I am a TRH Mastery Practitioner and completed The Reflective Horse® Mastery Program.
After 20+ years of 12-step recovery and tons of traditional talk therapy, I began my journey with horses and experienced a profound healing. In their presence I was catapulted into a deeper understanding of my true nature and intuitive knowing. It was as if my DNA remembered the Truth, that I was perfect and always had been, despite what my mind told me. For years I ‘worked’ at staying true to myself, at finding my voice, but the ultimate shift occurred with horses. A somatic reprogramming. A path to freedom. Horses shared their wisdom with me and that was it — I knew I wanted to help others on the same journey.
My experience with horses has been varied — I volunteered and cared for a herd of ten horses and other animals at a private sanctuary in Topanga Canyon, CA. I went on to volunteer and then work for Skydog Ranch & Sanctuary in Malibu, CA with a focus on rescuing wild mustangs and burros. I also completed a training in mustang gentling at Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue.
I have 25 years of sobriety in Alcoholics Anonymous and am fully recovered from an eating disorder. I journeyed for 10 days in Joshua Tree at a Vipasanna meditation silent retreat and have a consistent practice. I communicate with animals, do yoga, play the occasional game of tennis, and am a vegan.
In January, 2021 I moved to rural Arroyo Grande on the central coast of California with my rescue pitbull Blue and cat Bella, to live and work with horses full time.
Over the years I’ve experienced and participated in other healing modalities & trainings that I often integrate into my current work and offerings.
