****Taking New & Former Clients**** I work with all kinds of clients, but I tend to work well with clients struggling with relational issues, anxiety, depression, & trauma. I work with a lot of people looking to improve their self-empowerment in their relationships. I believe everyone has the capacity to grow & thrive with the right support. My approach to therapy is based on the idea that relationships are fundamental to the health & well-being of my clients. My role is to collaborate with & challenge my clients to help them change their life perspectives & exist in ways that bring them both happiness & empowerment.
I favor inclusion of family in sessions, whether given or chosen, to create & maintain support & understanding. I employ a variety of tools from different theoretical orientations, including Equine Assisted Therapy, to help clients overcome the issues they bring to session. Working with horses adds a level of support that is unmatched in talk therapy.
My goal is to meet you where you are in your life & offer a place for self exploration. Challenging yourself to feel motivated, in control, & confident in your abilities to achieve goals & overcome the inevitable obstacles along the way is what therapy is about. If you worked with me at a previous location & would like to continue, feel free to contact me!
