FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where are you located?

I am currently in Nosara, Costa Rica. I am glad to offer online sessions to support my clients from anywhere in the world.

How long are the sessions?

In-person or video conferencing sessions are 60 minutes in length. Equine coaching sessions are usually around 90 minutes. Sometimes the horses have their own idea about the length of time, and I let them weigh in!

What is the cost per session?

We will discuss pricing on our Discovery Call.  Pricing varies dependent on how long we work together and how payment is made.  Discounts available for packages.

How many sessions per month would I have with you?

I see clients for private coaching weekly for the first three weeks of every month. There is a three-month minimum to make sure we have time to do a good piece of work, and then we discuss month to month what is best for your needs.

Can I just do equine sessions?

At this time, equine coaching is braided into private coaching. My clients will often have an equine session once per month, on the 4th week when we do not have a private coaching session. Equine sessions are so rich, and one session gives us plenty to work with the rest of the month.

How do I set up an initial appointment?

The easiest way is to schedule a Discovery Call is through my website. It is a free call-in which I can hear your dreams, goals, and needs. We will together decide if I am a good fit, and if we agree we are, we will schedule our first session together.

What payment methods do you accept?

I accept cash, check, or Venmo. Venmo allows you to pay through your bank account or with a credit card if that is your preference. Most clients pay me the day of our session or monthly.

What is your professional training and experience?

I have a master’s in social work from Smith College and a Masters of Arts in Applied Healing Arts from Tai Sophia University (now the Maryland University of Integrative Health). I worked as a licensed clinical social worker for ten years and specialized in attachment wounding and treating trauma. My training included being an EMDR consultant, certification as a TRE (Tension and Trauma Release Exercises) facilitator, extensive training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and training in different equine therapy modalities, including Trauma-Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. My spiritual path has involved working with Muslim women on the coast of Kenya as an undergraduate; my Master’s degree from Tai Sophia, a program grounded in Daoism and Eastern Philosophy; two-month-long spiritual deepening courses at Oneness University in southern India; a year-long program learning a spiritual healing method developed by a Sufi practitioner and teacher; Spiritual Life Coaching certification with Awakened Academy (a year+ program) and hours and hours of meditation and internal spiritual inquiry. I brought my spiritual training together with my equine training in a year-long equine
facilitator mentorship program with Barbara Alexander of Epona Ridge.

Do you only work with women?

Many of my clients are cis-gendered women. That certainly is not a rule, however. I trust the energetics of those attracted to working with me and will work with anyone with a deep resonance.

How is coaching with you different than therapy?

As a therapist, I specialized in trauma and therefore had clients coming to me to resolve their trauma symptoms. Trauma recovery is sacred work. As a coach, clients may have trauma in their history, but they come to me with a different intention. My coaching clients often aren’t having debilitating symptoms getting in the way of their everyday life but are ready to fine-tune their life (often making some significant changes!) to step into thriving. The good news is that if you have a history of trauma, it will not scare me as it may scare other coaches. And you may find that our work together resolves any negative way past trauma impacts your current life. If it feels like therapy to work directly with the trauma is indicated, I will recommend you do this work with a licensed therapist alongside our work together.

What can I expect if I become your client?

You can expect me to come to our sessions with the energy of inspiration and possibility. I sincerely trust your body and spirit to lead the way, and I create space to start to listen on a deeper level. And then I am your supportive partner in stepping into the changes your body and spirit are letting you know are called for! This level of coaching takes courage, and I trust that you wouldn’t be signing on to work with me unless a large part of you already feels ready.

What do I need to know to get the most out of working with you?

Come ready to be open, to get inspired, to play. Come prepared to make some changes (maybe significant) in your life if that is what is called for (with my support, of course!). Come ready to orient yourself in a more profound, different way. And maybe most importantly, come prepared to take 100% responsibility for your life so that you can thrive and contribute to a thriving world.

You've mentioned a New Earth a couple of times on your website. What do you mean by this?

My current orientation to the vast things going on in the world is that we are shifting into higher states of consciousness as a species. We are in the process of letting go of or detoxing from old ways of surviving- for example, controlling one another and making decisions from shame, judgment, and fear. Our spirits are asking us to let go of grasping
outside of ourselves to feel safe and ok (whether that be what a particular religion prescribes, or a doctor, or the political party of our choosing). We are being asked instead to find safety, joy, and peace from the inside out. This is an exciting time to be alive, and I am here to show up for it. I believe in a world in which we shift to choosing from love – where we take care of each other regardless of national boundaries, we care for the earth because we understand our health is intimately tied to hers, and we trust our Inner Knowing to guide us. This world is approaching faster than we realize! And it may look a bit hairy at times because the old systems do have to collapse to make space for the new. I am here to work with the bridge builders, the folks building the bridge from the old world to the new earth. If you have a hunch that this is you, it is. I will partner with you to align with this hunch, this inner voice, and live it in the world. Because coming into alignment with our essential nature IS what shifts consciousness.
