 Zea is 14 years old and has been with us for the last 10 years. 

She is very kind, practical and gentle.  Her specialty is showing us how much we can accomplish with minimal direction and communication, as we know it.  

The horse/human relationship... an unconventional approach for personal development and growth.

I received my master’s degree in Whole Systems Design from Antioch University Seattle, and my bachelor’s degree in Human Development from The Evergreen State College. I live and work on my horse ranch, Centaur Development Wellness Ranch, in Snohomish Washington. ​

I have two adult sons.  My husband and I enjoy experiencing life together. We particularly love to be outside and go horse camping.  I enjoy my horses, swimming, reading, meditating, yoga, exercising and connecting with family, friends and colleagues.

Horses let us know how we are presenting ourselves in terms of emotions, energy fields and body movements. With horses, you can experience more consciously nonverbal communication. They invite you to clarify your vision and show you how to create results in your life. 

As prey animals they are extremely aware.  They communicate through their senses.  Nature provides them with instincts and senses that are very astute.  This acute sensitivity of the horse acts like a mirror for the humans around them. 

Their communication system is made up almost entirely of a silent language of gestures. Through your interactions, you are able to assess your strengths and weaknesses. How you relate to the horse can act as your guide in growth, learning and self development.

​Horses show us when we are authentically being ourselves. Working with horses enables people to quickly discover insight and take immediate action in creating a desired change. They look for mutual respect and leadership abilities.  

Horses react to what lies in our hearts. They offer us a unique opportunity to see our authentic selves. 

Most of the work we do with our horse partners is done on the ground, not riding. This makes equine assisted coaching accessible to people who have never had any experience with horses. 

Equine Guided Coaching Workshops and Programs have the ability to be a powerful journey of learning and understanding. Our horses are powerful teaching partners. They immediately respond to what the participant is doing. As a coach and facilitator I watch for these teachable movements that the horses identify. 

Why We Work With Horses
Methods of human communication: 55% is body language (i.e., nonverbal) 38% tone of voice and a mere 7% verbal.
Our Equine Coaches
Ella has been with us for 14 years.  She is 16 years old.  She is the "alpha mare" of any group and our super star! 

 Her specialty is healing. She encourages participants to find and honor their true selves.  She has been attuned to level 3 reiki and she uses it well.   
Gee is our new guy.  He seems to be a wise old sage that knows exactly where you are and what you should work on to move forward.  We are honored to have Gee in our heard.
As a life coach for the past 20 years, I have helped individuals explore, develop and materialize their life passion.  

Ten years ago I combined my passion for coaching with my love of horses and designed experiential learning workshops based on the powerful kinesthetic experience of teaming horses with people to identify and focus on behavior patterns that help my clients reach their full potential.  This horse/human relationship in an unconventional approach for personal development and growth. I have offered these Equine Facilitated Learning Programs to a wide range of individuals including consulting companies, spiritual organizations, children and adults.
