Animal Assisted Interventions
"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better - Albert Einstein
Growing up in rural North Dakota, I developed a passion for nature and its animals. I have been partnering with both dogs and horses to incorporate them in my clinical practice for over 10 years. Partnering with animals in clinical practice can provide additional comfort and emotional safety, provide opportunities for great insight, and allow for a little bit of nature in our work.
I have volunteered for Pet Partners as both a volunteer therapy team and therapy team evaluator as well as am an EAGALA certified mental health clinician. For more information about how animals may be incorporated into your clinical work, contact me.
