A Holistic Approach To Wellness
We have enjoyed a successful collaboration with Excelsior since 2021. In the midst of a pandemic, Excelsior took extraordinary measures to provide their youth with healing and therapeutic options.
I highly recommend their diverse programs for local youth. Call today to discuss enrollment options.
Hear what Excelsior has to say;
“At Excelsior Wellness, we are immensely proud of our transformative partnership with Second Chance Ranch within our MOVE Well program. This collaboration has brought hope, healing, and stability to the lives of the youth we serve. Second Chance Ranch plays a pivotal role as the sanctuary where our youth find an instant sense of peace amidst their tumultuous journeys.
Through Equine Therapy at the Ranch, our evidence-based practices have allowed these youth to embark on a path towards emotional and mental stability. Moreover, they acquire invaluable coping skills, customized to their unique needs. Second Chance Ranch stands as a beacon of support, offering a safe space where our youth connect with the horses, fostering a remarkable sense of calm and resilience.
We owe much of our success to this extraordinary partnership, and the Second Chance Ranch team's dedication to creating a haven for these youth. Together, we are providing a lifeline of stability and healing, offering a brighter future to those who need it most. This collaboration is a testament to the power of collective efforts in making a difference in young lives.”

Equine Gestalt Coaching & Reiki
I have been trained in the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®. This therapeutic modality utilizes somatic experiences to assist the client in releasing trauma from the body, and the horse coach assists in processing the experience. The two-year program includes trauma-informed training and I approach the work with an emphasis on the client’s strengths and abilities, rather than a deficit-based approach. I am partnering with the Second Chance Ranch sanctuary for retired sport horses to offer this unique form of therapy.
My training also includes healing energy work as a Certified Karuna Reiki Master®. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) harnesses the unseen energy that flows through all living things and directly affects a person’s well-being. When your energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress. Reiki promotes stress-reduction, relaxation, and healing.
To provide healing from trauma and foster feelings of significance and peace for First Responders and their families by intimately connecting with them through Coaching and Reiki.
