As a child Shoshana had an affinity with horses and spent many summers trail riding and hanging out at various horse farms. Although never far from her heart, she moved away from this passion to pursue university studies and eventually a career as a clinical social worker and university professor. Recently Shoshana brought together her two passions; helping people heal and working with the wisdom of horses.
As a clinical social worker for over two decades, Shoshana brin gs an expertise in the treatment of trauma, relational violence, addictions, anxiety and post-traumatic stress to her work in Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy. She see s nonjudgmental relationships and a balanced connection between body, mind, spirit and the environment as essential for fostering health and wellbeing. ”
“The sensitivity and perceptiveness of horses facilitate connection to intuition and body and help cultivate a mindful presence with self, others, and the world around us. Connecting with the exquisite sensitivities of horses opens up a powerful space of healing in which wounds and silences can be transformed and authenticity can be uncovered.”
