“Life is about accepting the challenges along the way, choosing to keep moving forward, and savoring the journey.”

― Roy T. Bennett


I am a horse lover and have two senior horses who keep me very busy when I'm not in the office. I adopted them from a horse rescue three years ago. These two sweet, beautiful horses were very thin, lethargic and had sores on them when I first started to work with them. As time went on I got them healthy with care, good feed and a lot of love. They have also changed my life because they help me relax in healthy ways. There is a lot of physical labor involved in caring for my horses, as you can imagine, from cleaning their stalls, to feeding and grooming them. They are truly my joy and my Zen. 


My goal as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor is to help you achieve the healing and growth you want and I look forward to working with you! Call me for an appointment today.
