Announcement icon Thank you for reaching out. We all need support right now. Please contact me for phone, video, or equine-assisted therapy and consultation.
Do you notice the subtleties in life, feel overwhelmed or anxious often, think deeply about the world, have strong empathy or an active inner life? You might have been born with the trait of high sensitivity. In equine-assisted psychotherapy, self-discovery, communication, and personal authenticity are modeled and taught by the horses. Family issues including parenting, couples, and youth, highly sensitive people (HSPs), and 12 step recovery. Team building and leadership training for groups. HSPs & Horses workshops. Alane Freund has created many programs and workshops for highly sensitive people and their families.
Whether online or in the office or at the barn, I support my clients in telling their story and finding their own solutions. Eagala-model equine work uses a team approach. a licensed therapist and certified equine specialist join 2-4 horses on the treatment team in every session. Experiential and solution-oriented, this is FUN, effective therapy in nature.
As an expert in high sensitivity and anxiety, I will support and teach you how to use your finely tuned nervous system as your superpower instead of letting IT manage YOU. Equine assisted therapy is often a brief therapeutic model. With our herd of highly sensitive rescue horses, clients quickly experience insight and changed behavior. This work is amazing.

Mindfulness, spirituality, expressive arts, writing, group process. Guiding principles: When it's hard, it's hard, & we work hard to move through. Make the right thing easy and the wrong thing difficult. Sensitivity is a superpower--our task: Harness it. Everything is easier with some faith. Nature is home/healing/spirituality. Boundaries are key--with leadership over ourselves we'll find/express them. It's not too late to teach mature women new tricks. Change is always easier with accountability partners.
