My Story…

Second Wind is a fabulous organization and I've worked with them for 13 years in various capacities. I am currently a licensed therapist contracted with them to provide services to suicidal teens whose families cannot afford therapy. I own Steady Strides Equine Assisted Therapy, so I use horses in all my therapy sessions. Your donation will go directly to fund therapy sessions for a suicidal teen in need. It will make a difference by helping to save a life! Thank you for your donation to Second Wind.

This photo is of one of my therapy horses. A client painted this sun on the horse during her last session to represent the hope and healing she found through therapy.


Help me raise funds for Second Wind Fund! Suicide is currently the leading cause of death for youth  in Colorado. The Second Wind Fund aims to decrease the incidence of suicide in children and youth by removing the financial and social barriers to treatment. SWF’s program is delivered in 30 counties across Colorado, including: Denver, Jefferson, Mesa, Arapahoe and Douglas. To date, their program has served over 5,600 youth since 2002. Your support will help save young lives from suicide! 

Second Wind Fund has a simple formula for levels of financial support. They are capable of saving a young life for every $1,000 received: 

12 therapy sessions x $70 a session = $840 

3 Suicide Ideation Questionnaires = $30

Therapist Travel Reimbursement = $120 

Minimal Administrative Costs = $10

Total = $1,000

Thank you so much for supporting me and Second Wind Fund! No donation is too small. If you need any additional information on Second Wind Fund, please visit their website:
