1) Tell us a little something about your business…
Equine Facilitated Wellness is a healing modality that I offer in conjunction with my wellness coaching practice for parents of highly sensitive and special needs children. After raising my exceptional son who was diagnosed on the autism spectrum, and knowing how unimaginably complex this diagnosis was for myself and my family, I designed a program that combines my gifts of intuition and connection to horses with my expertise in social work, coaching, energy work and classical yoga. I combine online coaching with in-person equine sessions in the form of a 6-week program customized around each parents’ individual needs and schedules. I offer a safe space to be heard and supported and share simple calming practices and emotional wellness tools in conjunction with experiences with the horses. No riding is involved and all activities are done on the ground at each person’s comfort level.
2) When was your lightbulb moment?
I worked with horses throughout my teen years then was away from them for 20 years. When I reconnected with them for my own self-care after a period of burnout, I was amazed at the similarities they shared with highly sensitive children. Having done many therapies and programs to help my son over the years. I was excited to find that being with the horses provided me with a new way to see him and be with others.
3) Three words of advice…
My passion is helping individuals, especially parents, access their greatness and
cultivate the support they need from within. Helping parents trust themselves and their kids while connecting from the heart. This takes dedicated time, presence, and compassion and can be incredibly comforting and effective when it comes from someone who’s walked a similar path.
