Plenty and Grace is more than a place, it is an concept.
Tracey grew up on the plains of South Dakota and was always around horses. After moving to the East Coast she lost this connection. While feeling homesick for the plains, Jim was inspired to gift Tracey with a rescue horse. While they didn’t know it at the time, this was the beginning of Plenty and Grace. When Jim was first deployed to Iraq two other horses entered the family, one horse’s registered name is Plentyofit and the other is Amazing Grace, hence Plenty and Grace. Some time later Tracey was gifted with a small plaque with the inscribed words, “Plenty and Grace be to this place.” It turns out this phrase is an old Celtic blessing. It suits the ethos of our vision and our dedication to aiding individuals and families in their quest of wholeness, health, and happiness regardless of spirituality or religious affiliation. Plenty and Grace is open to everyone.
May plenty of grace be with you.
Plenty and Grace was created from the hearts of James Rose (Jim) and Tracey Frink; licensed marriage and family therapists. Their complementary styles of therapy and education provide a safe haven for couples, families, and individuals seeking to develop skills for self-healing. “People experience themselves differently. We open our hearts and spaces for those who feel lost or like they don’t belong”, Tracey says. The diversity of people served at Plenty and Grace, include military personnel and their families, minority and underserved groups such as LGBTQIA and Spanish-speaking individuals, and those suffering from childhood and adult abuse.
Jim and Tracey both have experience treating the symptoms and stressors that survivors of trauma experience such as anxiety, depression, anger, withdrawal and intimacy challenges. Often times, soldiers and their families also experience these symptoms after deployment and redeployment whether there is a formal diagnosis or not. Multiple tools for treating these stressors include a combination of individual, couple, and family therapy utilizing the tools of Emotionally Focused Therapy, Equine Assisted Mental Health (EAMH), Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness techniques, and other evidence-based modalities.
