What Clients Are Saying

Attractive Young Woman

Julie

Christina and Tim are awesome.  The work we do with the horses helps me to identify my unwanted patterns and connect therapy to real life situations. With equine therapy, I have been able to decrease my anxiety and gain valuable personal insight, all while working with these beautiful creatures. I am forever grateful.
