Do horses talk?
Well, not like the famous Mr. Ed, of course.
But they do speak through body language and their breath.
Horses are adept at picking up on subtle energies and responding to incongruencies, which makes them masters at uncovering truth.
What if I am afraid of horses, do I have to work with them?
Absolutely not! Therapy with Heart’s Desire uses a multi-faceted approach, which includes Somatic Experiencing® a gentle approach to trauma resolution, and Reiki, energy work that can restore physical and emotional well-being. In addition, I am experienced and have trained in DBT, CBT, and psychodrama.
What is Somatic Experiencing®?
Somatic Experiencing® was discovered by Peter Levine after his studies of animals in the wild. It is a gentle approach to the renegotiation of trauma without re-living the trauma. You can read more about this technique under Specialties.
What is Reiki?
Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level. You can read more about this technique under Specialties.
