One-on-One Sessions are available with Melisa and her equine partner. With her background in Gestalt psychotherapy and lifelong experience with her horses, Melisa is able to work with clients in a variety of modalities that enhance the learning experience. Using the energy sensitivity of the horse, clients work through limiting beliefs that interfere with coping mechanisms, and how they interact with their world.
These sessions are usually 2 hours in length. These sessions are kept in complete confidence. Melisa and her healing equine partners are experienced in working with the deepest of emotional challenges to exploring every-day limiting beliefs. These sessions can be held with individuals, couples or families. If you are doing an ongoing work with a local therapist, the therapist is invited to observe the session.
Utilizing her unique method called Equine Gestalt Coaching(TM), Melisa works keenly with people’s emotions and energies in their body. Coupled with her love and deep understanding of horses, she often works in tandem, partnering with a horse to help her awaken the person’s awareness of their behavior and energy. Issues surface as a person interacts with their equine partner. Melisa’s insightful ability to debrief the experience often yields unexpected results and permanent growth including behavioral changes.

Here are what a few of Melisa’s clients have to say about her coaching work:
“Melisa completely opened my eyes, brain and heart to realize my serious behavior patterns that have been destroying my life. I have tried other forms of counseling and it has helped, but nothing like what happened in that round pen! It was uncomfortable but clearly an ‘AHA’ moment that has transformed my reactions to my life entirely. The pattern is broken through a horse and Melisa’s technique.” ~Kristy N, AZ
“I do not have words to describe how much my work with Melisa and the horses have meant to me. No one knew I was ready to end my life the week prior. I had been thinking about it a lot. The work with the horses inspired me to make changes in my thinking and my behavior that have led to real concrete actions. . . which have given me hope. The first hope in a long time. No one knew how close to the edge I really was. . . Melisa, your work pulled me back, turned me around, and propelled me forward in a new direction.” ~ Chandra B, VA
“Your being in Bend was perfect timing. I am overall a skeptical, logical and analytical type of personality. I was amazed how safe I felt sharing as you affirmed through the horse, many things I already knew. I fought the truth of my ‘story’ and let it rule my life. If I believed in magic. . . I would call you magical! ~ Michelle, OR
