One of my passions is helping others identify and recognize the ways shame, blame and fear cause pain and reactivity in our lives.  I am certified in the Daring Way™, an experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. I love the way this work  helps clients use the research and concepts to reduce the negative effects of these feelings  in our lives, and shows us how to love ourselves through the process of acceptance and creating connection in our lives.
My story includes healing from trauma, as a result I found myself interested in EMDR.  I am EMDR trained. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. It combines different elements to maximize treatment effects.

My love of horses, something that gives me joy and connects me to me, is also a passion I have moved into my professional life.  I am an EAGALA certified equine psychotherapist.  This experiential methodology uses ground work with horses to create insight and healing in a vast array of issues. 

Know if you are working with me I lead with my values, which include faith, connection, honesty and beauty.  I find therapy a creative journey and we are all a work in progress. 

I look forward to connecting with you.
