My earliest and fondest childhood memories center on my relationship with animals, particularly horses. In 2004, I transitioned from a corporate career into a profession that would enable me to re-connect more closely with these powerfully sentient and wise beings. Establishing Michigan Equine Therapy enabled me to work daily with the animals I love, providing therapeutic massage and energy healing techniques to improve the quality of horses' lives.

Today we are faced with unprecedented disruption in our professional and personal lives. We are watching seismic shifts in our culture and our economy. It is a time of confusion, frustration and fear. The good news is that the human species has endured and survived challenging times like these. The other good news (and bad news) is most of us have not lived through times like these. We have seen the responses ranging from denial and skepticism to panic hoarding of supplies. We can follow the crowd and react to all of the fear, uncertainty, frustration and confusion, or we can step back and evaluate how to respond from a place of compassion and mindful intention. Times like these can bring out the worst in people and they can also bring out the best. I choose the latter. Join me for this discussion on how to use this time to create peace within yourself, enhance your relationships, to use your time effectively to make constructive improvements in your life and the lives of others. We will be covering a wide range of topics over the coming weeks including self care tips, stress reduction strategies, focusing on what matters most, creating the quality relationships we desire, using our time well, goal setting, and much more!
How do you talk to yourself? What does your inner monologue sound like? Would you ever say to another human being what you say to yourself? How would your closest friend react if you spoke to them the way you speak to yourself? In this class you will learn to identify hurtful and negative self talk and how to replace it with positive self leadership. We will explore how creating an inner BFF avatar can enable you to create the loving and compassionate support you need to improve your life and move through it peacefully.
Are you a Type A Personality? Ambitious? Driven? Goal Oriented? Do you set exceptionally high standards for yourself? And do you punish yourself when you do not meet your goals? As a recovering Type A personality who works with many Type A individuals, I have seen and experienced the results of negative self talk. Feelings of unworthiness, failure, disappointment, frustration, low self esteem. In this class we will explore how to get to the root cause of this negative self talk and how to flip the script.
