Janet has lived among and handled horses for the majority of her life.

She was born onto a horse-breeding farm owned and operated by her veterinarian, horse-training father. She was taught how to handle horses as a horse trainer from as far back as she can remember. She competed in Western Pleasure and Barrel Racing when she was young and has since ridden and trained horses all over the world. She is now partnered with her father in the re-birth of their horse-breeding business, training horses, leading trail rides, competing, and teaching horsemanship and riding lessons. Janet has also been trained in mediation and conflict resolution and is certified in supporting religious workers overseas as well as being a certified Cerny-Smith stress coach. She is pursuing certifications in Equine Assisted Services from “The OK Corral Series” and “The Horse Course.”

Steve and Janet met at church and were connected through a shared vision of offering Equine Therapy to those who have served overseas - for Steve as veterans and for Janet as religious workers. Both have served overseas themselves and have had to find healing from PTSD and other issues related to and as a result of that time. Both have also found immense healing in working with and being around horses and understand the ways in which horses can touch parts of the human soul in ways little else can. With Steve’s background in counseling and Janet’s background in horsemanship both believe they have the opportunity to offer something truly unique and special to those needing help.

-- Our Story --

The O.K. Corral Series*
*currently pursuing

The O.K. Corral Series educates, promotes, and supports professionals in the practice of authentic equine-assisted work. Authentic equine-assisted work honors and integrates natural horse and herd behavior as a model for human mental and emotional health using the equine-assisted philosophies developed by Greg Kersten, Founder of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.

The Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling degree is designed to train you to serve as a counselor in local churches and other ministry settings. You will be equipped with the necessary skills to assist those in need of Christ-centered counseling and/or pastoral care.

The Mission of the Health Care Management (HCM) program [at SIU] is to prepare students for future entry-level management roles in healthcare service settings and/or to academically prepare them for graduate education.

The Horse Course is a revolutionary approach to mental health/self-regulation designed for those with complex psycho-social needs with excellent impact evidence. We help people to become calm and focused by learning to communicate with specially trained horses from the ground. Our programs train people to recognize and manage emotions causing them to become  disengaged, chaotic, shut down or aggressive.

Dr. Charles Solomon pioneered a strategic, short term counseling model that applies deeper life sanctification to the heart of the counselee’s psychological and behavioral problems. While understanding the counselee’s inner conflicts in the light of human development, the ultimate answer to remedy dysfunctional symptoms is the provision and appropriation of Christ as Savior, Lord, and Life. It is termed Spirituotherapy to honor the ministry of the Holy Spirit–the ultimate Counselor. The Bible is the all-sufficient source of truth, wisdom, and revelation to resolve non-organic counseling problems. Solomon noted, “It is possible for counseling to be Bible-centered without being Christ-centered or Cross-centered. Christ-centered counseling (grace-oriented) will always be biblical, but biblical counseling is not always Christ-centered.”

Our goal is to help people in any country to adjust and change during times of transition. Failure to adapt is costly, and successful adjustments do not come easy. Adjustment takes time, commitment, skill, and energy. We realize that healthy adjustments lead to greater satisfaction, increased productivity, and general well-being, so we created these powerful assessments that help equip people with the tools they need for success.
