Through her extensive training of working with the physical and energetic bodies, Trudy is prepared to offer a very holistic approach to healing. Through her professional training and her own personal experience, she understands we are most whole when we allow all our bodies to speak...physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
In her spare time, Trudy loves to sing and dance, to take luxurious excursions into nature, listen to the stories of inspiring movies and books, write poetry, and practice yoga, Tai Chi, and toning. She attends meditation and spiritual gatherings on a regular basis with her friends. She finds that, through these practices and activities, she lives a more balanced and inspiring life from which to help others.
