About

With over 8 years' experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings, I am qualified to work with children, adolescents, families, and adults. My preferred clients are children and adolescents and their families; however, I truly enjoy the young adult and middle aged women I have been privileged to work with as private clients. My passion is equine assisted psychotherapy, as well as any therapy involving animals, and my strength is empowering clients to gain the knowledge and skills they need to make lasting positive changes in their lives!
I am certified by EAGALA to provide Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, and I am also trained to use EMDR as an effective intervention for trauma. I offer individual, family, and group therapy in a comfortable, non-traditional setting where clients are able to interact with many different animals as they prefer.
I own a group practice in the northeast Bartlett area: Second Chance Ranch Counseling and Equine Therapy, LLC (see Psychology Today listing). My colleagues and I seek to serve our community by offering non-traditional interventions and support for families, children and adults struggling with mental health concerns. We are LGBTQ+ friendly!
