To our wonderful clients and their families,
We want to take a moment to address the current COVID-19 situation and the actions Horses For Healing is taking to protect the health and safety of our clients and staff.
We have put into place best practice guidelines set forth by the CDC for preventing the spread of the virus. In addition to our regular cleaning regimen, we will be increasing the frequency of these cleanings to happen multiple times a day and will be paying special attention to high contact surfaces. Staff with flu-like symptoms will be staying home and if you feel ill, please cancel your session.
With that being said, we want to offer an alternative to in-person sessions for those who would like an alternative. Your therapist is happy to offer you sessions through the HIPAA compliant Zoom. Zoom is free and available to download on your computer. In addition, if you would like to Skype or FaceTime, please let your therapist know. We will continue to offer in-person sessions as we do not work in large groups and have the capacity to keep an appropriate social distance.
As we all know, this situation is ever-changing and, we are constantly monitoring best practices for your safety and ours. We will post any changes to the above information as it becomes available.
We appreciate each and every one of you and see this as a team effort to stay healthy and still meet your clinical needs.
Let us know how we can help you feel comfortable and heard.
- Claire, Caitlin, Bethany, Ryan, Brian and Calle, and of course, the horses.

"I am very grateful for Claire and the space she has created. I immediately felt comfortable right away and that was the biggest thing I needed last summer. She is a very empathetic and very patient. I find myself smiling on the way to each appointment and glad that I was connected to her programs."
