About

I enjoy helping people face obstacles in their lives and look at opportunities. I focus on assisting clients to develop their own individual action plan. Together we focus on solutions to reaching their goals. I believe it is important to meet your client where they are, and work from there. Everyone moves at their own pace, but people only change as they feel safe. It is very difficult to let go of old problematic behaviors until you have developed new constructive alternative behaviors. Developing your individual toolbox of coping strategies is a challenge all people face. We all have our own issues, they're just different.
I have been a therapist for over 3 decades and I love my work. I enjoy helping people get happy, set goals and meet them. It is extremely rewarding to challenge clients to dream big, take risks and reach their potential. To get there means building self esteem, self confidence, resilience and courage.
I believe animals are great healers and I often utilize horses and dogs in developing a clients strengths, empathy, compassion and trust. Specifically, horses can teach us a lot about dealing with anxiety due to their extreme sense of fight or flight. I work in a non-traditional setting in the country on a horse ranch in an old farmhouse.
