Review for Horses Healing Hearts Inc, Boynton Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a professional in the field of therapy, I am please to tell the story of a little girl in the Horses Healing Hearts program. This young girl has survived a substance addicted father, whom is currently in jail for theft and drug use. She talks about witnessing him kicking her dog and banging on doors and walls, which has caused her to develop a protective hypervigilance around her father. In addition, she has taken on the burden of adult responsibility. Her mother has worked hard to provide her with as much stability as possible and her love and concern for her daughter is palpable. She has put her daughter in traditional therapy but something seemed to still be missing for her child. The mother saw a brochure for HHH and enrolled her daughter. It was at Horses Healing Hearts that the little girl was not only around other going through similar incidents, but the Founder of the organization had actually lived through such events during her own childhood. Both mother and daughter now have a strong support system that includes a better family life and a sense of accomplishment in having established a secure environment for both of them. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to see the benefits of Horses Healing Hearts and the positive impact it has on their participants.
