I have lived in Colorado for over 20 years. I am originally from the Midwest where I grew up in a farm community and to this day enjoy spending time working outside and around animals. I have a wonderful husband, three grown children, and two grandchildren who I love unmeasurably. I enjoy reading, studying, camping, hiking, and hanging out with family and friends.  In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering with horses and donkeys. I have spent much of my adult life as a "Jane of all trades", spending 10 plus years working in the area of law as senior paralegal and department head. I have known  for most of my life that I wanted to transform my life experiences and develop skills to be available to love, support, and encourage those who are enduring feelings of hurt, loss, and brokenness.  Below are my professional credentials for your reading enjoyment and I look forward to meeting you soon.
