My Ideal Client

Often we come to therapy because some area of our life feels disconnected. This can be in relationship to others, ourselves, our environment, or to something much larger. It is generally through life experiences, family, culture and things that are usually beyond our control that we develop maladaptive ways of connecting. We generally lose trust in ourselves and/or the world around us. We come to therapy when we begin to see these ways as no longer serving us.

My Background

I hold a masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College as well as certificate in Ecopsychology. This framework speaks to the recognition of the connections between the mental health of the client with the overall health of the culture and the planet. Along with this I have completed professional training from M.E.T.A in Hakomi Body Centered Psychotherapy, EMDR and Equine assisted psychotherapy through EAGALA certification and Natural Lifemanships Trauma focused equine assisted psychotherapy. I have worked in the mental health field since 2007, including wilderness therapy, residential treatment, private practice and outpatient counseling clinics. Along with my experience in counseling I am a certified yoga teacher and have traveled the country teaching trauma informed yoga trainings for many years. I received my bachelor’s degree from Prescott College in human development as well as dance.

My Approach to Helping

My approach is mindfulness-based, and experiential, meaning that I will help you deepen your awareness of the specific ways you experience yourself, others, and the world around you. I will guide and support you in cultivating compassion and acceptance towards yourself and others, so that you feel empowered to make the positive changes you desire in your life.

Techniques I Use


  • EcoTherapy External link

    Ecotherapy, also known as nature therapy, is the applied practice of the emergent field of ecopsychology. An ecotherapist understands that people are part of the web of life, and approaches clients from the perspective that our psyches are not isolated or separate from our environment. As Eco-therapist's we pay attention to our clients relationship with all the systems we are part of and the ways this impacts them. The majority of the work we do with clients at Heron Hill takes place outdoors.

  • EMDR External link

    EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.

  • Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) External link

    Equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is the combined use of horses, a licensed therapist and a horse specialist all working together with clients to address various individual psychotherapy treatment goals. This unique method enables clients to learn about themselves through their experience and relationship with horses.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    In a somatic approach, the information the body conveys is welcomed. Together we pay close attention to the messages your body is sending. Somatic approaches to therapy understand the ways our bodies digest experiences and utilize this understanding to inform the healing process. A somatic orientation to therapy integrates healing at an embodied level often allowing for progress and changes to happen more sustainably.
