Working with a client who may be stuck? Contact me and let’s talk about collaborating with Equine Assisted work. I work with other therapists and their clients, providing you the opportunity to gain insight and help your client develop a deeper sense self-awareness, increase client motivation and attendance; improve interpersonal skills and relationships; developing increased feelings of self-efficacy, empowerment, and resilience; and experiencing physiological benefits through contact with horses that enable clients to be more open and relaxed during treatment in an environment that is nurturing to both you and your client.
If you want to add trauma informed equine programming to your practice but not sure how to get started or need someone to get your program to the next level, let’s talk about how I can work with you to make this a reality. I am a passionate about advocating and supporting to equine practitioners to help promote common professional interests and advance the science and profession of equine assisted therapies.
Our debt of gratitude to the horses we work with and who give so much and so generously to us and to our clients cannot be overestimated or over emphasized. A fundamental aspect of this work is to to address and explore the care and consideration of our horses in our work but also the broader picture in terms of their behavior and their communication. I am committed to the safe, ethical and professional standards in the equine-assisted activities and therapies industry. Creating new programming and adding the benefits of equine work is a passion for me. I’d love to talk to you about the “HOW”…Contact me for a free consult about your goals.
