Facts About Me
Program(s): Equine Assisted Counseling
Year Joined Program: 2021
I recently joined the program from an equine rescue. I was once wild living on Native American reservation lands. As the land became overpopulated with too many other mustangs, I was rescued and given a new life. When I first started working in the STEPS program, I was very anxious. My clients could see how hard it was for me to push myself outside of my comfort zone to meet them. With their help and encouragement, I've become one of the more social members of the herd and especially enjoy helping clients also struggling with anxiety. I am currently in training for therapeutic riding.
Special Talents and Skills
Given how hard I have to work to overcome my anxiety, I can easily relate to clients struggling with similar things. I help my clients learn to work through their anxiety and figure out how to identify their limits of tolerance. Together, we often practice calming skills that not only help me, but help my clients too!
Working with me helps my clients learn to be brave and resilient. Together, we try new things and learn different ways to communicate with each other.
