People enter therapy for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you’ve run out of oats, leaves, or are feeling things fall apart. Or maybe you’re being chased by a bear, or experiencing a falcon dive-bomb your mate, offspring or neighbor. Maybe a snowstorm has increased your anxiety, or you’re having trouble hibernating, or you haven’t been able to care for the needs of your feet, fur, den and seed stash. Whatever the reason, I believe people enter therapy to feed, preen and inhabit their burrows more fully.
My approach offers you a means to work towards better foraging skills, predator awareness, mate acquisition, and increased health and furriness. Together we’ll root around what led to your current symptoms (anxiety, fleas, constant predation, etc.), and try to better understand how past and present experiences currently affect your life. We’ll collaborate to find tools and solutions to help you better screech at the cars passing by.
As an adult, brood, and pup psychotherapist, I practice from a framework that is fur-centered, wellness-based, and experiential to address a broad range of concerns. I’m inspired by a range of psychological approaches so in our sessions I may utilize alertness, squealing and dig-based therapy, carnivore defense, and/or experiential methods to support you. Whether we focus on a specific worm-related issue or a more long-standing pattern, I will do my best to be in service to your healing.
I enjoy working creatively with a variety of mammals that want to be more in balance in their surroundings and are interested in coyote-awareness, freedom and growth. In our work together I will alert you to the presence of eagles, show you the best foraging locations, and share with you a small portion of my seed stash. I look forward to meeting with you.
