"Let go of who you think you should be and embrace who you are."
MY TAKE ON THERAPY
I feel that sometimes life hits us with situations, emotions, and people we just can't handle all on our own. Having someone to lend a listening ear and offer some unbiased support and compassion can make all the difference in times like these.
I find it most helpful to explore emotions and look at what they are telling us, talk about shame (it’s ok if you cringe in response to that word), work to increase self-compassion and set goals that align with the work and personal betterment you are hoping to do.
I appreciate that opening up to someone new is a difficult thing to do and how important it is to build a comfortable rapport and relationship with your therapist. My promise to you is that I will do my very best to facilitate this.

EQUINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY
When words aren't enough

This type of therapy is applicable for most therapy goals and can have an incredible impact.
