Equine therapy is a treatment modality that can be used for a wide array of client populations and issues in counseling. Equines are horses, and if I didn't do an episode about equines, I wouldn't be able to call myself a true Texan! I am so excited to release this interview because I learned so much about the healing power of horses in counseling/therapy. My guest, Janet Nicholas, gives us details on how to become an equine therapist (not to be confused with hippotherapy) and why horses are so healing in this capacity. I hope you enjoy this content as much as I do!
Must have info about my guest:
Janet Nicholas is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor from South Texas. She has been working in the mental health field for 20 years. Her personal and professional experiences have led her to engage in her current passion of equine therapy. She has her own practice where she sees clients in a traditional office, but also does some of her favorite work out in her "grassy office" with her equine therapy associates (her horses). She went to the University of Houston, St.Edward's University, and then received her Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology from Sam Houston State University.
