I’m Vonie, a heart health life coach, writer, longtime fitness professional and horsewomen dedicated to helping women to achieve their best health and well-being.

Healing through horses is not your typical therapy session

Are you…

  • Needing to heal your heart physically and emotionally?
  • Looking for alternative heart therapy?
  • Interested in horse therapy?
  • Ready to make the changes to live your best life?

As a nearby Vancouver life coach, I can help you achieve your greatest health and wellness. It starts with an examination of the heart’s journey – bringing closure to the past and releasing that which holds the heart hostage, healing through forgiveness of self and others, discovering ways to live a better life today, and envisioning brighter tomorrows. Call me today to schedule a FREE 30-minute coaching consultation (360) 904-7867 or email me to get started.

“I call horses ‘divine mirrors’

they reflect back the emotions you put in.

If you put in love and respect and kindness

and curiosity, the horse will return that.”

Allan Hamilton

The Power Of Horse Therapy And Life Coaching

As a Vancouver life coach, my passion for assisting women of all ages in finding healing through Equine Life Coaching led me to the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®, where I gained the knowledge and skills to do just that. I am here to assist you in finding your self-empowerment, to create within you a sense of wholeness by bringing light and laughter to your soul, my knowledge of health and fitness to your body, and creating new beginnings for you even through times of difficulty and emotionally draining life circumstances.

Workshops and Events

Come to an equine assisted coaching workshop or event and learn more about how a life coach and a horse can help you Heal Your Heart & Love Your Life. Some of the topics covered include health & wellness, understanding our values, healing emotions of the heart, and much more.


Learn powerful solutions for effective time management, stress relief, engaging community support and minimizing negative self-talk to help you juggle the many demands of life and business. Connect with fellow business owners in a retreat setting.

Join us for this ongoing Monday evening Meetup from 6:30 to 8:30 pm and discover how a horse and a coach can help you Heal Your Heart and Love Your Life.

Using Gestalt Therapy, NeuroLinguistics Programming, Somatics, and a variety of other coaching tools, we will have many opportunities working towards self-discovery. What brings us joy? Which emotions are driving you? Let a horse and a coach help you figure out the answers to these questions and more.

Live With Purpose, Identify Your Values and Improve Your Life.

In this workshop, you’ll discover your Core Values, Belief Systems, and Temperament.

How do we show up in the world? What drives our decision? What is holding me back? Better yet; get curious and let’s play with some different questions. What do I need to know about this thing that holds us back or stops us from moving forward?
