”Healing is an art. It takes time, it takes practice. It takes love.” – Pavana Reddy

I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 6 years experience in treating survivors of trauma due to interpersonal violence. I believe in an integrated approach with a focus on the therapeutic relationship that infuses EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and experiential modalities that focus on the mind/body connection.   


This includes Equine Assisted Therapy, where horses act as co-therapists to help individuals better understand themselves and build a sense of internal trust and confidence.


Space is limited for equine assisted work and more traditional office or telehealth based therapy options are also available. However we decide to work together, my hope is to create space for folks to build deeper self-compassion and reintegrate negative experiences and beliefs.

What to Expect:

The decision to begin therapy is a deeply personal one. It can be hopeful and scary. I see therapy as a co-created process set to each individuals pace, needs, and goals. Our time together will start with getting to understand what you want out of therapy, learning some about your history, and planning out how we may accomplish your goals together. 

For folks interested in equine assisted therapy, the equines will be incorporated in various ways at different points during the course or your treatment. All interaction with the equines will be done on the ground, meaning there is no riding involved, and will span from them merely being present with us, to grooming, or leading. My hope for all client's is for their equine partner to become a resource that generates feelings of safety and trust through mutual connection and respect. Equine sessions are hosted at Bent Post Farm in Afton, VA with the assistance of Louise Goodling and her equines.
