About

Are you looking for a unique way to reduce stress and anxiety? Are you ready to rediscover your strengths and learn new ways of coping? Or are you looking for someone to help guide & support you through some of life's transitions that might be causing distance in your relationships? Allow me to introduce you to a different way of being in the natural world to grow and heal.
I have specialized education, training, and experience to provide a unique form of therapy called equine-assisted psychotherapy, aka equine therapy. My goal is to facilitate a relationship between you and the horse to serve as a metaphor and agent for change. This relationship is built through ground activities, no riding involved.
Equine-assisted psychotherapy is a form of mental health counseling and can be provided as the sole form of counseling or may be used in conjunction with other behavioral healthcare services. Research has shown that interactions in outdoor settings with animals help decrease anxiety, stress, depression, and increase clarity.
