I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who believes interactions with animals supports the healing process and invites you to experience this unique opportunity.
I believe in hope. It keeps us afloat, keeps us moving forward. I believe in connection. It keeps us balanced, knowing we are not in this alone. Relationships matter. We’re designed for them. They can help us feel safe, and when we feel safe, we are on our way to becoming who we are meant to be. It takes courage and humility. And hope. Always hope.
I’m a social worker. I love being a social worker – getting to experience the ups and downs of living life with others. I consider it a privilege to be trusted with the painful times as well as the victories.
I attended school at Texas A&M University and received a Bachelor’s in Recreation and Parks. After working in a recreation program at a counseling agency, I decided to get a Master’s of Science in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin. I have spent the majority of my career working with children and families in the child protection system in Texas and Colorado. It has been an honor to support children and parents in their stressful and challenging times.
I am certified in Animal-Assisted Therapy, Activities, and Learning through Denver University. Animals can have a significant role in our lives. They are non-judgmental, supportive and honest. They can help us be brave, calm and open to healing. Ellie is my canine partner and is available to spend time with those who would like to know her. If you prefer horses, that’s an option too. Both Ellie and the horses are eager to participate in your healing process. We look forward to meeting you.
