Dance/Movement Therapy, and Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy are my therapeutic modalities, and they are what has supported many of my clients on a journey towards health. They are alternative and yet evidenced based. They are expressive in nature and lead to a present moment focus. In session with me, whether you are a couple seeking support, a teen struggling with suicidal ideation or self-harming behaviors, or an adult with anxiety and/or depression, I offer a safe place to explore your strengths, express your authentic self, and help you find a way to work through your most uncomfortable emotions. If these approaches to therapy interest you, I gently urge you to contact me for a free 1/2 consultation.

More Info About My Practice
You may be wondering: "What is dance/movement therapy? Or, What is equine-facilitated psychotherapy? Well, there are many ways I could describe these modalities, but what I feel is the most simple way to understanding how these modalities are therapeutic rests in the word embodiment. Dance/movement therapy is based off the premise that our bodies are connected to our cognitive abilities, and inviting your body to help in the healing process, reaches a more wholeness in the human experience. In Equine-facilitated psychotherapy, embodiment shows up in the reflection of the horse. Horses have the ability to read all or most of our vital signs, thus helping us connect to the feelings and sensations we can sometimes overlook.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Choosing a therapist is much harder than one might imagine, and is an extremely important part of the process towards health. I would suggest meeting several therapist before choosing one. Many therapist will offer free consultations. It's a time you get to feel into the space your sessions will take place, ask them questions about their approaches, fees, and anything else that may be important for you. How you feel in that initial visit, will hopefully provide you with enough insight to support you in making a choice about your health that will support the change you desire.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Many years ago, I started the path to becoming a therapist as a dancer. My body became my instrument of expression, and as I began to connect to it, listen to it, trust it, discover it, I found I healed myself of old wounds. I knew then that I was meant to support others in finding a connection to their bodies for the purposes of healing. When I was offered a position as an intern learning equine-facilitated psychotherapy, I soon realized horses had more to teach me about embodiment then I ever could have imagined, and they are still teaching me today.
