Meet Our Team

Dr Traci Moreno, Owner of Free Spirit Coaching- Psychologist (Individual, couples and family therapy) and Empath


My approach to coaching is rather eclectic. Because each client has different needs and goals, my approach must also be different. I believe we all have the power and strength within us

to be successful but we need the guidance, support, and encouragement to make it happen. Therapy needs to be a collaboration between us. We are a team that works together

to uncover the underlying cause of symptoms and maladaptive thoughts and behavior 

and improve Emotional Intelligence (EQ).

Our goal is life long change not just symptom management.  

I use traditional psychotherapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered TherapyMotivational Interviewingalong with more advanced treatment approaches such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Spiritual Psychology. We cannot heal the mind without also healing the body and spirit



I work with teens, adults and LGBTQ. I conduct individual, couples and family therapy. 

I specialize in helping clients through depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma and 

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), divorce, blended families, parenting and stepparenting, marital and family problems, grief (including the death of a pet),

stress, self-esteem and self-love, emotional regulation, boundaries and life transitions. 



I am a Forensic and Clinical Psychologist. However, my own Spiritual Journey led me

to doing clinical work only and opening my private practice in Cave Creek, AZ.

I am a proud stepmom of two sons and a mom of two dogs, one mini donkey and three chickens, which will be here to greet you when you come (the animals not my stepsons). 

I am a writer for Executive Functioning Magazine and

previously wrote for Stepmom Magazine.

I am passionate about creating self-help guided exercises, courses and guided meditations,

which can be found on Free Spirit's YouTube Channel and on

the free mediation app, Insight Timer.

Pasquale and I also co-host a Spiritual Psychology Support Group on YouTube

to help people through their own Spiritual Journey.    

I believe integrity, kindness, and compassion are the keystones of a great life.

I have been blessed with clairvoyance (clear-sight), claircognizance (clear-knowledge), and clairsentience (empathy or clear-feeling) as well as a passion for helping others

rise to meet their most authentic and joyful lives. I am trained in the use of Crystal Reiki Healing and Auric Color Energy and I draw on this knowledge in every session to gently guide you through any challenges. With these gifts, I facilitate a healing space where I tune in to your energy and the guidance from your angels while uncovering messages to aid you in overcoming any blocks you might be experiencing. I use an integrative approach that includes reading your natal chart and using color therapy to help bring balance and solutions into your life. The real power is hidden within you and we will uncover it together!

Finally, we will create an action plan with tangible steps to take to help you

heal, balance, and expand.

During these sessions, you can expect the guidance of angel cards, the soothing energy of honesty and love, and a safe space to heal
and grow. I will teach you how to use meditation, affirmations, and creative visualization to bring both meaning and

success into your life.

What to Expect:
In this session, we will open the space for your soul to reveal and communicate the answers you need for a breakthrough in your life. We will do this by diving deep into the wisdom and guidance of your higher self, your angels, and your natal chart, with a focus on auric colors and energy reading. I will facilitate an invitation to your guides, angels, and any person/s that have crossed over to rely any important messages for your personal and spiritual growth while using color therapy for healing and integration. I work with your unique needs. As an intuitive guide and seer, I am sensitive to all necessary information that comes through for you and excited to help you connect all the pieces. My intention is for you to live a meaningful, passionate life. I use an integrative approach to help you zoom out so you can see the whole path towards the direction your heart wants to go in. Additionally, we’ll focus in on the blocks that keep you limited and small. By seeing and acknowledging these blocks, you can shine a light on your life and dismantle what no longer serves your highest purpose. You will walk away from this session with your birth chart and what I call a “prescription” — a tangible action or actions you can take to elevate your life to the next level.

You are worth your next transformation.

You deserve the most passionate, abundant, and blissful life Earth has to offer!

Kirra Denten, LAC

Licensed Associate Counselor

Kirra Denten with Free Spirit Coaching- Licensed Associate Counselor (Individual, couples and family therapy)

I graduated from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology with a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology in 2000. I am kind, caring and supportive by nature but I am also straightforward, honest and will challenge you to make changes and reach your goals.

I work with teens, adults, couples and families.

I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD,

grief and loss, stress management, life transitions,

marital and family problems, self-esteem and confidence and spiritual counseling.

I use Positive and Stregth-Based PsychologyCognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)Mindfulness, Family and Marital Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), 

I'm a Cave Creek resident and a mom of three. I'm an animal lover. 

I'm spiritually grounded and love walking with clients on their journey.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from University of Southern California (USC).

I'm a certified equine facilitated coach, certified equine specialist in mental health

and learning and a certified professional life coach. 

Horses are very responsive animals with awareness and sensitivity to their surroundings and people. They bring their own personality into a relationship, along with their own limitations and abilities. A person is accepted on that person's level of trust, confidence, awareness, and interpersonal skills. Horses can build a person's self-confidence and self-esteem as the relationship between horse and human deepens.

Horses give us immediate and honest feedback about ourselves by reading our

verbal and non-verbal communication. They reflect back to us our feelings of

anxiety, sadness, happiness, trust and a variety of other feelings.

Whether on horseback or working on the ground with a horse,

the horse is constantly reading our emotions.

The way you talk to a horse can reveal how you relate to people verbally.

Leading the horse can reveal your sense of power or helplessness you feel in your world. Additional activities, customized for each session,

are created to help participants reach goals and develop personal growth and learning.

Horses can be a valuable partner in emotional healing.

They offer encouragement, hope, and unconditional love.

They can have profound effects on helping people recovering from trauma such as: 

domestic violence, child abuse, grief and loss, sexual abuse, and divorce.

Equines can help victims of abuse and trauma work through feelings of

fear, anxiety, depression, and low self worth. Troubled teens with

ADHD and/or behavior issues can benefit tremendously from working with them.

The process of caring for a horse, learning horsemanship and riding skills

can help kids and teens develop respect and patience, social skills, and

overall self confidence. Whether a person is having trouble with

relationships, school, or life in general, all ages of clients often feel something

with horses that they have never experienced before - love and acceptance.

Most people learn lessons in respect, trust and hope that can be applied to

everyday life and relationships. Horses create an environment for a person to

overcome fear and develop confidence. Accomplishing a task involving a horse

provides a person with tools that he or she can take into the

"real world" when challenged with other difficult situations in life.

marital, family, siblings, parenting and relationships; social, emotional, behavioral, intellectual and academic issues; self-esteem and confidence; life transitions,

Before pursuing a license in Clinical Psychology, I spent 25 years as a

School Psychologist working at various school districts through California

where I counseled students and their families. I’m passionate about

helping children and their parents work together as a family, as a team.

A team approach is the most effective approach with families, which is why

I also collaborate with your child’s teachers and other providers as needed.

I can help you advocate for your child if a 504 Plan or an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is needed, as I conducted evaluations to assess

ADHD, Spectrum Disorders (Autism), learning disorders, intellectual disorders and behavioral and emotional disturbances.

I have been providing telehealth services for many years and find it to be

highly effective and convenient. There is nothing we can’t do via telehealth.

If you’re hesitant about telehealth services, there’s only one way to find out… Try it!

Julie Lemerond
Sound Healer & Registered Yoga Teacher

Since 2010 I've been a yoga and meditation teacher.

I consider it a sacred honor to share these healing modalities with others

as we all walk on this path through life together. I have an advanced certification

in Yoga Nidra, which is a sleep-based meditation designed to use the biological process of sleep as a vehicle to enter into deeply subtle and profoundly healing states of being.

All you have to do is lie down, get comfortable, and be led through a series of breath and body awareness techniques - it's an effortless and elegant meditation practice

In addition to teaching Yoga Nidra, I also use gentle yoga as well as sound healing in the form of crystal bowls, a gong, koshi bells and an ocean drum to enhance your experience. There is nothing more powerful than tuning into the wisdom of the body

to heal the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual scars that we gain as we move through life. I'm deeply honored and consider it a gift to share

these practices with others, as they have led me towards so much liberation

and I wish that for you as well!
