Erin has been a lifelong horse lover and spends her free time riding the trails & dressage with her two horses, Gideon and Belle. She has worked as a professional in the equine industry since 2016 and has worked in places from carriage driving, to therapeutic horseback riding, to summer camps as a ranch manager, to owning her own horseback riding lesson business. She has been training at Skye Therapy since 2020.
Erin has her associates in Equine Science from Scottsdale Community College, Bachelor’s of Science in Nonprofit Management and Leadership from Arizona State University, and is pursuing her Masters in Counseling. She is also a Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship. She has experience working with special needs children. Her dream is to become a professional equine assisted counselor specializing in grief, first responders and Autism!
Coaching works well for clients with behavioral problems, ADHD, low self-esteem and anxiety. Horses are anxious creatures so when working with them the client learns how to manage their own anxiety. Erin has many years experience in working with anxious horses which has proven to help her in assisting clients with anxious behaviors. Anyone with significant mental health problems who needs therapy will be referred to a mental health counselor as coaching is not psychotherapy.
Sessions range from $130-175 for a session with Erin and her horses at her stable at 22807 S Recker Rd, Gilbert, AZ 85298-8936.

This practice is dedicated to Kona! He was a loyal therapy dog for 10 years. He helped this practice thrive and dedicated most of his life to helping clients. He lived a long life but passed of bone cancer in 2023 just shy of age 12. He will always be in our hearts and his love will last decades to come… “I loved you for all of your life and I will miss you for the rest of mine.” Thank you to all of my clients for loving him and helping him to thrive for the time he had on this Earth! He truly loved his job and chose to work up until the week he passed.
