My Quirky Self
What I lack in size, I make-up in personality! I am often described as a big kid at heart and a social butterfly! I’m fluent in French and have inherited the Italian passion for life! I am a true humanitarian and believe in animal rights! I enjoy being creative in more ways than one, and I need a little spontaneity each day to feel alive! I am horse obsessed (of course), soulful to the core with a universal sense of spirituality, love yoga, and am a community leader! Although I love shopping at thrift stores and rocking the boho chic look, I am working SO hard on ageing gracefully (sigh). I name the squirrels in my yard and love having my tea in the horse paddocks! At the very least, I will never bore you!
My Professional Background
I have a certification in equine-assisted healing, accreditation in the biopsychosocial approach at the counselling psychology masters level, a degree in occupational therapy, a certification in wellness/life coaching, level 2 Reiki, and a certified yoga instructor. I have also completed courses in expressive arts therapy. I have recently become a Behavioural Developmental Support Provider with Alberta Health’s FSCD (family support for children with disabilities) program. I have developed the unique practice of equine-assisted support©, launched a certification course to become a practitioner, and created the Canadian Academy of Equine-assisted Support©.
I strive to make all my clients feel safe by being welcoming to all abilities, culturally inclusive, and trauma conscious. I want to assist you in finding your horsePOWER so you can feel confident facing whatever life throws your way. I’m sure my horses and I can help!
