Equine Assisted Wellness

Why use horses?

Mental health needs are more important now than ever. Clients need to work through their life struggles without feeling judged or having another person interpret their issues, horses are highly sensitive and the perfect partner to help clients do just that.


End of Life Doula

Even today, death and dying is still considered a taboo topic. We are all on this journey. End of Life deserves dignity. As an End of Life Doula, I will help you and your family have a peaceful end of life experience. 

Advance care planning is difficult to talk about. Let me help as you navigate through these decisions while you create the plan you want.


Equine First Aid

We all need help when an emergency happens. Our horses are no different. They depend on us for food, water and shelter so it is natural for us to become their first responder too.

We offer our equine first aid course to prepare you when your horse needs you in an emergency situation.

My Approach

Your journey is unique to you and so is your mental health. We believe in a holistic approach to our services. Linda incorporates the philosophies and teachings she is learning as she makes her way back to her Indigenous roots. She will meet you where you are in your journey and supports you as you move along on your own terms, at your pace. Her approaches are individually designed for your needs and comfort. Your family and friends will be along with you on this journey. Linda will prepare and support them as they transition into this new chapter of their lives.
