My daughter has Austism. I have taken my daughter Nature,s Edge for the last year or so. I love the staff and the philosopy they have. They are professional and very caring. They will find what works for the client. Not afraid to think outside of the box. Very positive and determined to help each and every client and meet them where they are at.

Nature's Edge is a top notch facility nestled into a beautiful setting. The staff are well trained and very loving. The amount of dedication put into each client is outstanding. I am pleased to be a part of this center.
The owner and founder of Nature's Edge is very passionate about helping others and educating the public. Becky is incredibly knowledgeable (SMART) gifted in her field and the results speak for themselves!
Nature's Edge is a place of healing. Watching the crew in action with a difficult client riding a horse and seeing a change happen within the client is fascinating.

Nature's Edge Therapy Center, Inc. helped me have hope again.

On August 21st, 2015 my son, Marshall, was an articulate, intelligent, caring and independent 5 year old. The next day he was on the way to wedding with his sister and mother when their car was t-boned by a school bus. The girls didn't survive. Marshall spent the next 95 days in the hospital. He had a broken leg, fractured hip, broken ribs, contusions and lacerations and later, when the seizures started, he developed a traumatic brain injury affecting his sight and coordinated motor control.

The road to recovery is a winding and bumpy one. Sometimes you feel as if your stuck in the mud or just going in circles trying to find your way down the path. Until I hooked up with Nature's Edge I felt lost. It felt as if we were aimlessly wandering through this unfamiliar territory with no real chance of finding our way through. The wonderful staff at Nature's Edge help to make sure your moving in the right direction. They go above and beyond not just to treat my son but to care for him. They have a plan to move forward but M's needs (physical and emotional) are always a huge factor in the decision making process. Nature's Edge has the most knowledgeable staff in our area and they are continually searching out new techniques and technologies to improve their ability to help. With the help of Nature's Edge I started to believe that my son will be able to regain some of the independence he used to enjoy. They gave me hope again. And hope is the most powerful tool you can have with you on the road to recovery.

Nature's Edge Therapy Center utilizes a unique approach to therapy to reach individuals who may not respond to traditional therapy techniques. I especially love to hear the stories and see the photos of the positive impact the animals have in the care of our patients. We have an awesome group of dedicated and talented staff and volunteers who help us reach our mission.

I have been a volunteer for 15 years so I have been involved in many aspects of the Nature's Edge mission. Working with Becky, the staff, and other volunteers is a very rewarding experience. The therapists unique and creative approach to treatment produces amazing results. Whether I am observing or participating I always learn something new or someway to contribute. Volunteering at Natures Edge is a learning experience that teaches me how to better help people. Nature's Edge Therapy Center is a special place for all of us.

Years ago I worked for an agency that sent residents for speech therapy. The staff worked with me to teach me how to use the communication aides to not only help the resident but also to teach other staff on the proper use of communication boards. Since then I have become a respiratory therapist and work with people who have lost their ability to speak. With the training I received at Nature's Edge, I am able to show new staff at my facility how to effectively use communication boards to enable patients to effectively communicate.

My nephew has a traumatic brain injury and started Nature's Edge therapy to gain his motor functions back. I have been so pleased with how much time and energy and care the staff at Nature's Edge put into sessions. My nephew loves getting on the horse, and I have seen so much improvement in his motor skills since he began therapy with Nature's Edge.

Our son loved to go out there for therapy and has finished. They have helped a lot and very understanding and we're able to adapt and to help us and him at very short notice. He has since finished and is now volunteering out there. They are a lot of help and a blessing to our family. Thanks nature's edge.

Nature's Edge Therapy Center is a very relaxing place for people to receive treatment. While volunteering I've noticed that patients and their families feel comfortable being in the calm environment and enjoy seeing all the animals there. The staff is very friendly and helpful to all. The center is located on a beautiful property with some exceptionally made riding trails.
