RACHEL W. BUSH PH.D.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1989 with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. After completing my APA approved Internship, I did specialty training in trauma, depression, anxiety and addiction at The New York Hospital -Cornell Medical Center. Following my graduation from Fellowship I stayed on as a Clinical Instructor of Psychology in Psychiatry at Cornell University Medical College and Professional Associate (Psychology) at The New York Hospital. I continued to teach and supervise Psychology and Psychiatric trainees for over 20 years.
In 1991 I started a private practice in Fairfield County, Connecticut. In addition to being a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Connecticut, I also became licensed in New York. In 1994 I began my clinical practice in Westchester. I have been an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at New York Medical College since 2013.
THE MIND-BODY CONNECTION
My interest in Neuroscience and evidenced based treatment for trauma led me to expand my clinical training on resiliency building. In order to focus on mind-body wellness I initially studied with Yoganand Michael Carroll at The Kripalu Center for Yoga and Healing in 2016. I learned about the neurobiologic benefits of yoga and continued in the Pranakriya traditition and obtained my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Pranakriya School of Yoga and Healing Arts.
I am registered with the Yoga Alliance and completed my Trauma Informed Training through Exhale to Inhale. I feel privileged to bring the healing practice of trauma-informed yoga to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault as a teacher for Exhale to Inhale. I also offer private virtual livestream yoga classes and guided meditations.
