My Approach to Helping
My philosophy is that everyone has the potential within themselves to live a happy and fulfilling life. We all experience unhappiness and sorrow, the key is to understand the root causes that created the beliefs that keep you stuck in unhappiness. I use a conventional office setting, as well as an arena and a horse as my partner.
My modalities of therapy are; psycho-dynamic (talk therapy), solution-focused therapy, reality therapy, and person-centered therapy. I also use equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP), and equine assisted learning (EAL).
Horses are masters at mindfulness. They live their lives in the here and now, and that's what makes them such valuable partners in a therapy session. They naturally bring clients into the present moment where they can step out of their troubles and begin to learn a new way of seeing the world and their life.
