Experience more joy in your life and relationships! Get unstuck, stop living from fear, learn how to trust again, regain or improve your self-esteem, and simply work on feeling better. Have your sessions in the more-than-human world, out in the fresh air, supported by nature in a private space and/or in the wonderful healing presence of horses, or by teletherapy if you prefer. My SpiritedScience® programs offer solace in the spirit(s) of nature and are especially appropriate for those who may not thrive in a conventional psychotherapy setting.

Treatment Approach

  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior (DBT)
  • Existential/Humanistic
  • Experiential
  • Feminist
  • Gottman Method

  • Person-Centered
  • Psychoeducational
  • Transpersonal
Approach Description: My approach is person-centered, positive, feminist, Jungian, existential, and transpersonal. One size does not fit all, and I utilize various approaches, deciding with each individual what feels right and necessary for their own growth and healing. I am aware of the various systems (racial, socioeconomic, patriarchal) that many of us live in and must navigate, as well as how they might affect a person's well-being. I am an advocate and ally for the marginalized, including women, BIPOC, and the LGBTQIA+ population. My style of communication is direct and honest, and I will challenge you sometimes in order to help facilitate introspection and growth, but I will also provide a safe and caring environment for our explorations together.
