Would you like to experience more joy in your life and relationships? I can help you get unstuck, stop living from fear, learn how to trust again, regain or improve your self-esteem, and simply work on feeling better. I offer sessions in the more-than-human world, out in the fresh air, supported by nature in a private space and/or in the wonderful healing presence of horses. SpiritedScience® programs offer solace in the spirit(s) of nature and are especially appropriate for those who may not thrive in a conventional psychotherapy setting. I also offer virtual sessions in inclement weather, for those who prefer not to work with horses (or walk-and-talk), or those who prefer not to/cannot travel.

I am a transpersonal mental health counselor, hypnotherapist, shamanic teacher, and former classroom teacher dedicated to helping my clients develop the skills and understanding to improve their relationships with self and others. I am also a certified clinical trauma professional and work with clients from a trauma-informed perspective. I specialize in nature-based and equine-assisted psychotherapy for teens, adults, and couples.

I can help you develop healthy relationship patterns and/or effectively deal with grief, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, and addiction. You can experience personal growth after acute, chronic, or complex trauma. I can guide you through the integration of the physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual aspects of Self that is necessary to be whole, assist you in making meaning out of tragedy or abuse, foster resilience, & hold a safe space for you while we work together to heal your soul loss.
