Announcement icon Your safety is important to me. My office, in a semi-rural setting, enables safe distancing, outdoor appointments, and teletherapy.
I'm currently accepting clients for marriage & relationship therapy (couple or individual). I offer regular "office therapy" for couples; I also offer equine-facilitated therapy, which incorporates work outdoors with horses to help anxiety, PTSD, depression, and relationship skills. We intuitively know that authentic, healthy relationships lie at the core of human experience, but this doesn’t mean it’s easy to get there! Past experiences leave scars and mistrust, even mistrust in ourselves. Your struggles with relationships are welcome here! Regain trust in yourself & find your wisdom in trusting others. Free phone consultation.
My specialties integrate somatic, cognitive-behavioral, and proven mindfulness strategies which I have been practicing & teaching for 25 years. Modern research shows us why and how mindfulness offers keys for strengthening relationship bonds and mental health. Equine therapy is extremely helpful for identifying implicit beliefs that affect relationships.
I'm grateful for a unique career that includes animals and nature into my therapy and teaching services. It has made me a more skilled therapist, and given me a great belief in the power of connection - connection with ourselves, with each other, and with a higher power. I am Christian, and I welcome all spiritual beliefs and stages of spiritual journey .
