I am a licensed professional counselor and owner of a nonprofit, Hooves and Hands experienced in providing equine assisted psychotherapy and learning besides traditional office counseling.

I have experience working with a variety of populations and cultures in the community and school settings with issues that vary from life circumstance changes, and emotional, mental, social, and behavior issues.
