"We find our greatest strengths by facing our biggest fears."
- Amanda Graham
When we are confused by all the thoughts spinning in our head, and we've lost confidence in making life-affirming decisions for ourselves, we can lose hope that life can be anything more.
Especially given the way things look
With my authentic style of counseling and psychotherapy that blends traditional talk therapy, my own life wisdom, and my expertise with horses, you have someone who is trustworthy, and you can talk to.
Feel light and be able to breathe again.
Become a better partner, a better parent.
Finally feel heard and understood.
Asking for help is a courageous and vulnerable act, and if you are reading this,
you are considering taking that step.
Maybe you are moving through an unwanted change in your life, or the loss of a relationship.
Perhaps you are experiencing feelings of sadness, grief, or hopelessness because of something extremely painful in your past or your present.
Maybe you are worrying about the future, feeling stuck about what to do next.
All of these situations can be resolved.
I would welcome the opportunity to support you in moving forward toward your goals and the life you desire.

Guiding you through life's obstacles & changes
with grace and integrity.
Is it time to live in alignment with your values, to have purpose and to feel true joy again?
If you are ready and willing to do the work necessary, let's talk about the Eagala Model approach incorporating horses in to psychotherapy and counseling.
I know, we hear it all the time.
"If other therapy hasn't worked, why in the world would horses?"
You will be amazed. Horses can reflect, and respond to, the feeling state we are experiencing.
They provide new, nonverbal information offering you the opportunity to recognize your behaviors, experiences, and feelings in ways that are very different from standard talk therapy.
When we reconnect with nature, we rediscover the essence of who we are. With compassion, we can accept our true nature and begin the journey of building the future we desire.
Through your Unbridled Way Forward team's gentle and compassionate guidance, feel empowered to walk through blocks safely and become stronger than ever. Learn from your wisdom within and engage that wisdom to propel you into the future of your design.
INTELLIGENT PREY ANIMALS
To evade predators, horses have evolved to be extremely sensitive to their environment. They instinctively analyze and react to our body language and other nonverbal cues providing us with valuable feedback and insights for other areas of our lives.
LARGE AND POWERFUL
It's hard to ignore a horse with their size and presence. We can't just control a powerful horse. Approaching horses helps us reflect how we approach our relationships and how we can face other big or overwhelming things in our lives.
HERD ANIMALS WITH DISTINCT PERSONALITIES
Horses are social animals with defined roles within a herd. They have distinct personalities, attitudes, and moods. They could be stubborn or they could be playful. In other words, horses are a lot like us.
The presence of horses in a mental health setting has a positive impact on people’s ability to regain control of their lives.
