As a behavior specialist and Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) Certified Facilitator, she has combined her passion for horses with her expertise in assisting individuals struggling with personal challenges to create a unique therapeutic experience.
The insights gained through Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) help clients learn effective and positive skills for being successful and overcoming challenges in all areas of their life. It enables participants to access feelings, look at behavioral patterns and develop their introspection to better understand how they feel and act and how they can change. When this occurs within a supportive therapeutic setting, the results are powerful.
