicts and problems, offering people a chance to let down their guard and find solutions.
Family is extremely important to me. I’m close with my parents and brothers while coming from a big extended family. Now, as a mom, I understand the meaning of the word even more with my own two little ones.
Self-care is also high on my priority list, whether that be going for a walk, pampering myself with a facial or manicure, or enjoying a delicious meal and wine with friends at an amazing restaurant. Post-pandemic, these luxuries feel all the more special and meaningful to me.
