Director of Clinical Outreach for Destinations To Recovery. She has had a lifelong passion for psychotherapy and
recovery which manifested in her realization that regardless of age, gender, culture and economic status that the course of every human life is to some degree universally informed with trauma and loss. As a clinician, she saw how our adolescents sometimes struggled to make sense of Twelve Step meetings in their early recovery when she clearly identified a need to create a Twelve-Step based teen-specific equine therapy Program.
