I am passionate about trauma healing beyond cognitive understanding, and the nervous systems influence on the relationship we have to ourselves and others.

I provide a safe space to assist people in renegotiating the neurobiological aspects of trauma. We focus on calming the mind, stimulating the brain to navigate challenging issues with greater ease, which significantly helps in being able to regulate emotions.

My clients describe me as calm and compassionate with a flair for fun. Life is too short and precious to be burdened by old manure; I’ve got you, and you’ve got this.

Equine Guidance® with my three horses, Mimi, Penny, and Salsa, resolves stress and unpleasant life experiences by guiding the felt-self or autonomic nervous system into greater coherence. Horses know your story and desire for a new way of being. Horses need no guidance in resolving symptoms of post-traumatic stress. With two decades of experiential evidence, the four of us will help you resolve trauma from your neurobiology.

A pioneer in my field, I have worked professionally in Equine Experiential Learning and therapy since 1998. I hold a master’s degree in counseling, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My resume of extensive educational experience, certifications, accolades, and observed successes has established Equine Guidance® as one of the most sought-after experiential trauma healing programs in the world. My full-time work in therapeutic boarding schools for adolescents since 2012 has provided me with extensive experience working with complex PTSD, attachment issues, and developmental and shock trauma.
