"Trisha is a master of energy medicine, lifestyle and mindfulness. Just talking to her you will find a calmness that is absolutely contagious. Wonderful woman with an uncommon gift of relaxation and serenity." A.C., Virginia

"I felt like I was on my last nerve and came in to Trishas treatment room a wreck. With her calm, professional, assuring presence I immediately relaxed. Not only was I able to leave feeling grounded and peaceful, I also came away with knowledge about myself that I can use. Thank you, Trisha!" E.J., Virginia

"The new location for Mother Bear is a spacious, relaxing place to visit Trisha. Even though I've moved out of town, I still return to work with her!" J.S., Washington D.C.
