For Professionals and Consulting

Trauma-Informed Equine Assisted Consulting

There is a lot of conversation in the equine world about trauma-informed equine assisted programming and how to add this aspect of care to your practice.  As a therapist and an equine specialist who has created and practices a trauma-informed equine assisted practice, I can bring unique perspective to your program.

Call me for a free consult about your goals.

EASTT (Equine Assisted Survivors of Trauma Therapy)

EASTT (Equine Assisted Survivors of Trauma Therapy) is an experiential psycho-educational model for survivors of sexual trauma.

Here is the link to a podcast  with Laura Reagan of Therapy Chat about the power of using equine assisted therapy for sexual trauma.

If you want to know more about the model developed in collaboration with Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center, Central Kentucky Riding for Hope and myself, we will be providing training summer 2017, with more details to follow.  For more information, please contact me.

The EASTT model was  presented at the PATH, Int. Conference in Williamsburg, VA,  November 4, and at the NACSW Conference in Cincinnati, OH., November 19, and is the recipient of the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programming (KASAP) Innovation Program of 2016.


Working with a client who is stuck?  We can work together to bring  your client insight, develop new self-awareness, and expand problem solving skills.  Adding equine assisted psychotherapy in a trauma-informed environment can be resourcing to both you and your client.  The horse creates a safe place to experience emotions that may feel overwhelming in traditional settings.

Equine assisted psychotherapy will challenge your client with new perspective and thinking. I can work with you and your client in the equine environment as your equine specialist.

Contact me for information about how to add this powerful service for your clients.
