I’m a native of Asheville, NC. The mountains of this area, some of the oldest in the world, hold me and sustain me. I wouldn’t say I grew up feeling all that connected to Spirit, but I absolutely felt connected to horses and the natural world. I remember having profound moments with trees and water during my college years, and these experiences began to pique my curiosity as to how I fit into this vast universe.

I was called to the Social Work field during my 20’s and 30’s, finding deep meaning in supporting teens and adults work through deep trauma and attachment wounds. My education included a Masters in Social Work, and also a Masters in Applied Healing Arts. This latter program was grounded in Daoism and other Eastern Philosophies, teaching me and engaging me in practices of developing a deep knowing of my Oneness with all that is. My deepening understanding and inner knowing of the Divine within me, held me during my 12 years of practicing psychotherapy. I also steeped myself in somatic training and my own somatic work, learning that being present with the body is not separate from my divine essence, but a way to it.

Then, as always happens when we are on a growth path, I was confronted by my own shadow in a big way. I found myself in a situation where my strategies of being liked by everyone, doing everything “right”, and betraying my own boundaries in the name of “helping others” was actually doing harm. These strategies that had seemed to serve me so well in my life were actually a betrayal of myself. With my connection to Spirit, I slowly worked my way through this process and landed in my sovereignty in a way I didn’t know possible. I will never betray myself again in the way that I did. I now know, deep in my bones, that me showing up authentically and in integrity, no matter how others perceive me, is truly in the highest service to all. This experience catapulted me into high resonance with the spiritual coaching field, which has with it the energy and vibration of liberation and a thriving life. My personal life and work have come into alignment in a way that means I can hold space that’s transformative. I’m humbled and full of gratitude for this.

I am also a partner and mother. Raising a daughter at this time in our history feels like a profound task that I don’t take lightly. I am charged with being a part of creating the world I want my daughter to grow up in- a world of compassion, love, and truth. I am committed to doing this for her and for all I love. This includes you.


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.  I completed Dr. Zach Bush’s Coaches Journey of Intrinsic Health and serve as a contract coach for his Journey of Intrinsic Health Programs.  I am a certified Vital Mind Reset Coach, a comprehensive program that leads to physical and mental wellness and vitality. I also serve as an Authentic Self Coach in the Carolyn Resnick Liberty Method’s Mastermind Program, a groundbreaking horsemanship method that leads you to presence and authentic relationship between your and your horse.
