Announcement icon Our sessions are outside in the pasture or arena with lots of space and fresh air. The barn doors are kept open if working inside.
Equine Solace is dedicated to support the emotional health and well being of persons dealing with trauma, PTSD, abuse and/or loss. As a retired police officer, I have witnessed the trauma and grief associated with life on the front lines. These experiences led me to seek new and innovative ways to support people dealing with trauma and PTSD. Whether helping survivors of sexual assault on the front lines, or as a registered therapist in private practice with individuals and groups, I also specialize in working with adult female and male survivors of childhood sexual abuse and sexual assault.
My programs are designed to help first responders, survivors of sexual abuse, veterans, at-risk youth and others dealing with trauma, PTSD, abuse and/or loss. Equine guided sessions may include activities such as grooming, simple leading exercises, present moment and body awareness activities. Ground work only. There is no riding.
In 2016, I discovered the healing potential of Equine-Assisted Therapy. I became a certified Mental Health Professional with Professional Equine Facilitated Wellness (PRO-EFW). Through this training, and in partnership with my herd of therapy horses, I have learned to create a safe space for clients to find connection, develop insights and begin to heal.
