About the author
Trina Carroll-Houk is a spiritual teacher, counselor, and founder of Breaking Free Boundaries, LLC who specializes in self-awareness, mindfulness, and the spiritual dimension of being. Her goal is to help people improve their quality of life so they can experience inner peace, meaningful purpose, and fulfillment. Trina represents a movement focused on helping people release what limits them from transforming into awakened beings with a higher sense of spiritual consciousness.
Trina's professional experience primarily comes from serving as an instructor at leading universities, a spiritual teacher and counselor in her practice, as well as a teacher in the public schools. Because of her own personal experience of great loss, growth, and recovery, she shares the process she went through in a course she developed and published in "Breaking Free from the Ego: A Course in Finding and Freeing Yourself." In this course, Trina uses personal inner and outer boundaries as a tool to teach people how to free themselves from a split existence in which most of us live our lives. It's her greatest desire that others will also discover their true identity, learn how to live in inner peace, as well as break free from the pain and suffering that holds them back from reclaiming the abundant life that's waiting for them now.
According to Trina, too often we get caught living a split life between two worlds. We become lost trying to live life in both our inner and outer worlds. In this place of confusion, we have no idea how to enjoy living life in inner peace, in the present moment. The Breaking Free Process she offers in the book helps the reader to discover their true identity and the one authentic life as they learn what's false. In her work, she teaches people how to gain authority over their lives by recognizing, neutralizing, and moving beyond the conditioned, unconsciousness experienced through the ego's voice of fear and doubt. Trina's goal is to help others learn how to overcome negative thoughts, challenging emotions, and reactive behavior that holds them back. Mastering the ego mind gives us the quality of life we desire most. Trina says, "When we learn how to quiet our mind by getting to know exactly who we are, we can connect to the consciousness of our true inner self that transcends the spiritually unconscious, split mind of the false ego self. This is where we break free to live in a state of inner peace all the time."
Trina has a private practice in Largo, Florida, where she offers individual and group sessions.
