Equus Coaching is an experiential process of self-discovery through partnering with a horse and an Equus Coach.  The process is achieved through hands on interactions and exercises in a round pen.  The horse reflects your way of showing up in the moment. 

The Equus Coach translates the non-verbal language of the horse through inquiries which will assist the client in connecting to their own deeper awareness.


Horses physiologically calm our nervous systems.  The horse speaks to the body while the Coach speaks to the mind.  This creates a balanced alignment between our mind-body connection. 

Many benefits include a sense of calm, clarity, trust, boundary setting, leadership, connection (to self and others), patterns, as well as how present we are in each moment. 

*There is no riding and no previous horse experience is necessary.

Walk N Talk 2.jpg

Imagine getting away from the busyness of home, work, school, or the sterile environment of an office and out into nature where you’ll feel the expansion of the trees, plants, animals, and fresh air.  We’ll walk beside one another as we talk with the ease of two friends chatting about whatever is happening in your life. This is YOUR time to get confidential support in a safe, comfortable, and relaxing environment.


Nature itself offers an abundance of healing energy. Studies show that spending time in nature is linked to cognitive and physiological benefits, such as improvements in mood, mental health, and emotional well-being.  When our nervous system can relax, we can feel comfortable enough to talk about the difficulties we’ve been holding and carrying with us.

Life Coaching assists people with "Life" circumstances.  Sometimes we find ourselves with issues that may not require a therapist, and our friends or family can't quite help us.  A Life Coach has the training that fits between therapy and friends.

We will chat about your specific life topics that you would like assistance with and create solutions that feel realistic and doable for you. 

I want to help you walk into greater self-awareness, transformation, and healing. Walking in nature is one of the best tools to get started.  So, grab your walking shoes and let’s go.


The hardest part is taking the first step……are you ready to go for a walk?

Experiencing loss is the hardest time in our lives.  When we are in it, we don't always know what we need.  Being able to express what we are experiencing is necessary, yet it must feel safe and supported.

Grief support provides the safe space to share with someone who can empathize and listen to what you are experiencing.  We just need to acknowledge the loss and express our feelings, so we can then take tiny action steps to finding a new way back to ourselves.

I have personally experienced many deep losses which led me to volunteer training through the Centre for Living With Dying, a program of the Bill Wilson Center.  I then completed their certification process and Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) training through West Valley College and have been supporting people in grief since 2009.

Intuitive and Spiritual Mentoring offers guidance to better understand one's own instincts and sensory abilities.  We all have senses, some are stronger than others, and we typically use those most often.
