My practice is founded on creating a safe space for you to work on your most authentic, whole and healthy self. Aside from being a traditional mental health counselor since 2008, I have also been working as an equine assisted psychotherapist since 2012.
While I have mostly focused on counseling adolescents and adult individuals in the recovery from eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, I strongly believe in the importance finding your voice, acceptance of self, and awareness in the relational and cultural patterns influencing us.
Animals, particularly horses and dogs have had a strong influence in my life, and believe in the relational, mind-body and spiritual transformation that occurs in their presence. I take an experiential and relational approach, focused on mindfulness and self-discovery facilitated by our equine friends and teachers. I believe that the relationship with the horses will also help you deepen your relationship with yourself, not only in recovery, but way beyond.
