My lifelong love for horses and experiences of their healing ability, paired with a lifetime of witnessing friends and family members battle addiction has inspired me to help others. After witnessing the detriment of addiction on both the addict and their loved ones, I decided there had to be another way.
Through The Addiction Academy I've gained comprehensive knowledge about Addiction and Family Recovery. Often, the family is left out of the treatment loop and the addict returns from Rehab and falls into the same dynamics that fueled the addiction and the same patterns are repeated. Through equine coaching, paired with other diverse coaching methods, personal growth and healing for the loved ones affected by this trauma is possible.
Certifications in Recovery, Family Recovery, Relapse Prevention and NeuroHealth Coaching, along with my journey with horses and nature have provided me with much healing and I am privileged to share this with others.

Equines, prey animals, have survived for thousands of years through recognition of non-verbal signals and highly adapted self-preservation skills. Equines have an abundance of mirror neurons which allow them to read and react to your internal reactions. In other words, they can see right through you. This makes them excellent partners in coaching.
Our 50 acre setting in Hesperus Colorado, with a secluded meadow and stream make the perfect setting for reflection, growth and healing.

Family Recovery Coaching
Addiction impacts family and friends as they struggle to help their loved one with the addiction. The addict can become the center of attention, consuming the physical, emotional, mental, time and fiscal resources of the family. A rash of emotions including embarrassment, shame, frustration, anger, guilt, sadness compile and considerable stress can result. The families ability to fully function is affected. The same issues that led the addict to his drug of choice, are often underlying issues for all family members.
Treatment focuses on the addict/alcoholic which is critical. But when family members issues go unaddressed the addict/alcoholic returns to the same family dynamic and underlying issues are still present. This can contribute to relapse. Family Recovery supports the family members in identifying and healing their wounds so that they can gain a sense of hope and purpose. The family dynamic shifts and a healthier unit can better support the addict/alcoholic.
