Letter From Isabelle
I grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut, which I still call “home,” and moved to Arizona in 1995 to earn a BA from Prescott College in Experiential Learning.
After falling in love with my husband and the southwest, we built a family and life together in Sedona, Arizona.
In 2004, I founded Equine Guidance®, a somatic-equine-therapy, Sedona-bucket-list experience with my three American Bashkir Curly Horses, Mimi, Penny, and Salsa. Together we assist people in resolving trauma, enhancing leadership skills, and learning personal mastery.
My continued learning embodies an additional 5200 hours of certifications specific to equine and somatic healing modalities and personal and leadership development.
In 2008 I earned my CACREP accredited excellence in counseling master’s degree from the University of Phoenix. I began working as a full-time licensed mental health professional in residential treatment centers until 2022.
I am a licensed professional counselor in Connecticut and Arizona via telehealth.
I have traveled and lived worldwide and enjoy people’s diversity and cultures from everywhere.
I spend my self-care time in nature, hiking, skiing, horseback riding, and finishing my book on equine therapy, a dynamic approach to healing trauma.
I look forward to working with you online or with the horses in Sedona.
