Macie is an animal-assisted therapist that seeks to provide a unique therapeutic experience. Macie specializes in working with women struggling with attachment issues, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Macie offers office sessions in Aurora with a therapy dog present or equine-assisted sessions at a ranch in Longmont. No matter the location, Macie incorporates the human-animal bond into every session! Having an animal present is scientifically proven to reduce stress hormones, decrease anxiety, and increase comfort and happy hormones. The animal provides an additional non-judgmental and unbiased party in the therapy space, which can increase comfort and therapeutic benefits.
Macie has an eclectic approach to therapy. With an attachment theory framework to therapy, Macie loves to help young women that are dealing with relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, stress, and self-esteem issues. Macie approaches therapy holistically, with specific training in EMDR to aid in healing the nervous system from trauma. Macie also utilizes ACT approaches to help clients to accept thoughts without judgment. Additionally, mindfulness and somatic therapy interventions are brought into session to help clients connect to their bodily sensations and stay present.
