Horses have always been a major role in her life growing up and as an adult. Facilitated Experiential Equine Learning (FEEL) / Equine Facilitated Therapy (EFT) have allowed her to fuse together traditional therapy and experience with her passion and love for horses to offer a unique opportunity for transformative healing. Horses connect us though a deeper mind, body and spiritual connection to discover our own authentic self and stories. Come see what a horse as your teacher can offer you!
"I truly believe in the alternative based healing that horses provide which is achieved through the creation of a sacred and supportive space that is heart-centered and soul led with the horse playing the role of an integral partner in this process. Horses offer humans a sense of strength, freedom, vitality and compassion. I have seen and received the teachings and transformations horses can offer and hope to share this with you. Come experience this journey with a horse teacher, and embrace a new way of being. Radiate your brilliance and stand in your shining!"
"Outside of my work I enjoy spending time with my horses, the farm and reconnecting with nature as my healing and quiet time!"
