How I Work

The solution to many of our unique challenges lies within. As such, my role as a therapist is not to be an expert, but rather a guide to help people access their own strengths and resilience. Given that our bodies are sensitive instruments designed to take in the world - and often are dominated by the thoughts and demands of our minds - they contain a reservoir of healing. By entering into a relationship with a horse, myself, and the present moment, it is possible to quiet built up defenses, experience authenticity beyond thought, and tap into the precious wisdom locked within.

Why Horses?

During the therapy session you partner with horses to have an experience in the present moment. It is my belief that building a relationship with a horse will deepen your relationship with your self, others, and nature. Horses are sensitive, intuitive, social beings, who help to illuminate our patterns of relationship and behaviors by giving us immediate feedback. Through relationship, they offer the opportunity to learn, grow, and heal.

Body Awareness

Our bodies hold a wealth of information about who we are and where we’ve come from. As we become more aware of our bodily sensations, where we hold emotions and where we feel pain and tightness, we can begin to work through patterns and trauma that have been held as memory in the body.



“The body never lies.” - Martha Graham

Wilderness

We have looked to nature for teachings and healing throughout history. We have ventured into the wilderness in search of vision, clarity, and connection. In today's world, technology and the complexity of our day-to-day existence insulates us from the wilderness and can cause us to forget our true nature. Returning to the wilderness helps us to slow down and move with mindfulness and self-awareness. It supports us in remembering our greater purpose and meaning. Reconnecting with the natural world imparts a strength and wisdom that we can internalize and apply to the challenges created by society, human relationships, and career. Being in nature and in the company of horses allows us to tap into the deepest part of our selves and feel a connection to everything around us. We can then begin to truly be in relationship with our selves and others.
