About My Clients

My heart is racing again, and I can not catch my breath. I am just sitting down at work. I went to the doctor, and he said I was okay. I have been several times; lately, I know they are tired of seeing me. I do not want to go again. Last time, the nurse gave me some paperwork about something, but I did not read it. Through therapy, we can change this, ease the pounding heart, and change the anxiety to the excitement for life and what is to come. Life really can be better.

My Background and Approach

My experience with therapy is one of collaboration with the client. I want to know what specifically you want to gain from therapy your hopes dreams and expectations. I want to know where you stuck how you think got stuck and what is keeping you stuck. Those things will also help us to know what will help you move forward what will give you hope for the future and what has kept you grounded. Therapy is a process and journey, not a destination. I have many years of experience using many different modalities and I think that it is important to know when to use the different modalities. I often use animal-assisted activities with clients as clients often enjoy interacting with therapy dogs during sessions. I also use equine-assisted therapy and activity when appropriate. I will also use EMDR for sessions that it is appropriate. I will meet you where are we will find the best path forward for you to achieve your goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that people can change and have the capacity to do things differently. We want to do better. I believe just because things are simple does not mean they are easy. I became a therapist because I wanted to help people and make a difference in the world. I hope that we do not take ourselves too seriously and we do learn to take better care of each other. I think kindness for ourselves, each other, the planet, and the animals can go a long way to making the world a better place and making ourselves feel better. We are all connected and we are only here on this earth for a brief time learning to find the joy and beauty that surrounds every day is simple. I can help you see it and find it but remember it is not always easy.
