I believe that horses are among the greatest healers. My passion is to help others find and accept their authentic selves – even those parts that have been lost, wounded, or hidden underneath pain, suffering, and addiction. Horses are experts at this work. They reflect the truth of ourselves back to us, without fear, judgment, or expectations. Horses offer us genuine connection, which I believe is the powerful beginning to any journey of healing. My eclectic approach is focused on applying various experiential and expressive techniques such as equine-assisted therapy, sand tray, play therapy, art therapy, and sensory therapies. My approach to healing is one that considers each person as a whole, taking into consideration the body, mind, and spirit.
I am an EAGALA Certified Mental Health Professional (MH). I am also a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I have been in the mental health field since 2005, and have worked with a number of populations including survivors of domestic violence, adult individuals and couples, elementary, middle school, and university students, children with physical, developmental, and cognitive impairments, and those in recovery from addiction. I currently specialize in substance abuse, 12-step recovery, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I am a trained EMDR Therapist.
