About My Clients

Do you feel your life is out of control? Do you find yourself constantly facing the same challenges? Do you feel stuck? Let's work together to create the life you desire. I believe relationships are fundamental to health and happiness, and healing occurs in connection. I have supported adults and teens through low self-esteem, self-criticism, trauma, depression, anxiety, and life transitions for years. My talent lies in supporting you to access your inner resources and create a thriving life.

My Background and Approach

I believe that healing happens in relationship. Whether your goal is to feel better emotionally, develop as a person, or address family and relationship challenges, we will take into account your bigger picture – how your experiences are impacted by the many systems you are connected to. I use evidence-based and collaborative methods to facilitate healing and transformation in sessions. I focus on what's working in your life and seek ways to help you expand possibilities. My role is to support you in accessing the critical resources you already possess to discover your wisdom, knowing, and answers. In addition to talk therapy, I am an Eagala Certified Equine Therapist trained to implement a distinctive experiential model that provides the latitude to learn and grow from the horse-human relationship. Through this framework, you will learn about yourself and others by engaging with horses while exploring thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and patterns.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe our most difficult struggles are our greatest opportunities for wisdom and growth. I don’t believe everything happens for a reason, but I do believe we can find meaning in the things that happen. I believe each person, family, and relationship already possesses the necessary resources for change. I believe life shouldn’t be taken too seriously and that humor is a tool for healing. My role is to support your journey of continual growth and learning along a path of personal discovery. I believe people are intrinsically motivated to fulfill an innate desire of self-actualization. To do this, we move up a spiral of increasingly advanced needs, learning how to support ourselves through each one before transitioning to the next. Sometimes we must revisit a lesson several times before we can move on. Sometimes we get stuck. I will support you to access your knowing of the way to break through unhelpful patterns and continue growing along your path.
