Live in the moment~*

Are you looking for support with anxiety, fears, depression, or divorce?  It takes courage to ask for help. Admitting you can’t do everything on your own is the first step towards wellness in our fast paced and demanding world.  Stop waiting for the future and make changes today.  Moments go by quickly; practicing self-acceptance and HOPE allows us to live more  congruently in the moment.

The good news is- asking for help gets easier with a little practice.  😉 The way we navigate through our life is influenced by our unique world view. Welcoming support and obtaining a fresh perspective is the first and most profound step toward developing the strategies that we need to become stronger. The more support you gain, the better equipped you will be to take on bigger challenges and achieve more successes!

Horses and Healing is making Ecotherapy an option in central Pennsylvania


The Benefits of Therapy in Nature at Horses and Healing

Family and Individual Therapy is effective in providing the necessary support and practice to overcome life’s challenges. I firmly believe the we already have the answers for what has been effective for us during past times of distress.  Sometimes we just need a bit more practice or reminders to see how we can use what we know in our current situation.  By engaging in therapy, you are taking responsibility to change what no longer functions well in your life.  Studies have shown that strengths-based therapy, much like what you will experience at Horses and Healing, is a useful way to develop skills to make managing life’s “ups and downs” a bit easier.

As an experienced Marriage and Family therapist, I am honored to travel with you on your path to wellness. I will walk beside you as we explore what is a good fit for you as well as help you choose how to make positive changes moving toward a more fulfilling life.  Many people have found my approach of using a Solution-Focused Brief Therapy foundation that incorporates elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness,  and family systems theory helpful and comfortable.  Being at Walnut Hollow Farm allows us to engage in Experiential  modalities in nature and Animal Assisted Therapy to discover the most beneficial route for you.

Come experience a therapeutic relationship with honesty, compassion, and transparency! Ground yourself and engage with animals and nature at Walnut Hollow Farm to facilitate your comfort.  Explore Ecotherapy! Would you like to practice mindfulness in the meadow? Challenge your inhibitions while grooming one of the horses?  Share your successes while listening to the purring of a friendly cat in your lap?  Let’s explore your options together. The goal of our therapy sessions will be to discover what you need and what you want to be different about your life experience. Become a more productive and happier YOU in the present!
