About

I have 30 years experience with youth, families, adults and school staff. Multiple trainings on body based approach to healing trauma, and increasing resiliency zone. Clients discover their identity, as I mine hearts to find/extract the ore treasured within. Raised on a cattle ranch: I am practical, hard working and love the outdoors. My joy is to help the afflicted , the broken hearted and proclaim liberty to captives. I love using metaphor to clarify vision/focus around personal and crisis issures. I am a Christian, believing in the Bible / prayer and will gladly integrate in the process if requested.
Grief and Loss- Internship with Hospice & I lost a son; Battered Women- Left a negative relationship. The healing process allowed discovery of Inner Strength & Power now available for you. PTSD/ Trauma - Body-based trauma focused. I help Christians discover peace/joy with Papa and freedom. Depression/Mental Illness/Suicide - success with clients
I was living in subsidized housing and on welfare while working on my Masters Degree. Several family members had mental illness. A family member committed suicide. In Denver CO, I led a suicide prevention art group. I experienced the pain of divorce. Having moved over 25 times, I empathize with the the disruption of relocation. Nature is healing
