What Clients Are Saying
It was magical!
My work with Patches was, well, amazing. Sure I was still scared, but in the moments when he came close I felt cared for, heard, seen and healed. There were moments when I wanted to just melt into him. I haven’t felt that in wayyyyyy to long. It was magical.
Simply, Amazing! Magical!
I had tried Cognitive Behavioral Therapy before over the years with moderate success; but I have never been able to completely resolve any of my issues! I had read about Equine Assisted Therapy and thought I would give it a try. I am so thankful that I did! Working with Joanie, Patches and Luna at Authentic Strides has made a tremendous difference to me! Simultaneously, they are kind, loving, supportive, gentle, spiritual and intuitive! Together, Joanie, Patches and Luna have helped me realize and release, once and for all, some old, emotional wounds that were stuck in my body, for which I am truly grateful! I look forward to my continued work with Joanie, Patches and Luna! Each session has been amazing and wonderful!
Joanie and her horses have been insrumental in myhealing process after long-denied sexual assault, and have helped me better understand who I am as an individual and my place in this world. I would absolutely recommend her and praise the work she’s done to help me be a stronger version of myself.
Joanie is spot on and kind, yet direct. Joanie allowed me to speak freely and feel safe while doing it.
