Equestrian Focused Therapy
Equestrian focused therapy is geared toward those who have horses as an influential part of their life and would like to incorporate their horse into their therapy work, or do therapeutic work around the relationship they have with their horse.
This speciality offered therapy is a combination of sports performance work and equine psychotherapy and aims at providing a unique type of healing and support for those in the equestrian space. As an equestrian myself, I find a special joy in working with horses and their people.
I am trained in and practice Embodied Equine Psychotherapy™, which is an experiential, somatic and relational approach to working with clients and horses. Equine therapy often allows for a deeper experiencing of emotion and can help inform and guide healing for a variety of concerns including anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and depression. I offer equine therapy for those clients who have their own horse and would like to include their horse in their healing work. I am also a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner and often use brainspotting therapy to process and release trauma, stress and other subconscious experiences that may hinder your performance or connection to your horse.
Typically I schedule 90 minute sessions for my equine or sports performance work if I am coming onsite to work with you and your horse for therapy. Brainspotting or talk therapy sessions can be done at your home with horse present, in office or via telehealth.
A life with horses is a complicated, challenging and beautiful experience. These animals are intuitive, beautiful and frustrating at times. Horses teach us much about ourselves often without meaning to; when we are ready to listen is when we begin to grow.
