For as long as I can remember, I have always loved horses! I started riding when I was four years old in Spain, and competed in hunter/jumper from primary school in Europe through to university in the USA.
When I moved to Boulder, I earned a Bachelors Degree in Contemplative Psychology and a Masters Degree in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University. Since then, I have become a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Addictions Counselor, Certified Group Psychotherapist, and Approved Clinical Supervisor. I am the founding and executive director of a LGBTQ+ non-profit mental health organization, adjunct faculty at Naropa University, and I have a small equine-assisted therapy private practice. Supporting young people and their families is one of my favorite ways to serve the community. I have nineteen years of professional experience in the field of psychology, including post-graduate experience in wilderness therapy, canine and equine assisted therapies, residential treatment, and emergency psychiatric services.
For the last five years, I’ve had the joy of gentling and training my two young mustangs. Together, we volunteer with Boulder County Mounted Search and Rescue (BoCo MSAR) and enjoy trail riding all over the country.
