In my free time, I love to spend time with my 13-year-old Bay Arabian horse, Arisa. Arisa and I spend time together daily, and she has helped me improve my emotional awareness, communication skills, and overall confidence as a human being. I started out life afraid of horses, but with the help of a lot of horses and mentors, my fear has turned into love and respect. I try to be grateful for a horse’s time, presence, patience, and perspective in hopes to learn as much as I can from them. I take the same approach to my work with clients. I have immense gratitude for the time and effort people invest in their lives, and offer patience, strong support, and a calm presence in session. When I’m not binging Schitt’s Creek or Ozark, I love to read books, listen to podcasts, and invest energy into finding the meaning in the words.
