Life Navigation Equine Gestalt Coaching
Eyes Are Windows To The Soul. Prepare To See Your Reflection.
Want to better deal with ending cycles passed down from your parents that leave you feeling overwhelmed and at war with yourself?
How good would it feel to be that badass woman your daughter looks up to and live with balance, strength and confidence?
Can you imagine the relief and amazement, when you and your daughters share each other’s heartfelt joys and passion?
The Medicine Horses and I can help you get in touch with parts of you that are out of alignment, so you can feel centered, while navigating life’s transitions and an unsteady, ever-changing schedule.
Together, the horses and I help to create bridges of understanding, so you and your daughter can relish important milestones and feel a deep respect and mentor-based friendship.
Since time began, humanity’s future has been intertwined with horses. Horses have taken us farther and faster than we could ever travel on our own two feet. We’ve built our cities, tilled our lands and fought our wars on their backs.
What have we given horses in return for their faithful service?
Some are granted a pampered life, at least for a time. Many more are abused, neglected, treated as disposable property or simply left to languish alone and forgotten. Horses are intimately acquainted with the pain humans can inflict. That’s why they’re so good at healing wounds, yours and mine, suffered at the hands of humans.
Why would they do this for us?
After centuries of domination, being ripped away from their families and worse, served up as a meal, it might be easy to assume horses have no other choice for survival. But think about it. Can you really get a one ton animal to do anything it doesn’t want to?
The horses I work with are Equine Gestalt Coaches, and choose to be my partners not only in healing the hearts of humans, but also in carrying society toward a more equitable planet. I believe horses have a lot to teach us about owning the energy and intentions we bring to relationships, leadership and our role as stewards on Earth. After centuries being forgotten as the powerful partners in our future that they once were, could it be that now horses are here, waiting to carry us into humanity’s next evolution?
The answer is yes.

What is Gestalt?
Equine Gestalt Coaching Method
For almost three years, I studied, practiced and cleared my own deeply held trauma responses under the apprenticeship of Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989 of the horse-human healing movement, who developed The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method ®. The experiential nature of the method is in alignment with the philosophies I wrote about in my book, PTSD Self Help: Transforming Survival into a Life Worth Living, and involves the horse as an active partner with a coach in a client’s inner exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine’s interaction combined with positive, co-active coaching, somatic awareness, guidance, and Gestalt methodology, assists the client in an examination of their life from the perspective of present moment choices. Through the use of highly effective tools and metaphorical experiences, the human and equine coaches support the client’s search for completion with a focus on designing a positive future free from the limitations of unfinished business that for many, is the basis of trauma.
