I am an honest, “what you see is what you get” kind of person. I have a warm, authentic approach that helps my clients build trust easily. I thrive in outdoor settings and love camping and hiking in the natural beauty of ldaho’s lakes and mountains. Currently, I live in the country with my husband, three kids, dog, cow, and two horses. I am a volunteer Sunday School teacher for teens at my church and enjoy the slower lifestyle nature has to offer.
Through my years of experience in working with people of various backgrounds, I have found the best results come not from talking in an office, but in hands on approaches. For this reason, I was certified in equine assisted psychotherapy. Horses give people a lot of honest feedback. They help us learn to calm our minds and bodies down. When you learn to calm yourself with a horse, you can calm yourself in any situation. Horses will also teach you truths about how you handle conflict and relate to others.
Training in a values-based program was a high priority for me; therefore, I
received my master’s degree at Liberty University in a program that integrated Christianity with psychology. I believe true and lasting healing comes through Christ. I believe God does not heal people who do not reach out to Him and others for help, and that He also expects us to put the work into our own healing.
