Short Description (199 characters max)
We specialize in helping teens heal & grow through the power of the Human-Animal Connection.
Description (2950 characters max)
Being a teenager is tough. Navigating new roles, responsibilities, friendships, and self identity can be overwhelming. Many teens are struggling with big emotions such as feeling anxious, alone, angry, judged, and discouraged but they don't want to talk about it. I can support your child in developing emotional understanding and real life skills to move forward with confidence. My passion is assisting children and teens develop their true connection to self and others through the primary medium of Animal-Assisted Therapy. I also throughly enjoy working with children and pre-teens.
Animal Assisted Therapy allows children and teens to enter into a judgement free zone, build healthy relationships, and gain feelings of self-mastery. Through hands on, interactive activities, they develop effective coping and communication skills. They leave sessions standing taller, communicating assertively, setting healthy boundaries, and believing in themselves.
I understand choosing a therapist can be a daunting process and it's so important to find someone your child can relate to. I offer 20 minute phone consultations to see if I'm the right fit for you. I look forward to exploring how I can support your family.
