"Has life been feeling particularly hard lately-feeling "blue" or just anxious and too stressed? Relationship difficulties? As an experienced, trusted therapist, I am here to help. I can offer you both traditional "inside office" talk therapy and/or a unique "alternative" outdoors therapy- EQUINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY. Because horses are so attuned to their environment, they provide extremely accurate feedback or "mirrors" for our human feelings and relational dynamics. Horses facilitate "mindfulness" and help people to QUICKLY learn more about about themselves leading to substantial change and healing. I offer individual, couples, family, group therapy and/or EAP."

"I have a holistic, outside-the-box approach to psychotherapy. I seek to illuminate your internal world, while helping you connect to yourself, others and the world in a meaningful way. I work to build an authentic, trusting relationship with you, and aim to embody warmth, optimism, curiosity and empathy. My focus is psychoanalytic, meaning we will explore how your early experience shaped the way you see yourself and the world, because this often determines how your life unfolds now. We will crawl into the matrix together and re-shape your core beliefs to find you greater health and joy."

"Therapy doesn’t feel like an occupation. It is a calling. I consider it a sacred place to sit with others as they heal and grow. Over the past 20 years I have had the opportunity to engage with teens and young adults as a teacher, mentor and now as a therapist. My life experience combined with my education has equipped me to meet with a variety of people. You can come with your struggles, whatever they may be - grief, depression, anxiety, divorce, traumatic experience, eating issues, body distortion, sexuality, self-destructive behavior, cultural, Christianity/spirituality - and enter into a safe place to receive treatment.

"Maybe you are coping with a stressful pregnancy? Or grappling with the loss of one? Are you postpartum, feeling unsure, worried, irritable, sad, unable to sleep even when the baby sleeps? Or perhaps, you are further along the parenting continuum, supporting your child through the various developmental stages - toddlerhood, adolescence and beyond. Is that meltdown normal? How do I help my daughter with difficult friendships? Is my teen's behavior typical? How do I tackle their constant internet use? Or maybe you simply want to empower yourself or your child with healthy emotional tools now to prevent potential issues later."

"People come to therapy for many different reasons. A common thread among people's unique circumstance is the feeling of being "lost" or "stuck". Also, you may feel emotional pain and discomfort. Together we can identify and address the obvious and not-so-obvious patterns in life, such as engaging in unsatisfying relationships, or having difficulty following through with life or career projects. Therapy can provide you with the tools and insight to make meaningful changes in your life and in your most important relationships, and develop a deeper sense of self-knowledge and awareness."
