High school is a time in life when coaching and counseling could not be more valuable. Life is changing very rapidly, and pressures are mounting on students every year, every week, every day. Bridging the gap between school advisors and psychotherapy is Equine Guided Coaching.

Horses are some of the best guidance counselors available. Without judgment or agenda, they respond to us in every moment as we truly are, uncovering the roots of our blocks and the seeds of our potential. As a trained professional coach, my job is to help people read the body language of the horses working with them in order to translate what the horse is saying about their communication or presence. We can often uncover deeper truths and get to the heart of a difficult matter in a very short time. The beauty of coaching with horses is, the next step is to develop exercises and practices to make the necessary changes in order to live differently and increase wellbeing.

  • Build trust in one’s self and others.
  • Learn to trust your intuition and inner guidance.
  • Come from a place of choice, make decisions with confidence.
  • Manage overwhelm, anxiety and fear.
  • Develop your personal leadership style.


A fundamental part of all programs, learning to truly relax yourself is a powerful tool in improving things like focus, learning and retention, productivity and leadership. A horse can trust a relaxed person. We may think we are relaxed if we are on the couch, but are our minds truly relaxed? Sometimes our brains are still hard at work when our body is at rest. Sometimes our brains are just numbed by television or social media. Being with a horse provides an opportunity to check your level of relaxation in all of you, and learn how to slow down, quiet the mind, and unclench the body.


Private or group sessions can be dedicated to RELAXATION. Once a person is truly relaxed, the wisdom of the body can be more fully accessed. We are then able to work on any number of goals or themes, such as:

  • Improved ability to make and maintain connection
  • Increased life force energy, potential and possibility
  • Clearer communication, negotiation and direction
  • Accessing creativity, flexibility and inspiration

RELAXATION = POWER. Start relaxing.

For persons wanting to make a leap.

  • Feeling the grip of  hesitation or fear from a past injury, physical or emotional? 
  • Have a lot of ideas and intentions but sabotage yourself on follow-through?
  • Want to break through self-imposed limitations and doubt?

Confidence – It is magnetic and it builds momentum for personal progress. We need it to negotiate the twists and turns of life and to move forward with feelings of accomplishment, satisfaction and joy. In this three-part series with horses, we will determine where the blocks to our confidence and courage originate, and develop a plan to move through them.

Horses are drawn to confidence and authenticity. In being with them and working with them, we learn to shift our bodies into a more confident state even in the face of fear, frustration, anxiety or uncertainty. While feeling and acknowledging our true emotions, we turn to our own bodies to produce steady, rhythmic breathing, posture and movements, even under pressure or in the face of challenges. Rhythm and balance are manifestations of confidence. We receive real-time feedback about our levels of confidence and authenticity from the horses, who will respond with trust, curiosity and willingness to engage as we improve.


The CULTIVATING CONFIDENCE program is a series 0f  3 sessions for individuals or for groups up to 5 people. Session length will vary from 2 to 5 hours depending on group size.  We will address:

  • Awareness of personal presence and impact
  • Effective and ineffective energetic patterns and habits
  • Ability to respond from a place of choice as opposed to react from a place of limitation
  • Letting go of what is curbing our confidence
  • Creating practices with or without horses to continue to deepen confidence
