About Me

Welcome! I am a certified EMDR therapist that works with driven adults who have been held back by their past and want to make a change. My experience with healing from my own past led me to my dream in helping others; providing the opportunity for healing in alternative ways to just the standard office setting. I wanted to incorporate our farm and the healing connections of our animals. The first step was returning to college to earn my Bachelor’s Degree from Capella University and then my Master of Arts Degree from Hazelden Betty Ford. I began working as a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor at a local co-occurring treatment center on my way to becoming a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. After becoming licensed, it was time to make my dream a reality. With the help of my supportive family, we founded Manes For Change. Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive path for people to make a change. We have helped many people like you mend relationships and heal from past traumas while regaining happiness, hope, meaning, inner strength, self-compassion, self-validation, and self-love. I’m excited to work with you on your path to change! Learn to treat yourself with the compassion and love you deserve! We will work together to establish the path right for you. Online, in the office, or the pasture, we will use any combination of EMDR therapy, somatic work, mindfulness techniques, and equine-assisted psychotherapy to help you reshape your sense of self, reprocess past traumas, and find healing.
