I have been in the Property Management industry for almost 25 years. Managing and marketing communities has provided me a keen eye for detail, business and insight into people. A few years ago, I was feeling lost in my career. The market turned extremely rough and I was facing what I believed to be failure. It took a toll on my health and relationships. All my life, I handled my life's challenges on my own.
I attended an Open House for the Madison Mounted Patrol and I heard a message from Dr. Stacey Bean from Indigo Trails. She explained her coaching and healing work with horses. Her message and background immediately spoke to my heart. For the first time, I sought out a professional to assist me with my life.
The work we did together sparked joy and gratitude back into everything I did. The downward spiral became a climb up a glorious ladder. I was so inspired, I decided to enroll in the Touched by a Horse two year program to become an Equine Gestalt Coach myself. I wanted to share how to be truly present while becoming the best me I knew how to be. This journey has been life changing.
I love horses and have seen personally as client and coach how they can help someone find strength, peace, perspective and compassion.
I take riding lessons every week, and I have become a better partner with the horses I am working with.
I grew up not enjoying most holidays. It was a time of conflict and it didn't really matter what time of year it was. Halloween was very special because it was the one day that we all came together and had true family fun. My father was a pumpkin artist and my mother had a zeal for costumes. Anytime I could share excitement with my little sister was a blessing to me. I believe that is why I love Halloween so much. We even had a Halloween themed wedding. When I went away to college, I started to explore ways to celebrate with joy.
I specialize in Holiday Coaching. If you are wanting to overcome anger, resentment, stress, heartbreak, or perfectionism as it relates to any holiday occasion, I will be there to coach you. Finding gratitude around a day that you dread right now, will liberate you.
My husband and I own Breezeway Bubbles Scuba dive shop. We love sharing our passion of diving and travel with all that will let us. As we pursue our business aspirations, we have witnessed how diving and travel changes and inspires those that we work with. There are many examples of how Equine Gestalt Coaching practices can help an individual overcome fear, anxiety, self doubt, and sadness while finding the tools inside you to reach your full potential. I truly wish I had learned this when I was going through classes 20+ years ago!
I was blessed to have teamed up with my friend and coaching inspiration, Nelle Rogers from Seahorse Healing. We organized the Healing Ohana group. We conducted the groups at both Horse First Farm and Imagine Farms, so each of our horse partners could participate with the group members. Magic, Nelle's horse is full of Magic! Jasper is a natural with knowing how to stand with someone in time of need. He is full of compassion and love. Our healing Ohana Group has explored so many healing needs, and it has been true gift to be a part of it.
Another passion of mine is music. It is a part of my day each and every day. Music has got me through the hardest of times...and the best of times. I am not a musician, but the intensity of love I have for it has allowed me to understand the artist's life. We all want to be the Rock Star of our own life. Sometimes, we have a block, fear, addiction, etc. that is holding us back. Or sometimes, life changes...we get older and the path of being a rock star on stage changes; your identity as a retired musician can be confusing. Jasper and I would love to help guide you through these things.
Gestalt (and especially with an equine partner) is magical! The experiential approach helps you see what's in your heart. You will find the answers you are seeking if you take the time to invest into your self. I may specialize in the above, but Jasper and I have helped many people through many situations of life. From putting together a plan to clean up a room to dealing with loss to family dynamics to career development to feeling completely lost in this world of life.
I will be honored to share your journey with you! We can find Gratitude again!
