We have enjoyed a successful collaboration with Excelsior since 2021. In the midst of a pandemic, Excelsior took extraordinary measures to provide their youth with healing and therapeutic options.
I highly recommend their diverse programs for local youth. Call today to discuss enrollment options.
Kodie is trained in a variation of EFP called Equusoma. In this modality, horses are co-facilitators along with the therapist during the session. In a sense, they are viewed as a professional. During session, horses lend their nervous systems to the client during the therapeutic process. This allows the client to work through their nervous system processes externally and internally. This format provides space for the client and the horse to be seen and be heard. People who benefit from Equusoma may include but not limited to those with traumatic experiences, intergenerational trauma, anxiety, and self-esteem.

Schedule a consult to find out if Equusoma is for you.
Wild Skye Healing
Equine Gestalt Coaching & Reiki
I have been trained in the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®. This therapeutic modality utilizes somatic experiences to assist the client in releasing trauma from the body, and the horse coach assists in processing the experience. The two-year program includes trauma-informed training and I approach the work with an emphasis on the client’s strengths and abilities, rather than a deficit-based approach. I am partnering with the Second Chance Ranch sanctuary for retired sport horses to offer this unique form of therapy.
My training also includes healing energy work as a Certified Karuna Reiki Master®. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) harnesses the unseen energy that flows through all living things and directly affects a person’s well-being. When your energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress. Reiki promotes stress-reduction, relaxation, and healing.
To provide healing from trauma and foster feelings of significance and peace for First Responders and their families by intimately connecting with them through Coaching and Reiki.
