"One never knows what they don't know until they need to know.


With many failed attempts at counseling, I found myself broken and susceptible that anything could help.  My initial visits started with Calle and Ashva yoga.  Calle opened my senses and mind up to breathing, calming, mindfulness, and adapting my inner focus to the "moment".  Her structured/guided, "check your face" one-on-one program gave me the privacy and confidence I needed to be open and receptive to therapy.  I also participated in joint therapy with Celina and Harley (and Watson, Oreo, the minis and Rolex).  Overtime, this combined approach has given me immeasurable tools, confidence and helped me reach the decision to not only live but to thrive out of trauma.  I can't express how much this program has helped me in gaining my identity, confidence, and joy.  Words cannot express how humbled I am to have received therapy with this professional "outside the box" group of individuals.  Claire has put together a dynamic program serving our community, youth and military members.  Thank you to the entire staff at Horses for Healing!!"
