The Healing Combination Of A Life Coach And Horses

In the many years that I was a fitness professional, I found my greatest success when I was helping other women achieve their desired outcomes in their health and overall well-being. Now, as a Certified Equine Gestalt Coach, I partner with horses to help women on a deeper level.

When you combine a life coach with the presence of a horse you’ve got the perfect combination for starting the healing process. Horses have an innate ability to see the truth, to hear our hearts, and bear witness to our souls. By offering so much to us, they can help us start the healing process and restore the fragmented pieces of our lives; restoring our hearts so that we may Love Our Life.

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?
