One on One Coaching

The Heart of HOPE  is Equine Assisted Coaching. Experience the healing power of horses amid fresh air and the quiet of the country just north of Rochester. In these 90 minute sessions you can explore any area of your life you feel could benefit from some extra guidance. The horses and I hold open, loving, non-judgmental space that allows you to dig deep into your personal truth and authentic vulnerability. Equine Assisted Coaching is a truly transformational process that allows clients the greatest gift we can offer ourselves – the gift of letting go. No horse experience necessary.

Unbridled HOPE EAC

The Unbridled HOPE EAC program fosters hope and healing from stress, trauma and suicide by helping clients gain a deeper understanding of emotions, the impact it has on self-confidence, and how one can improve resilience, health, and well-being through Equine Assisted Coaching sessions. Coaching can free us to move past pain, fear, anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem. We can then discover who we really are, and allow ourselves to move forward in a more positive, healthy direction.
