About

Andrea is an experienced, compassionate and empathetic social worker who is passionate about supporting women, children and adolescents to live their lives in the most fulfilling way possible. At The Horse's Heartbeat, we work with individuals and groups, together with our beautiful horses and ponies. We offer innovative, experiential and relational programs to support clients to become aware, relaxed, and able to step into their best life.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) are types of experiential horse interactions where horses play an active role in the therapeutic and/or learning process. They offer the opportunity for participants to learn about themselves and others through activities with horses.
Andrea is passionate about providing a safe, non-judgmental space. This space helps people to heal and grow through genuine connections and relationship. The horses provide a powerful presence as people explore and heal important elements of their lives. Come and share the experience of spending time with our horses while working on what's important to you.
