Counselor, MS, LCPC, EAGALA, II
As a relationship counselor, my goal is to move you to "hold onto yourself" and embrace your partner/kids/parents. I hope that you will be patient with yourself-because we grow exceedingly slowly. Stop wasting time lacking forward movement with your life. Going forward will cost you. Progress and personal growth always do. It may cost cherished beliefs. It will cost you the "self" you've been - to become who you want to be. You may already be facing some more choices not because your marriage or family is flawed but because it's part of marriages natural process.
You may want or need a therapist who keeps you productively uncomfortable. I can do a lot more than emphasize or teach communication skills. I can monitor important topics to keep you on track, help you observe the process, and assist in modulating and containing anxiety in your family system.
I understand the importance of availability. I work confidentially with selective clients to ensure focus and quality. I can be available to you when issues arise; coaching you through critical relational moments, when learning and changing is at its peak potential. Family, couples, individuals (talk, equine facilitated and art therapy).

EQUINE ASSISTED THERAPY SPECIALIST
'WORK-a-DAY' Kids intro to 3R's
Christian based with multiple time slots available, 3-4 kids, ages 6-10. A unique and productive therapy in a country setting. This group is perfect for any child and especially those with ADHD and on the Asperger's spectrum. Children move and explore in a semi structured, always connected, safe farm environment. Hands on exploration inspires, motivates and builds esteem and identity. Joyful, positive and natural consequences result from the lost art of farm life. Small obstacles teach and refine effort, creativity and fortitude. Healthy habits are formed by practicing the 3 R's of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and RELIABILITY.
