The mission of Renaissance Equine Gestalt Coaching (REGC) is to support individuals in the discovery of their personal truth; to encourage the development of personal awareness and the strength to find one's voice, while also valuing and appreciating the many parts of self. This new wisdom supports the client to create the positive change and outlook they seek in their life. It is the belief that every individual as a blend of their mind, emotions, body, and soul finds joy, comfort and peace as their most authentic self. The vision of REGC is found in the word renaissance itself: rebirth, resurgence and revitalization.  Private and small group sessions are available by appointment.

A lifelong love and belief in horses and their ability to help humans heal has culminated in a career in equine-assisted services that proudly includes Equine Gestalt Coaching. With an education and employment history in health administration, education and administration, I hold two master's degrees and a doctorate. Over thirty years ago I started out in NYC, riding at Claremont stables and patrolling Central Park with the Park's Department's Mounted Auxiliary. I have three amazing children, two American Quarter Horses and an Australian Shepherd named Violet. I am fortunate to work at a beautiful 26-acre farm with a 200-year-old farmhouse, state of the art equine facility with ten therapy horses in New England's Connecticut.
