See yourself move from surviving to thriving

Untether your barbed wire bound heart from the expectations placed on you by others and yourself, moving you off the path of merely surviving day to day onto the path of thriving.

My Mission

In the midst of life’s storms we forget how to dance in the rain.  Untethered Hearts™ is a sacred, safe, confidential place enveloped in compassion where individuals learn to weather life’s storms with grit seasoned by grace, healing past hurts and trauma, move out of the darkness of chaos, conflict and hopelessness from the past into the light of healing, joy, peace and whole-heart-ness.

Trauma changes you from the inside out

Find your power over trauma

Have you ever felt helpless or even hopeless? Have you ever experienced a diminished sense of self? Have you ever felt a reduced capacity to experience the full range of emotion and experiences that make us human? Maybe you have felt disempowered and silenced or lost without direction.

Find True Healing

Untether your heart from all that binds it

Clear the Debris

Trauma can have a resounding impact that ripples through our lives like shockwaves. It’s in these living, breathing, life moments that I have been trained to help you.


Re-Envision Yourself

Horses don’t look at you and see your past, or know your future. They only know your now. Horses offer you the gift of moving into the present moment step-by-step and then walk alongside you as you find your footing on the path to healing.


Rebuild a better You

Heal your past and begin making choices that positively shift the trajectory of your path, mindfully designing a positive future as you untether your heart. You CAN live mindfully, purposefully and empowered!

Hearts Held Hostage

“If your butterflies had a voice, what would they say?”  I asked her.  She looked at me long and hard.  After what felt like an hour, she said, “I don’t know…”, her voice trailing off.  “Okay, love.  Can you breathe into the...

Taking a Deep Seat

The only words of instruction that he offered were, “A lot of people fall off that one.  Most people.  Actually, I’m not sure anyone that’s sat on him can say they haven’t come off of him.”  I laughed out loud thinking to myself, “Great … just...

Equine Assisted Coaching

Through experiential learning, co-facilitated by the horses, you are able to gain greater awareness around who you were, who you are and who you, now, choose to be.

What Our Clients are Saying

Jessica coaches with a strong, quiet grace. She connects with her client deeply and creates a safe space in which they explore and build awareness together.

Jess, you were fully present with me and showed me great compassion. Talking with you is like sharing your story with a wise and trusted friend who brings to light the best in you!

L.K. | Albequerque, NM

Jessica’s own courage and anger on behalf of others who have survived personal violence is a huge asset in your coaching. Recognizing and boldly facing her own stuff inspires many to do the same. Her combination of strength and compassion and her expressive voice of both inspires so many to find a way to express their own strength and compassion.

H.K. | Springfield, VA

“What a difference an hour with Jess makes” - Bless you for being so trustworthy! And for being willing to just “go there” - I am experiencing the truth that when the heart is untethered it can lift and expand and be free!!! - And the level of care and compassion you immediately embodied is as healing as your words.
