Equine Gestalt Coaching, in its most basic form, is a way of removing the blocks that stand in the way, and allow for both healing and empowerment through the experience of horses.

  • Horses are amazing animals who live in the present moment and offer unmeasurable emotional benefits to human- kind

Gain More Connection

  • Horses are incredibly intuitive
  • Masters at reading human body language
  • They give us immediate feedback and act as a mirror
  • Offer us honest and non-judgemental feedback

“The first step to getting somewhere is to decide you’re not going to stay where you are.”


  • We all experience “spurs” in our lives. What we choose to do with them or how we react, is the key.

“Life isn’t about finding yourself…life is about creating yourself.”

  George Bernard Shaw

Equine Gestalt Coaching…

  • Allows individuals to deepen self-awareness
  • Find grace, acceptance, and wholeness through the assistance of horses
  • Develop strength and confidence
  • Learn how to step into the person you were meant to become

I have studied intensively for two years under Melisa Pierce, the founder of the EGCM Practitioner Certification Program, in which I learned on two levels:

  •  How to deal with my own “unfinished business”
  •  How to coach others through their life experiences using the amazing principles of Gestalt
  • Horses are amazing animals who live in the present moment. They don’t care what happened yesterday, or what “might” happen tomorrow.  They live in the moment…with no judgement of themselves; pure acceptance.  Allow my horses to show you how you can learn to do the same!

  • Horses offer unmeasurable benefits to the human soul. More Clarity, More Connection, Better Life!

Why Horses …

Horses are incredible beings…

  • They provide immediate and honest feedback and act as a mirror to your soul

  • When you trust the process and open up to them, they will open up to you, softly guiding you to your path

“I am so grateful I sat in the chair to receive your coaching. You provided a very secure, inviting space for me to go to a place inside myself to experience blocks and resistance to the real me emerging. My sense was you had the toughness, but more importantly the ability to meet me where I was. You delivered “heart” and I am most grateful.”

Her coaching has a gentle strength to it – she is open, clear, and masterful at moving clients from deep pain to deeper understanding, clarity, and self- love.”
