Message from Therapist

“When they saw the star they were overjoyed.”  Mt. 2: 10

My private practice, Come to the Stable, is grounded in the joy of the Nativity; the third joyful mystery in the life of Jesus, and a place of hope.

The setting Is natural, with hoofed animals grazing outside of the office windows. Certain animals can also be welcomed inside the visiting space.

I am specially trained and equipped to bring hope and solid solutions to those who struggle with the burden of life-altering worry, anxiety, and panic.

Let us be “anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present [our] requests to God”. (Phil. 4: 6)

~ Julia

More About Julia Kovac, RN, LPC

After 44 years as a Registered Nurse with board certification in Psychiatry and Mental Health, I am happy to announce the completion of my Nurse Coach credentialing.  I have begun the transition from a primarily Christ-centered counseling practice to one with an emphasis on Christ-centered nurse coaching.  This journey into the art and science of nurse coaching has been unexpectedly wonderous, and I am so excited to be able to share it with you.

I will continue to incorporate the Animal Assisted Therapy with horses [Equine-assisted Therapy] into my practice when requested.  For more information about equine interventions go to the PATH, Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, web site at https://pathintl.org  

God Bless, and Happy Trails.
