As a trusted champion of your growth and healing, I will:
- Listen to you, human to human
- Trust and help cultivate your own knowing of what’s best for you
- Offer trauma-informed, collaborative, and evidence-based treatment that gets to the root of the problem
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 honor your unique life experiences and identity and respect the expertise you bring to your story. I work toward aligning you with your authentic self by helping you connect to your existing strengths and inherent wisdom, develop insight about obstacles along your path, and identify solutions toward change. I focus on what’s working in your life and seek ways to help you expand possibilities.
I use an integrative style combining emotion-focused, attachment-based, and somatic (body-based) mindfulness approaches, parts work, and EMDR to help you get unstuck from unhelpful beliefs, patterns, and ways of being.
These evidence-based and collaborative methods facilitate healing and transformation in and out of sessions. My role is to support you in accessing the critical resources you already possess to discover your wisdom, knowing, and answers.
I don’t just provide sessions, I provide solutions – all within the context of a caring and collaborative partnership.
My services are available in office, at a barn, on trail, or via telehealth.
I am honored to walk beside you to provide authentic support, presence, and new awareness as we address root causes of emotional issues. I begin our work together by listening to you and hearing your story, and then giving you concrete tools to help you better understand your needs and wants, and free yourself from unhelpful patterns.
In individual counseling, I offer help to facilitate productive, positive movement along your journey around topics including low self-esteem, self-criticism, trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, and life transitions. Using somatic mindfulness approaches, we will bring awareness to patterns and beliefs that are preventing you from reaching your goals and feeling meaningfully connected to yourself and others.
In couple and family counseling, I use developmental and attachment-based models to support creating deeper connection and improving relationship satisfaction. By observing attachment styles in session, we explore the ways each person supports and co-regulates within the relationship, and use that information to practice making small shifts to create a stronger, closer connection.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
I am an Eagala Certified Equine Therapist trained to implement a distinctive experiential framework designed to provide you with the latitude to discover, learn, and grow from the horse-human relationship. Through this framework, you will learn about yourself and others by participating in physical activities involving horses while discussing thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and patterns. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is ground-based work and does not involve mounting or riding horses.
To evade predators, horses have evolved to be extremely sensitive to their environment. They instinctively analyze and react to our body language and other nonverbal cues, providing us with valuable feedback and insights for other areas of our lives. It’s hard to ignore a horse with their size and presence. We can’t just control a powerful horse. Approaching horses helps us reflect on how we approach our human relationships and how we can face other big or overwhelming parts of our lives. Horses are social animals with defined roles within a herd. They have distinct personalities, attitudes, and moods. They can be stubborn or they can be playful. In other words, horses are a lot like us.
Horses are the perfect partner.
Because horses are highly sensitive, clients can work through their life struggles by interacting with the horses without feeling judgment or interpretation by another person.
