July 2020: I'm thankful for all the empaths and highly sensitive women reaching out looking for support during these intense times, and it's difficult to turn anyone away. However, I'm unable to accept any new clients and most likely won't be able to until 2021.

an eagala model personal development program focused on mindfulness,
true consent and kind boundaries
Humanistic counseling for Highly Sensitive People (HSP) age 15 and older. We will go at your pace and I will hold space for you to heal from trauma and address experiences common to HSPs, such as anxiety, depression, perfectionism and co-dependency. My style is casual, intuitive and holistic, meaning that we'll look at all aspects of your life to find your solutions. We can meet in the rustic office in the Sundance Center barn, do an Eagala-model horse session, therapeutic art expression or we can talk via Skype.
Expressing yourself through art provides an alternative way to communicate difficult feelings and project your inner life outside yourself. Therapeutic art can reach the subconscious for improved self awareness and insights, provide release for pent up emotions, and it may help bypass our internal censors and resistance to healing. Art can help solve problems, promote hope and creativity elsewhere in your life - and it can be a lot of fun! You don't have to have artistic ability to benefit. Disclaimer: I'm not a certified/registered Art Therapist but I have a combination of training, continuing education and art experiences to confidently offer this kind of therapy.
Eagala Model equine assisted personal growth is an experiential approach to therapy involving ground-based activities with horses. Through interacting with horses, you will be able to find your unique solutions and discover real and lasting change. We are Eagala certified, use a team approach and follow professional ethical guidelines. This model is solution oriented, which means that we believe you have your own answers if given a safe and non-judgmental environment in which to find them. In addition to equine assisted therapy, we also offer equine assisted professional development in collaboration with This Craft Nation, a leadership consultant. For more information, please see below.
Horses are highly sensitive prey animals, and as such can teach us much about ourselves and our sensitivities. They are highly in tune with their surroundings and the emotions of others, yet, if supported and in the right environment, they thrive effortlessly.
