If you are reading this, chances are you're feeling stuck, confused, misunderstood...at odds with someone you love. Perhaps you feel that you have tried everything that you know how to do, or you don't know what to try. Take heart. Therapy is a special opportunity to manifest the life, work, & relationships that you most deeply want. I have 30 plus years in the medical and counseling field. I am a seasoned therapist, couples counselor, individual and play therapist.
Life presents opportunities for change and we all have the ability to grow from this change though self discovery. I believe that it takes courage to be active in guiding change toward personal growth. My goal is to create an environment where real and sustained growth is possible.
In addition to traditional counseling, I use experiential methods including Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy incorporates horses experientially for mental and behavioral health therapy and personal development. It is a collaborative effort between a licensed therapist who is a horse professional working with the clients and horses to address therapy goals.
There are several aspects of cognitive/equine-assisted therapy that work well with kids who have emotional and behavioral issues, One of the simplest aspects is diversion. When a young person is focused on grooming, feeding or exercising a horse, his focus is no longer on his own issues and problems. Older children benefit from interaction with horses too. Troubled teens can be in a state of aggression, defiance or anger. Using horse therapy with teens helps maintain a constant and healthy chemical balance. Horses provide troubled youth with an opportunity to learn how to control and work with animals.”
