Happy 2019

The News is GOOD!

In 2018, we were able to provide over $14,000 in discounts and scholarships for people in need.  This is because of the wonderful people who support our programs and donate.  Our gratitude is endless.  And we have exciting news for 2019! So stay tuned for a very special announcement 😉

Our 2019 schedule is done and we have even more exciting programs to offer.  We are now accepting new clients for animal-assisted therapy, an in-office (sort of) counseling that always includes some four-legged therapists while we explore your path to a more fulfilling life.  Marybeth's approach is strongly based in the Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) model, as well as a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Positive Psychology.  As with all the programs at HorseSpeak, counseling sessions are extremely affordable. If you feel ready to make a change, just make that one phone call. (209) 772-3871
