Heather has always had a love affair with horses and has been involved with them in one aspect or another since she was a small child. It wasn’t until she had worked as a teacher, youth worker, and counselor that she began to understand the power and magic of the horse-human relationship. With over 20 years experience working with high risk youth and their families, she wanted to unite these two passions. She now considers herself a bridge-builder, bringing people and horses together in healing relationships.

Heather was fortunate to find Healing Hooves and Sue McIntosh. She completed Sue’s Advanced Workshop in the Equine Assisted Counseling model in 2006. Since that time, Heather has been strongly influenced by the work of Linda Kohanov, Leif Hallberg, Arianna Strozzi and Linda-Ann Bowling.

The programs Heather has offered have usually focused on at-risk youth and adults in recovery from addiction. While doing her own personal work with the horses, she had the revelation that we all need a “herd” and this brought about the creation of the program designed specifically for women.
