Soul to Soles Connection, a 501 (c) 3 organization, is dedicated to the mental health of America’s veterans, active-duty personnel, first responders and their families. Participants, suffering from trauma, PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) or Military Sexual Trauma (MST), are offered the time to work through challenges with the support of our professional facilitators.
Our mission offers mental health treatment, with horses, focused on reducing the impact of trauma, while rediscovering confidence, compassion, and trust. We provide a supportive haven, where concerns and struggles can be explored and released. The experiential nature of working with horses, engages the active and retired military in their own healing process, reaching solutions that meet them squarely on their own terms.
Soul to Soles Connection is committed to “Stomping the Stigma” around mental health, especially within the military and first responders, through individual/couple/family sessions, EMDR sessions, closed groups, retreats, meditation, and Reiki.
“Providing FREE counseling and wellness, with horses, to America’s veterans, service members, first responders and their families, focused on healing from trauma.”
Trauma treatment is a difficult process, especially within the military culture. The unique demands placed on America’s service members and their families can lead to tragic consequences: PTSD, depression, divorce, drug & alcohol addiction, trauma, and suicide. These challenges deserve our most effective healing methods – The Horses and Nature!
Military culture values hands-on action. Mental Health with Horses works where traditional methods fall short. Decidedly action-oriented, mental health with horses engages clients to understand and recognize patterns, build on their personal strengths, and translate emotional insights into life-changing actions.
Horses have an exceptional ability to support clients, serving as metaphors and powerful stand-ins for the people, issues, and challenges in real life. Horses, coupled with our professional facilitators, ensure service members, veterans, and their families can acknowledge, then integrate new perspectives and behaviors into their lives.
